If you are a present or former veteran who has been charged with a crime in Rhode Island you may be referred to the Rhode Island Veterans Court. This relatively new concept in RI guides veterans through a court program which combines support services, treatment plans, and the judicial process. The goal of RI Veterans Court is to divert individuals away from jail while providing necessary rehabilitative services.
Once our attorneys get your case accepted to the Veterans Court, we will reach an agreement with prosecutors that will result in the disposition of your case. Often, our attorneys are able to get criminal charges dismissed outright upon the successful completion of counseling or therapy.
