MILWAUKEE (September 24, 2018) — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that it has been selected by The Veterans Consortium (TVC) Pro Bono Program as the 2018 TVC Law Firm Pro Bono Mission Partner, National Leadership.
In a firm-wide pro bono effort, Quarles & Brady partnered with The Veterans Consortium, which assists veterans in obtaining disability benefits earned while serving our country.
