There are close to 20 million Veterans in the United States. Many Veterans have been denied VA benefits or received a low rating. If you have been denied or received a low rating, you may want to pursue your right to appeal. The VA is designed to be a “non-adversarial” process, and the law requires the VA to have a “Duty to Assist” veterans. However, year after year, the VA denies an unprecedented amount of valid claims. If you served at least 90 days of active duty and received a discharge of other than dishonorable, and your injury or disease was caused while serving, you may be entitled to disability compensation.
The disability claimed must have not been a result of your own willful misconduct or abuse of alcohol and drugs. As of January 1, 2022, disability compensation for a Veteran, spouse and one child is as much as $3,653.89 for disabilities rated at 100 percent. This does not include special compensation(s) and multiple children. We handle all types of veteran disability law claims and exclusively practice veteran disability law.

This list is by no means all the case types we handle. This list is used to give you an idea of what issues you may be suffering with and perhaps not realizing that it could be service connected. Veterans definitely do not exit service the same person they were when they first enlisted.
VA disability appeals require quality and attention to detail. When you work with us you are also working with fellow Veterans who have exclusive relationships with top doctors with an array of specialties. You will work with actual attorneys from day one. You will not speak to an operator, admin or other support staff regarding your case. We understand from personal experience that your case is personally important to you. Therefore, you are assigned an attorney from day one! This approach allows the attorney to fully understand and create an effective action plan. There is an advantage to working with an attorney who is also a Veteran. Your assigned Veteran attorney has been through the daunting VA process and knows firsthand what you have dealt with.
