Connecticut Veterans Legal Center is proud to work every day to secure veterans’ access to the benefits they earned. Army Veteran Kevin S. shares his story below:
After noticing my application to the VA for healthcare benefits had been denied, a case manager through the Wounded Warriors project had suggested I accept help from a lawyer who works for Connecticut Veterans Legal Center. After some time, but of no fault of her own, I received a call from Attorney Janice Wolf.
She explained who she was, how she could help me, and the circumstances to which my particular case was being reviewed. I found out that they were reviewing the type of discharge and also if my treatment in the Army deserved a service connection and disability rating.
Because of Janice’s help, the service connection was granted for two types of disability: one an anxiety disorder and the other a torn meniscus. I cannot express the gratitude I feel towards [Connecticut Veterans Legal Center] and the amount of psychological freedom their service has granted me. As a veteran, I cannot recommend them enough if you feel as though the VA or military has not been accountable for your experiences.
