Veterans Advocacy at Swords to Plowshares

Swords to Plowshares (motto: Vets Helping Vets since 1974) reports:
"Swords to Plowshares is one of the few organizations in the country that provides free attorney representation, case management and advocacy to veterans. We have widespread impact by helping veterans access the VA benefits and health care they have rightfully earned and rely on to rebuild their lives.

Did you know?

Not all of our country’s service men and women are guaranteed benefits or medical care from the VA after they have served.

The staff at Swords have been practicing VA law and providing free benefits advocacy to veterans for decades. They advocate on behalf of veterans by removing obstacles that prevent them from being eligible for VA benefits and services.

Our Legal Team specializes in:

■VA benefits claims and appeals

■Military discharge upgrade reviews

Our Impact last year

We provided free legal advice to nearly 500 veterans, 189 who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each year, we win hundreds of thousands of dollars in VA disability compensation and pension on behalf of our clients and we leverage several times more than what it costs Swords to provide these services, at no cost to the veterans themselves. We have won more than 90 percent of the cases that are followed through to conclusion.
