Rosa's Adoption Story

Justin Storer, Lakelaw

Overburdened by student loans, a defunct car note, and medical debt, Brittany was in desperate need of filing for bankruptcy. Brittany is a veteran of the United State Army, but her VA benefits are not enough to pay her debts, care for her six-year-old son, and hire a private bankruptcy attorney.

Brittany served her country, and it was time for CVLS to serve her. She was able to connect with us through the Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network (IL-AFLAN). We reviewed her case and placed it with volunteer attorney, Justin Storer of Lakelaw.

With Justin’s help, Brittany was freed from over $30,000 of debt. Around the same time Brittany received a resolution in her bankruptcy case, Super Lawyers Magazine recognized Justin as a “Rising Star,” an honor he has received every year for the last five years!

In response to a closing e-mail from CVLS, Justin thanked us for the opportunity and wrote, “Working with y’all is one of my favorite parts about this job.”

Thank you, Brittany, for your service to our country. We are proud to have provided you with an excellent attorney like Justin, who is committed to his clients and his community.
