Practice Area: Veterans Benefits
As attorneys, we work with regulations and with evidence every day. We understand what it takes to build a case – how to prove the facts, how to hunt for evidence, how to apply the law to the facts.
We will review pending, undecided or old denied claims, that might be re-opened with "new or material evidence".
We will give you the weapons you need to start the process of filing for benefits.
Our VA-accredited attorneys can provide free consultations to help veterans apply for or appeal Veterans Benefit claims.

Thinking About Filing A Veterans Disability Compensation Claim? Call Us Before You File – Here's How Our Lawyers Can Help
FREE CONSULTATION BEFORE YOU FILE
If you believe that your current medical problems are traceable to something that occurred while you were in the service, come talk to us for a free conference to discuss your situation and how the law applies to it. Even if you have not yet filed a claim, we will explain what rules apply to your situation and help you understand what is important when you file the claim. We will help you identify the types of evidence you may need. The more you understand about the process, the more persuasive your claim can be.

Do you have documents from old filed claims? Bring them to us and we will review them with you for any signs that there are pending, undecided claims, or old denied claims that you can re-open with "new and material evidence." We will tell you if it looks like you might be able to ask for an earlier effective date.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU FILE YOUR CLAIM?
The VA has substantial responsibility to help you develop the evidence needed for your claim. They have to review your VA medical records and send you for medical evaluations. Upon written request, they have to provide you with your service medical records and your VA Health Center treatment records.
This is a very slow process. Certain claims get "fast tracked" but for most claims it takes at least a year. Eventually you will receive a Rating Decision.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE A RATING DECISION YOU DON'T LIKE
The VA might find that some conditions were service-connected and others were not. They may give you a Rating that is inadequate. They might decide certain claims and not others. Don't just yell and tear up the decision – call us for help.
You have one year to file your Notice of Disagreement (NOD). If we believe that there are strong grounds to pursue this appeal, we will prepare and file the NOD and we will prepare and implement a strategic plan to assemble the evidence needed to achieve your goals.
NO RECOVERY, NO FEE
We do not charge any fee for help we give to you before the time that you file the Notice of Disagreement, and there is no fee unless your claim is approved and results in retroactive benefits. The VA must approve any fee.
