W&M Legal Clinic for Veterans Gets $245K Grant from State




A legal clinic at the William & Mary Law School is expanding its efforts with the help of a state grant.

The Lewis B. Puller Jr. Veterans Benefit Clinic is slated to receive $245,000 from the commonwealth of Virginia to increase its services to veterans.

The grant will fund the addition of a full-time attorney, a full-time legal administrator and a part-time psychologist to the clinic’s staff.

“We are enormously grateful that the General Assembly has made this important investment in the Commonwealth’s wounded warriors who served our nation,” law school dean Davison M. Douglas said in a news release.

Founded in 2008, the Puller Clinic assists veterans with filing disability claims with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Clinic Director Patricia Roberts, who is also a professor at the law school, said veterans returning from service face an increasingly complex process to file claims with the VA.
