Kristina Derro, the practice attorney for Legal Help for Veterans, recently assumed her role as Chair of the Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA). OCBA is the largest county bar association in the state of Michigan. She was nominated for the position by the members of OCBA in recognition of all of her work for veterans, and she previously served as the Vice Chair of the committee last year. Kristina has been working with veterans for the past decade, as well as doing volunteer work and pro bono legal work for veteran-centric non-profit organizations.
OCBA’s Veterans Committee focuses on veterans’ issues including recruitment of OCBA members to take pro bono cases related to veterans’ matters, heightened awareness and increased observation of Veterans Day, support to deployed military through provision of care packages, sponsorship of a Veterans’ Speakers Bureau, and support of Veterans Treatment Courts (in lieu of traditional jail time for minor criminal infractions).
We are honored that Kristina was nominated for the position and pleased that she is bringing attention to veterans’ issues on a larger platform.
