Kieran McDowell is a partner at Parlatore Law Group, who assists current and former military service members with complex legal administrative issues and the many collateral issues that may arise due to military service. Her expertise involves a wide area of military administrative law matters, including discharge upgrades, record correction, federal court appeals, entry grade credit issues, titling and indexing appeals, USERRA issues, and Veterans Law Assistance. She is also part of the collaborative divorce team at Parlatore.
As a military spouse married to a Judge Advocate for over a decade, Ms. McDowell has seen firsthand the frustrations servicemembers and veterans face when confronted with complex administrative roadblocks and consequently, is determined to advocate for these men and women. She previously worked with a Marine Wounded Warrior Battalion where she successfully secured benefits for service members who had been fighting, in some instances, for years. From this experience and subsequent appellate successes, Ms. McDowell draws on her passion to provide the best assistance to service members and veterans facing similar hurdles.
Outside of her Military Administrative Law practice, Ms. McDowell enjoys cooking, traveling, and spending time outdoors with her family.
She is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, the Western District of Pennsylvania, the D.C. District Court, the Court of Federal Claims, and is an accredited representative before the Veterans Administration.
She lives in Virginia with her husband, two young daughters, and rescue dog.
