Speaking the Language – Rendering Legal Assistance to a Veteran
Credits:  1 TBLS-Civil Trial Law; Criminal Law, Estate Planning & Probate Law, Family Law, and Personal Injury Trial Law: 1 CLE Hour
Speaker:  Janet Totter, Guardianship Attorney, Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services, Austin, TX
Historically, the Department of Veterans Affairs takes a paternalistic approach to the legal representation of a Veteran, highly suspicious of any involvement by legal professionals.  Veterans are openly encouraged to seek assistance only from Veterans advocate groups.  This presents a barrier to legal professionals who attempt to assist the Veteran establish entitlement to benefits that are managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.  The first step to removing this barrier is to learn how to effectively communicate with the Veteran in a language filled with codes, hidden meanings and military slang. The goal of this presentation is to provide an introduction to common Department of Veterans Affairs’ benefits and identify the “entry point” to request these benefits.
