Allison Chisolm


Allison Chisolm serves as an Attorney for the Veterans Legal Services Unit at Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy. She helps low-income veterans obtain service-related payments and benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Prior to joining the Advocacy Center in August 2022, Allison was a judge advocate general (JAG) in the United States Air Force. She was a reservist for eight years before transitioning into the active-duty force. Allison acquired her Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center. She also has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Howard University, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Maryland Global Campus. In her free time, she explores her love of travel, reading, writing, watching college (Clemson) football, and attending plays and concerts.

Allison works at the Advocacy Center because it provides her with the ability to continue working in a service capacity while representing the most vulnerable members of the Military. I have spent my entire adult life in the United States Air Force. The military is my family–it is my tribe.”
