As a long time supporter of the Armed Forces of the United States of America, and the California National Guard, Ms. Cusack’s office offers sliding scale rates for deployed military personnel who require legal representation or assistance within California and the San Francisco Bay Area. Ms. Cusack served as a Major with the United States Volunteers, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Final Military Honors at funeral services for eligible veterans. Ms. Cusack also served as the JAG for the 31st REG, USV. In 2006, Ms. Cusack took on the role of Team Leader for Wreaths Across America at the San Francisco National Cemetery, located in the Presidio. There, she organized, recruited, and led multiple teams of volunteers who came together every Winter Holiday to lay wreaths and observe with great thanks those serving in our military, whether home or abroad, past and present. The leadership role of the Presidio event was handed off to the Civil Air Patrol in 2011.
Ms. Cusack has also joined with the American Bar Association to accept referrals of military personnel in need of legal representation for dissolution (divorce) and custody issues venued in the San Francisco Bay Area. She also assists veterans with the submission of paperwork for veteran benefits, and provides civilian advice to military JAG officers in various area of civil law. All of these services are provided pro bono. For more information on these programs, contact the American Bar Association.
