LAF’s Veterans’ Rights Project is a legal services project dedicated to ensure that low-income service members, veterans and their dependents, residing in Cook County, receive advocacy and educational services regarding the enforcement of their legal rights and benefits.
Since November 2011, LAF (Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago) has provided legal services to over 900 veterans in Cook County. LAF has the unique ability to provide comprehensive legal assistance for veterans with multiple legal problems, including veterans’ benefits and discharge upgrades.
For over 40 years, LAF has been providing free legal services in civil matters to the most vulnerable people in Cook County. Solving our clients' legal problems brings a measure of stability to their lives that allows them to break the cycle of poverty and get back on track. We rely on private donations to fulfill our mission.
