Veterans Law Committee
Would you like to show your support for our military veterans through your committee service at the OCBA? You can reach out and make a difference for veterans in the Oakland County community by participating in the Veterans Law Committee.
The Veterans Law Committee focuses on veterans’ issues, including recruitment of OCBA members to take pro bono cases related to veterans' matters and participation in many Veterans Court treatment programs. The committee works to heighten awareness and increase participation in Veterans Day observances in Oakland County; supports and fundraises for Vets Returning Home, a 40-bed veterans shelter in Roseville, Michigan; and sponsors the Veterans Speakers Bureau.
The mission of the Veterans Committee is to identify and address issues of importance to veterans and active-duty service members, including legal assistance through participation in pro bono programs.
Join us on the second Tuesday of each month at 4:30 pm at the OCBA offices.

THE COMMITTE AT WORK
During the month of November, the Veterans Committee participated in “Operation Good Cheer,” a 50-year program spearheaded by Child and Family Services of Michigan which helps make Christmas wishes come true for over 7,000 foster care children in Michigan. Committee members stepped forward and provided enough donations to fulfill the Christmas gift wish list in its entirety of one child and complete the lists of several other foster children. The committee’s Operation Good Cheer effort was led by member James Zellen, Cpt. MP.
