AcknowledgementsThe VALOR Guide was originally conceived by Adam Siegler, a Veteran of the Iraq war, as a means todevelop a comprehensive database of legal service providers, improve access by Veterans andcoordination among providers, and systematize the delivery of legal services to all Veterans. The name“VALOR Guide” was developed by Jack McBride.In 2010, the Founding Editorial Board created the Los Angeles edition of the VALOR Guide. In 2012, theEditorial Board expanded the VALOR Guide into a series of six volumes, to include all of California.The VALOR Guide project is unique, in that the law students on the Editorial Board have directresponsibility for the development of the project and the production of the VALOR Guides. These lawstudents deserve special thanks and recognition for their efforts to help Veterans.The VALOR Guide reflects the joint efforts of the law firm of Greenberg Traurig and Loyola Law School,along with the generous support and effort of many other firms, agencies and individuals.

Introduction1 Greenberg Traurig, 2012
IntroductionIntroductionThe VALOR Guide gathers together in a single reference all known providers of free legal services forVeterans in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, in order to provide Veterans with the legal serviceswhich they need and have earned through their military service to this country.There are numerous organizations which provide medical and social services for Veterans, and there areother guides for these organizations and services, but there is no comprehensive system to provide freelegal services to Veterans. The VALOR Guide addresses that need by bringing together a network of lawfirms, clinics and other providers who are dedicated to providing free legal services for Veterans. Notevery legal clinic or military legal assistance office can handle every type of legal problem, but byworking together, they can provide the right service in the right location.Getting Into the VALOR GuideIf you would like to include your organization in the VALOR Guide or would like to submit a comment,please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Greenberg Traurig, 2012
