Starbucks’ ‘Military Mondays’ bring legal services to veterans.
Exclusive Brief: 

Antoinette Balta came into her regular Starbucks to pick up coffee the store was donating. She ultimately walked away with much more.

Balta is a lecturer at the University of California Irvine School of Law and a captain in the California Military Reserve, where she’s a judge advocate general. She also cofounded the Veterans Legal Institute, which provides pro bono legal assistance to veterans related to housing, education, employment, disability claims, and healthcare issues.
