    Honors/Awards:

    • Chairman's Award, The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program, The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program has been serving veterans and their families, caregivers, and survivors for more than 26 years, helping them win access to the care, benefits and compensation they earned through military service. TVC has operated the federal Pro Bono Program for veterans on behalf of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims since 1992. TVC maintains a trained National Volunteer Corps of over 2,500 highly skilled attorneys, paralegals, and related pro bono professionals providing legal services free of charge to veterans and their loved ones in the US and abroad. Through its National Volunteer Corps and staff, TVC has handled more than 47,000 requests for legal assistance and placed nearly 6,000 federal cases with pro bono attorneys. “We have a real shortage of Spanish speaking lawyers to handle cases for Spanish speaking individuals who have appeals before the court,” says Judy Donegan, TVC’s Director of Litigation and Case Management. “Javier has proven to be critical to our mission and I believe will continue to be so. Being a veteran himself, he has a real passion for fellow veterans.” It is because of his dedication to serving TVC’s Spanish speaking clients, willingness to take on cases that need immediate representation, and for achieving favorable outcomes in most of his cases, that Javier Centonzio has been named The Veterans Consortium’s Volunteer Inspiring Pro Bono (VIP) for October 2019. We will also honor Javier on 6 November at our 2019 Pro Bono Mission Partner Reception with TVC’s Chairman’s Award for his tireless devotion and ongoing service to the veteran population, 2019
