At Schock Solaiman Ramdayal, PLLC, my colleagues and I have dedicated our practice to representing clients across a variety of practice areas with great sensitivity to our clients’ individual needs since our founding in 2013. As elder law attorneys, our expertise lies especially within the realm of navigating these cases with the needs of the elderly in mind—whether this be in the form of special needs accommodations, estate planning, wealth preservation or veteran’s benefits acquisition.
As our practice continues to grow and our client base expands accordingly, we have recently begun to wonder how best to provide the communities we serve with a resource that could be used by our clients and their families. With a number of our clients being former servicemen and servicewomen, our goal was to not only provide something that could be provided to our general client base, but also catered to our former members of the armed forces as a sort of “thank you” for their service and sacrifice.
In Eastern Michigan in particular, there is a large and connected community comprised of active servicemen, veterans, and their friends and families that look to one another for support and guidance. With this in mind, we have recently published a resource guide for veterans living in Eastern Michigan. Our resource guide can be viewed on our website at https://www.ssrlawoffice.com/veterans-resources/.
What is the Purpose of This Resource Guide?
Unfortunately, we have all heard too many stories of our country’s veterans being under-serviced or otherwise neglected by the communities that they reside in. Too often, these veterans do not know how to best seek out the resources they need, where to find them within their communities or what type of assistance they may require.
By examining what our veteran clients identify as their biggest needs in their day-to-day lives, we have compiled a list of businesses, services and organizations that align with these needs and also offer specialized care to veterans. These include, but are not limited to:
- Alcohol & Drug Abuse Rehabilitation
- Education Resources
- Housing Assistance
- Legal Services
- Medical and Healthcare Providers
Each business and organization listed within our informational guide have been vouched for their service to veterans, and can be easily utilized by veterans and/or military personnel in Macomb, Oakland, Wayne, Monroe, St. Clair, Lapeer, Livingston, Washtenaw, Genesee and surrounding counties.
As mentioned before, these services span a variety of categories, and can be easily viewed and sorted based on the needs of a veteran and his/her family. Whether it is any kind of assistance, a desire to become more involved in an American Legion chapter, or perhaps a desire to return to educational or vocational training, our veteran’s resource guide is meant to empower and support the men and women who serve (and have served) our country.
Many of the businesses listed are not only committed to their respect and services that they provide to veterans, but are also supportive of the local communities that surround them as well. It is our hope that by recognizing these businesses, we can continue with dedicating ourselves to honoring the sacrifices that our active servicemen and veterans have made.
