Morgan Lewis and firm client Hewlett Packard Enterprise co-staffed a Veterans' Legal Clinic on July 20 in Palo Alto, California, hosted by legal services partner Swords to Plowshares. The clinic provided counseling and assistance on military discharge upgrades and Veterans Administration benefits claims, such as retroactive payments, increases in benefit amounts, and supplemental payments. It was an excellent opportunity to provide immediate, important assistance to veterans in the Palo Alto community.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Morgan Lewis each sent three lawyers to the clinic, including some past volunteers as well as first-timers. Attending from Morgan Lewis were intellectual property associates Catherine Chou, Ying Li, and Scott Tester.
