O’Melveny Worldwide

Veterans Initiative

O’Melveny has a long history of supporting and advocating for veterans and military families. Our internal veteran advisory group, O’Melveny Salute, has more than 50 members representing all branches of the military.

Led by Lee Blalack and Edward Hickey, O’Melveny Salute commits to partnering within the firm and externally to assist with the most pressing needs of our veterans and military families. Our approach includes on-campus recruiting and joining career fairs for the specific purpose of recruiting more veteran lawyers and staff to the firm, providing pro bono legal assistance to veterans and military families, and volunteering our time and resources to support veteran-specific non-profits.

O’Melveny has hosted pro bono clinics in our offices and virtually, specifically for veterans. Considering the sacrifices our service members and their families have made for our freedom, O’Melveny Salute is our small way of expressing our appreciation.
