Veterans Law Center Expands Operations & Changes Name

 

 

 

   

Douglasville, Georgia – In the face of an increased number of veterans needing assistance, a poor national economy, and decades-high unemployment, the Veterans Law Center, Inc. (VLC), a 501(c)(3) charity, has changed to meet the challenges and continues its vital mission of assisting veterans and educating the public.

 

"We have witnessed a steady increase in the requests for assistance from veterans," declared H.R. “Hal” Moroz, a Georgia attorney, former judge, retired Army officer, and Chairman of the Board for the VLC, "and we continue to do what we can ... it is during times such as these that the need for financial support is at its greatest ... ever more than last year!"

 

With this in mind, the Board voted to change the name of the VLC from the "Veterans Law Center of Jacksonville, Inc.", to the "Veterans Law Center, Inc." "We believe this more accurately identifies the operational area for the VLC, as many military veterans thought our assistance was limited to the city of Jacksonville, Florida," Judge Moroz stated, "It clearly is not!"

“… the Board voted to change the name of the VLC from the ‘Veterans Law Center of Jacksonville, Inc.’, to the ‘Veterans Law Center, Inc.’ ‘We believe this more accurately identifies the operational area for the VLC, as many military veterans thought our assistance was limited to the city of Jacksonville, Florida,’ Judge Moroz stated, ‘It clearly is not!’”

In addition, the VLC has boldly met the challenge of expanding its outreach by opening a field office in the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville, Georgia.

 

"America is the proud home of 24 million military veterans who answered their country's call with honor and sacrifice,” said Moroz. “800,000 of these veterans reside in Georgia.”

 

The VLC continues to field dozens of inquires by veterans each day, and actively educates attorneys on veterans law issues.

The Veterans Law Center is led by Hal Moroz, a retired U.S. Army airborne Infantry officer, former county judge and city chief judge in the State of Georgia, and longtime veterans advocate. In fact, for the past decade Judge Moroz trained lawyers on veterans law matters at legal seminars for the State Bars of Georgia and Florida, and represented U.S. military veterans around the world and before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and the United States Supreme Court.



”As a veteran and an attorney,” said Moroz, “I recognized the need to provide a service to these men and women who made the sacrifice and provided us the very blanket of freedom and security that allows us to live our lives as God intended. This was the idea that sparked the creation of the Veterans Law Center, which supports veterans and their families not only in Florida and Georgia, but across the United States.”



VLC Services include:

(1) Veterans Law Seminars
(2) Legal Counsel on Dealing with the Department of Veterans Affairs
(3) Legal Representation before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, D.C.

If you are interested in the Veterans Administration (VA) claims process, you are invited to view an article by Judge Moroz in the February 2002 issue of the Georgia Bar Journal. It was originally written for Georgia lawyers so they might assist veterans, but it is generally written for all veterans. The article is entitled "Defending America's Defenders: Advocating on Behalf of Georgia's Military Veterans," and it covers just about everything you ever wanted to know about the VA claims process ... from the start and all of the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, if you had to go there!

Veterans Law Center on Assisting Veterans & Educating the Public

 

Jacksonville, Florida – Despite a poor national economy and high unemployment, the Veterans Law Center of Jacksonville, Inc. (VLC), a 501(c)(3) charity, continues its vital mission of assisting veterans and educating the public.

 

The past year has seen a steady increase in the requests for assistance by veterans and other, and more often than not, the VLC has been unable to assist the vast majority of those seeking help.  "Our limited resources are overwhelmed," commented H.R. “Hal” Moroz, a Georgia attorney and Chairman of the Board for the VLC, "but we continue to do what we can ... it is during times such as these that the need for financial support is at its greatest!"

 

"No one on the VLC staff is paid for their services," said Judge Moroz.  "This is a labor of love provided by veterans for veterans and their families."

 

The simple message of the VLC continues to spread, as Judge Moroz and his staff have educated others on their mission at such places as the CSX Corporate Headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida, during a breakfast hosted for the VLC on April 21, 2009.

 

The VLC continues to field dozens of inquires by veterans each day, and actively educates attorneys on veterans law issues.
