The Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands (LAS) has launched a new program with the Nashville Bar Association (NBA) to support veterans with legal issues. Called The Veterans Project, it is a partnership among the NBA, Veterans Court, Office of the Mayor of Metropolitan Nashville, Metro Homelessness Commission, Operation Stand Down TN (OSDTN) and Legal Aid Society’s Volunteer Lawyers Program. While the program is primarily focused on helping veterans who are homeless or facing homelessness, help with civil legal problems is available to all veterans. The scope of civil legal issues for which veterans can seek help includes child support, debt, bankruptcy, car purchase/repair, family law, expungement and reinstatement of driver’s licenses.
