The Veterans Advocacy Project provides legal assistance to disabled veterans seeking fair and timely benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Armed Forces. Sidley assists veterans with claims for service-connected disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs; claims for medical retirement benefits from the armed forces; and applications for combat-related special compensation from the armed forces. We also represent veterans with petitions for discharge upgrades to the armed forces. In 2020, our lawyers and staff dedicated more than 8,000 hours to 135 matters on behalf of our veteran clients.
