Veteran Ally

Brendan Garcia is a former U.S. Marine, business owner, lawyer, and dedicated father and husband. He advocates for veterans across the United States, using his expertise as a VA-accredited attorney with unwavering commitment. As a shareholder and partner at WHG and its partner firm, VetLaw, Brendan helps injured veterans in all 50 states. Brendan has worked with veterans like himself for decades, first during his service, then at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and finally as a veteran disability benefits lawyer.

His passion for veterans’ advocacy is rooted in personal experience. Brendan is a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, where he dedicated four years of active duty from 1999 to 2003. His service included two deployments to the Middle East, instilling in him a deep understanding of the sacrifices made by those in uniform. This profound respect for military service has fueled his mission to ensure veterans receive the support and recognition they deserve.

Brendan’s expertise is further enriched by his tenure with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C. His roles have been diverse and impactful, from working for the Board of Veterans’ Appeals to earning the prestigious title of Presidential Management Fellow. In these positions, he gained invaluable insight into the VA’s inner workings, from the Office of General Counsel to the Compensation Service and the Office of Business and Process Integration.

Driven by a belief that he could make a more significant impact from the outside, Brendan made the strategic move to North Carolina. There, he started his own firm VetLaw located near one of the VA’s largest Regional Offices just outside Winston-Salem. He grew that firm to be a powerhouse and achieved remarkable success in representing clients before various Regional Offices, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

Brendan Garcia’s story is one of dedication, service, and unwavering support for his fellow veterans. His journey from Marine Corps veteran to a leading veterans’ rights attorney showcases his commitment to justice and his profound respect for those who have served.

Brendan is a VA Accredited Attorney.
