New Initiatives to Combat Unemployment Among Veterans

Over the course of the last week, the headlines have been filled with news of several new initiatives in place to combat unemployment among veterans. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto support our veterans and believe that we should continue to assist them as they reintegrate into life here at home. That’s one of the reasons we created our annual Business Plan Competition.

But the competition goes beyond just providing jobs. We are trying to help Veteran entrepreneurs become successful, so they can in turn hire more Veterans.

Client Reviews
"We tried to go through the insurance company ourselves, but they basically just laughed at us. So I got in touch with The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto. The insurance company's attitude really changed, and within a week we had our car replaced and rehabilitation going for my wife. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto stuck in there and fought for us." J. Felver
"Had it not been for The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto, I would be in a mess. I would not have been able to handle the paper work or things that would have been required to stand in a court of law myself. They got the most that I could have gotten for any injury that I had. I was more than pleased with the settlement. They handled my case promptly and very professionally." D. Blakeman
"I would recommend The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto because they are for the client. They are extremely tough when they go to court, they keep you well informed, and they treat you as a person. They are extremely good attorneys. They changed my life. They helped my life because they believed in me. They fought for me. I thank God for them." C. Scarbrough
