FH+H is honored to announce that our firm has been nominated for the “Veteran Business Mentorship Award”, which is sponsored by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce. The award honors an organization for actively integrating veteran-owned businesses and veteran entrepreneurs into the business community in the Northern Virginia and D.C. area.
As a veteran-owned, entrepreneurial law firm located in Tysons, FH+H makes a concerted effort to support those previously involved in military service.
“Our lawyers regularly represent military service members and veterans for matters including security clearance issues, administrative separations, and petitions for the correction of military records,” Managing Partner Tom Craig said. “They often do so for reduced cost and sometimes pro bono.”
For example, FH+H Senior Associate Marlena Ewald dedicates dozens of hours of pro bono legal work each year to Capitol Post, a leading business incubator that helps veterans start and grow a business or explore a new career.
The professionals at FH+H also work with organizations to help them understand the needs of veterans.
FH+H Counsel Phillip Carter contributes research and policy expertise on veteran’s issues as a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. His research about issues facing veterans and military personnel informs leaders about making positive differences in veterans' lives.
“Our firm understands the importance of empowering veterans and transitioning service members through hiring, career advice, and volunteer work,” Mr. Craig said. “This understanding will continue to drive the activism and empathy that all of our lawyers exhibit towards veterans in our community.”
