Stratton led efforts to start a non-profit, Operation Legal Help Ohio, that provides pro bono services in Ohio to low income military personnel and veterans in certain civil issues. Now 300 volunteers strong, Operation Legal Help Ohio continues to grow. Stratton serves as President.
American patriots have put on the uniform of this country and placed themselves in harm’s way on behalf of all of us. Yet sometimes, upon return to civilian life, or even before, they find themselves entangled with our civil system of justice and insufficient income to hire an attorney.
Operation Legal Help Ohio seeks to connect these low-income military personnel and veterans to volunteer lawyers – at no cost – as a way of saying “Thank you, job well done.”
OLHO serves all qualifying Ohio servicemembers, veterans and immediate family. However, such service relies on volunteer lawyers and is contingent upon their availability. There may not be an available volunteer lawyer in all areas of the State of Ohio at all times.
