The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program

Below is an excerpt:

Quarles & Brady LLP, was looking to replace a national pro bono project that was ending when a client suggested helping veterans. The idea resonated with Colleen Miller, a commercial litigation partner and chairwoman of the Tampa, FL., office's charity/community initiatives, because she was raised in a military household. She began to dig around for opportunities and her research turned up The Veterans Consortium. "I thought the program sounded phenomenal," she recalls. She did more research, connected with TVC staff members, attended a training session and dove right in. She took a U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims case through the Pro Bono Program and set up training sessions at her firm's Milwaukee and Tampa offices involving over 130 lawyers, including some from the firm's eight other locations.
