Attorney Howard Fetner won a discharge upgrade case for a disabled Army veteran who previously received an unjust less-than-honorable discharge. An unjust discharge can prevent veterans from accessing benefits they earned through their service and can create overwhelming challenges in the transition to civilian life. The veteran client now carries the honorable discharge status that he deserves.

Attorney Fetner is senior counsel at Day Pitney LLP in the firm’s Labor and Employment department and has served as a pro bono attorney for the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center (CVLC) for seven years.
