Organization and Mission

My name is Denise Meenan, I am a retired Department of Army Civilian Legal Assistance Attorney. I started  Better Lives for Soldiers upon my retirement from the U.S. Army to address the legal needs of Servicemembers and Veterans.


Better Lives for Soldiers provides legal advocacy and related services completely free of charge to Servicemembers and Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces. 


Proceeds from corporate and private donations, as well as events we host, are used to support the organization's mission. The organization is wholly staffed by legal and business professionals, and volunteers who believe in giving back to those who gave so much for us.

If you’ve received an other than honorable, bad conduct, or dishonorable discharge you may not be eligible for certain VA benefits.

But there is hope! A Discharge Upgrade can help you get the benefits you have earned.
