If you are an active-duty servicemember looking for help with a legal issue, but don’t meet the requirements to qualify for help from OLHO, the Ohio Military/Veterans Legal Assistance Project may still be able to help you. OMVLAP also offers Legal Salute Ohio – a reduced-fee program for those who are currently serving. Please visit our sister site at for more information.


Make a Donation, Make a Difference

Servicemembers put themselves in harm’s way on our behalf every day, and many of them are unable to afford a lawyer when they really need one. But you can help!


Operation Legal Help Ohio provides legal representation to low-income veterans and servicemembers – and this project can only be sustained with help from people like you!

Attention Attorneys: OLHO Needs Your Help!

We of the legal community are among the millions of Americans who have significantly benefited from the willingness of Ohio’s veterans and active-duty servicemembers to voluntarily put themselves in harm’s way. In a very real sense, one might say that they have already paid their legal fees.


If you’d like to help return the favor by volunteering to provide civil representation to Ohio’s low-income veterans and servicemembers at no charge to them, please complete the online registration form for Operation Legal Help Ohio by clicking on the button below.
