This episode of the Next Lawyer Up podcast features Bart Stichman.  There has been a lot of discussion in our country over the last couple of decades about how we, as a nation, need to do more for our veterans.  To that end, I can’t imagine that there are many individuals who have done more for veterans, whether they know it or not, than attorney Bart Stichman.  Even with high-flying degrees from the University of Pennsylvania,  New York University School of Law and Georgetown University Law Center, Bart has kept a singular focus on doing public interest law for his life’s work.  Beyond that, he has focused his entire forty plus year legal career devoted to helping veterans get their benefits from the VA.  Bart is the co-founder and current executive director of the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP).  Bart’s litigation efforts through NVLSP have resulted in payment of more than six billion dollars in disability and healthcare benefits to hundreds of thousands of disabled veterans and their families.  Additionally, Bart helped organize and currently serves as a trainer for the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program, which has recruited and trained more than 2,000 volunteer attorneys over the last 25 years to represent those who have appealed to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims without a representative. Bart is also a co-author of The Veterans Benefits Manual, a 2200 hundred page treatise published by Lexis.  This masterwork is a must-have for any attorney practicing in the area of veteran’s law.  I enjoyed getting to know Bart on this podcast and I think you will too.
