The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Denver Regional Office will hold its second Veterans Stand Down event on Thursday, November 8, 2012. Homeless veterans with certain types of open court cases in the Denver County Court can meet with Denver County Court Judge Raymond N. Satter and volunteer attorneys to resolve those legal issues. Denver Bar Association volunteer attorneys will also provide information and referrals to legal services organizations.
“We had a great response last year to the court being in place at the Stand Down and we’re happy that we can continue to offer this valuable service, in addition to Denver Bar Association volunteers providing general legal information. In this way, veterans can take care of old pending matters and have important benefits reinstated once again,” noted Satter.
The Veterans Stand Down will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the Colorado National Guard Armory at 5275 Franklin Street. Veterans who attend will also receive food, clothing, health check-ups, and employment services.
