Veterans Services Programs

Veterans Legal Services Clinics (VLSC)

Our nation's veterans answered the call to serve; now CMBA members are answering the call to serve veterans.

Through the Veterans Legal Services Clinics, volunteer attorneys, law students, and paralegals will provide pro bono or low-cost services for local veterans. A team of attorneys from CMBA's Leadership Academy Class of 2020 started this initiative in May 2020.

All volunteers will be provided with:

  • A crisis contacts list to encourage social/community support that may allow veterans to have a supported experience 

  • One page information sheets created by Sections of the CMBA which provide basic legal information regarding common legal issues

  • Speaker series of CLEs which will prepare volunteers to work with veterans, addressing topics such as PTSD, trauma, veterans benefits, etc.

  • Training to complete the VA accreditation program

  • Professional liability insurance coverage for clinic-related service

Interested in volunteering with the Veterans Legal Services Clinics?

Email Katie Donovan Onders at the CMBA or call 216-539-5979 to volunteer and learn more.
