Who We Are


Executive Board

Our mission is to “Raise the Bar” for Veteran Service in NH.

Since January 2015, Veterans Law Project-Legal Boots on the Ground (VLP) has addressed unmet legal needs for veterans and their families.  Veterans are provided legal advice by the Director, staff attorney or paralegal, represented directly by the Legal Director or referred to VLP’s panel of well over 100 volunteer lawyers.

Today’s most commonly addressed issues are housing and matters involving child support, custody and divorce.  Many requests are in the area of criminal defense, specifically for veterans ineligible for public defenders or assigned counsel.  Additionally, VLP addresses discharge upgrades for veterans with less than honorable discharges due to service-related PTSD or TBI and a variety of other legal issues.

 

VLP represents veterans regardless of whether they are considered veterans by the VA.

Meet our board:

President & Legal Director, Larry Vogelman

Treasurer, Donna Knapper

Member & Founding Board President, Dana Hussey
