Here at Tabak Law, the 4th of July is a big deal. It’s a time for us to celebrate the great freedoms we have in this country – which are brought to us by the Veterans we are so proud to fight for every day.
If you are a veteran, or know of a veteran who is struggling with benefits, please don’t hesitate to call us at 844-432-0114 or visit our Veterans pages. We offer free consultations and there is no obligation whatsoever for the information.
As we all look to celebrate America’s Independence, let’s look at where the 2018 4th of July fireworks and parades are around Milwaukee WI – our home office. We hope to see you out and about around the 4th!
