Resources for Veterans and Families
Justice For Vets exists to expand the reach of Veterans Treatment Courts by working at the local, state and national level. We are often contacted by veterans and military families seeking specific assistance relating to a criminal or civil case. Justice For Vets is not a law firm and therefore cannot provide legal advice, however the following resources may be of assistance.

Every U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs VA Medical Center in the country now has a Veterans Justice Outreach Specialist (VJO) whose job is to liaison with veterans involved with the local criminal justice system. You can locate your local VJO here.
