Comrade Ed Fishpaw offers pro bono legal service for homeless (or formerly homeless) veterans.

Traffic Court Only

COL (R) Edward Rinker Fishpaw, USAR (MLS, JD, Esq.) – (aka “Colonel Ed”) -- is a life member of VFW Post 7589 and a native of Manassas, VA.  (Colonel Ed was known as the “Lawyer-Logistician” while serving as a DIMA Reservist on The Joint Staff, J-4, in the Pentagon.)  After retiring from federal government service, he started a law practice that focuses on Traffic Court cases.

As a trial attorney authorized to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Colonel Ed has offered to help homeless vets and formerly homeless vets who have issues in Traffic Court.  This is done on a “pro bono” basis.  For those formerly homeless vets that do not qualify to have a court appointed attorney, Colonel Ed may be able to help them also on a “pro bono” basis. 

For more information, contact Colonel Ed directly by non-confidential communications.   Email him at, or call/text him on this cell phone at 703-627-6121.
