SCRA Claims: How to Get Attorney Help

A scale on a table in a courtroom

The Veterans Benefits Act of 2010 (PL 111-275, 124 Stat 2864) was signed into law on October 14, 2010.  It includes an important new provision for service members who have been harmed by a violation of the federal Service Members Civil Relief Act.

The new provision allows a Court to award the costs of litigation and  reasonable attorney fees if you prevail in Court on your case.

The new provision should make it easier for you to find a private attorney willing to represent you on a SCRA claim, if you have a good case.
