MCAO Employees Volunteer to Help Homeless Veterans Resolve Court Cases


Earlier this year, MCAO employees participated in the 2020 Annual Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance. These employees volunteered their legal services to help homeless veterans with outstanding minor criminal matters pending in Maricopa County. More than 222 veterans were able to resolve cases such as misdemeanors, non-victim, non-DUI cases, and certain simple drug possession cases.

“It may seem like a small thing,” said MCAO Central Phoenix Bureau Chief, Suri Reddy, “however, resolving these cases has a positive impact on these Veterans’ lives.” 

The Veteran StandDown is an annual event that helps veterans who are either at risk for, or are experiencing homelessness, receive essential services such as dental and medical care, employment and benefits assistance, housing resources, haircuts and even pet care. In all, this year’s StandDown served over 2,200 veterans.

MCAO’s participation in this event supports Veterans Court, which is part of the Maricopa County Superior Court. Municipal and Superior Court judges are also present at the StandDown, so cases can be resolved on-site.
