Serving Those Who Served

Latham lawyers ensure US veterans get the benefits to which they are entitled.

November 14, 2017

Latham & Watkins is committed to helping veterans, including those who served in the post–9/11 conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, rebuild their lives. Lawyers in nearly all of our US offices, as well as expatriate colleagues in London and Milan, participate in Lawyers Serving Warriors, an initiative instituted by the nonprofit National Veterans Legal Services Program to provide legal assistance to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with disabilities.

Led by San Francisco partner Andrea Hogan, together with associates Taiga Takahashi and Shira Epstien, senior paralegal Susan Omokawa, and legal secretary Linda Mihalik, more than 400 Latham lawyers have taken on over 200 matters on behalf of US veterans in the last five years. Our firm’s Pro Bono and Executive Committees recently honored Andrea and her team with the 2017 Robert M. Dell Prize for Extraordinary Public Service, in recognition of their tremendous effort and dedication to pro bono.
