The Attorney General's Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance is actively working in collaboration with partners across the state to connect Washington's military service members and veterans to legal services and resources. The Attorney General's Office is also working to increase the availability of civil legal assistance programs specifically focused on helping the men and women who have served our country in uniform.
Military service members and veterans deserve to receive the full slate of benefits and protections they have earned. Federal and state laws extend certain rights and benefits to veterans and service members, including, for example, laws to help avoid credit and foreclosure problems, and laws to protect against discrimination in employment and housing. Veterans and service members may also be entitled to healthcare, education, and other benefits.
As part of the efforts of the Attorney General's Office to make sure Washington's military service members and veterans have access to legal resources, the office provides information through the links below and in the Attorney General's "Military & Veteran Legal Resource Guide." These resources can help educate veterans, military personnel, and their families about certain legal rights, protections, and benefits that may be available to them:
- Legal Assistance for Veterans & Military Personnel
- Consumer Protections for Veterans & Military Personnel
- Employment Protections for Veterans & Military Personnel
- Other Benefits & Legal Protections for Veterans & Military Personnel
