Veterans' & Servicemembers' Rights Clinic
The clinic honors the sacrifices of the men and women who have worn the uniforms of our nation’s armed forces. The services the clinic provides are particularly needed in Suffolk County, which has one of the largest concentrations of veterans anywhere in the country, and is the site of a major VA Hospital, the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The clinic gives priority to matters that will prevent or relieve homelessness or remove barriers to reintegration of veterans into civilian life.
Typical matters handled in the clinic include:
- Debt relief/collection
- Driver’s license restoration
- Child support modification
- Unemployment insurance
- Warrants and fines
- Income tax
- Benefits applications and appeals
- Discharge upgrades
Our Clinic is part of the National Law School Veterans Clinic Consortium.
