Provide legal services
If you are an attorney/tax expert, EBSD needs your help. EBSD seeks to provide veterans with help clearing nuisance misdemeanor types of tickets, which displaced people often have received. However, many have more difficult problems. We would like to be able to offer them advice and guidance in resolving these problems. Please contact Ron Hyde at shundahai@att.net to volunteer your services.
