NOVA Presents Kailey King with the NOVA Pro Bono Advocate of the Year Award

Congratulations to Kailey King, who received the NOVA Pro Bono Advocate of the Year Award at NOVA’s Spring 2024 Conference! The Pro Bono Advocate award is presented to recognize achievements and a continuing pattern of excellence in providing pro bono assistance to veterans and their families. 

This year’s recipient is the Manager of Operation Stand Down Rhode Island’s VA Disability Claims Unit. Operation Stand Down is Rhode Island’s primary nonprofit resource for homeless and at-risk veterans.  Their mission is to strengthen the veteran community by providing crucial wrap-around services.

She assumed her current position with OSDRI in 2019. Prior to joining OSDRI, she was the managing attorney for the VA division at Rob Levine & Associates, where she established a division dedicated to helping veterans in their pursuit of VA disability compensation for injuries sustained during military service. She is an active member of NOVA and the granddaughter of two Korean War Era Veterans.  She graduated from Roger Williams University in 2010 with a B.A. in Legal Studies and Clinical Psychology. She went on to attend Roger Williams University School of Law.

NOVA members note that “Kailey has demonstrated exceptional adaptability, tending to the needs of those facing significant challenges and committing herself to serving the homeless and at-risk population. Her journey from private practice to public service has been inspiring and commendable to witness, and the transition was not a career move but a commitment to a cause greater than herself.”

Thank you, Kailey, for your tireless pro advocacy on behalf of our nation’s veterans!
