When Bryan Noyes returned to Maine after military deployment, he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and faced significant barriers to establishing financial stability.
While struggling to support himself, Bryan discovered that he was heavily in debt. He turned to Pine Tree Legal Assistance for help.
Pine Tree Legal’s attorneys helped Bryan repair his credit and legally recover from crippling debt. “[Pine Tree Legal Aid has] helped me move on with my life,” Bryan said. “The assistance I gained from Pine Tree Legal Aid was priceless.”
Today, Bryan is back in school with steady employment. He shares Pine Tree Legal Aid’s veteran resources, like StatesideLegal.org, with other members of the military in need of legal help.
