The NVLSP is a national, non-profit organization that has worked since 1981 to ensure that the government provides our country’s 22 million veterans and active duty personnel with the benefits to which they are entitled due to disability. resulting from their military service. The NVLSP has been able to help hundreds of veterans obtain vital benefits.
We are then joined by Rob, a veteran who served in Afghanistan, and WilmerHale partner Amy Doberman, who worked on his case. While Doberman has over 25 years of securities and financial services experience, she has also dedicated her practice to working with veterans and helping them apply for Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC). Rob served as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps for 12 years, including the war in Afghanistan. He retired from medical treatment in 2019 after sustaining serious injuries in the line of duty and was able to secure CRSC with the help of Doberman and the NVLSP. Prior to his retirement, Rob was stationed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, where he completed three tours of duty between 2009 and 2013.
