Lang, Richert & Patch Attorneys Volunteer at the Central Valley Veterans Stand Down 2010

Managing Partner and Construction Attorney, Mark L. Creede, Employment Law Specialist, Charles T. Taylor, and Commercial and Business Transactions Attorney, Victoria J. Salisch provided voluntary legal services to our local veterans at this year’s Central Valley Veterans Stand Down which took place September 22nd through 24th. The purpose of Operation Stand Down is to assist disadvantaged veterans who are having difficult times. The goal is to assist veterans who are homeless turn their lives around and to thank them for all of the service they have provided to this country. Being the son of a World War II Battle of the Bulge survivor, Purple Heart recipient, and prisoner of war, Mark Creede has a special interest in helping veterans. “Charles, Victoria, and I felt privileged to be able to assist veterans in need, and we and other members of our firm look forward to participating in future Veterans Stand Downs,” Mr. Creede noted. Lang, Richert & Patch is grateful for those who served and was honored to be part of such an important event. Thanks in part to their help, over 80 veterans received advice and counsel regarding various legal issues including housing (eviction defense), general civil litigation, family law, estate planning, public benefits, tax , health, and employment law.
