Adapted from their "About Us" Page:
Who is StatesideLegal for?
The website is for members of the military, veterans, their families, and advocates.
What is the goal of Stateside Legal?
Their goal is to help you:
- access benefits
- find free legal help, and
- better understand your legal issues
Many websites provide information for military households or veterans. Stateside Legal's goal is to index the best legal information available in one easy-to-use site. They have also added their own interactive forms, videos, and legal analysis.
They try to deliver answers to your questions using Plain English.
Who is behind it?
Two primary partnering organizations have worked together to create the Stateside Legal website. These organizations are Pine Tree Legal Assistance of Maine and the Arkansas Legal Services Partnership. In addition, the website has received help from many volunteers, including private attorneys, members of the Judge Advocate General [JAG] Corps, civilian Legal Assistance Attorneys, and veteran service officers. See a list of their advisors.
