Legal Assistance for Military Veterans in Farming

Jason Foscolo is a former Judge Advocate, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, and the founding partner of The Food Law Firm in New York. He and his partner, Lauren Handel are alumni of the LL.M. Program.

Jason also serves as general counsel to the Farmer Veteran Coalition and notes that the firm "is committed to the successful transition of military veterans into the agriculture industry, and . . . very proud to support the superb work of the Farmer Veteran Coalition." This is cross-posted from The Food Law Firm blog, Legal Assistance for Military Veterans in Farming.
Farming and food production can involve a variety of complicated legal transactions. Professional advice is essential at innumerable points during a farmer’s career. The Farmer Veteran Coalition now has a resource for farmer-veterans who have questions about contracts, product liability, labeling law, trademarks, or any other issue they may face. In cooperation with our firm, The Farmer Veteran Coalition can now offer a range of free legal services to military veterans who have previously registered with the Coalition. 
If you are a military veteran with legal questions about your farm business, you can contact info@farmvetco.org, or you can contact Foscolo & Handel PLLC directly at (888) 908 – 4959 or at info@foodlawfirm.com.
Jason also puts the call out to attorneys:
The Coalition supports the efforts of farmer-veterans across the country. If you are a fellow attorney willing to provide pro bono services to veterans in your jurisdiction, send an email to jason@foodlawfirm.com and introduce yourself!  We can refer veterans to you as the need for local counsel arises.
