In Utah, Veterans Day is not just November 11. It is every day with the “At Ease” Program—matching pro bono lawyers with those who have served in uniform.
With the support of the Utah legislature and governor, Attorney General Sean D. Reyes created Utah@Ease to ensure our military servicemen and women had access to the legal representation they deserve without burdensome cost.
If you are a Veteran or current service member and you need legal advice or assistance, we may be able to help.
The Utah Attorney General’s Office and the Utah Department of Veteran and Military Affairs can match you with a private law firm that won’t charge you for reviewing your case or representing you if they take your case.
Not all types of cases fit the program. For example, we do not have the resources to handle criminal defense matters. If you have any questions, please email the program director, Larry Schmidt, at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure you qualify.
Thank you to all our volunteer lawyer partners, their law firms and the Utah State Bar for generously donating your time to support our service members and Veterans!
It’s a way to give back to those who have given us so much.
