Paving the way for veterans’ discharge upgrades

richardsonHPRP volunteer attorney Jim Richardson (center), our go-to expert on veteran discharge upgrades, stopped by the office yesterday to help review discharge upgrade cases before we assign them to pro bono attorneys. Jim is a 12-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and for 26 years was the senior attorney advisor for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

“Our volunteer attorneys who take the cases will file upgrade to help the veterans attain discharge upgrades and get rid of the scarlet letter of less-than-honorable discharges,” said staff attorney Michael Stone (left), who runs the Rural Veterans Legal Assistance Project. On the right is director of pro bono programs Swapna Yeluri.
