He is putting link to hadit at his site and wanted you all to know that MANY lawyers are taking the courses in order to represent any vet or widow with NOD filed after June 21,2007.

The NOVA atorney list has tripled he thinks- and I feel it is even higher than that-

Karl is easy to talk to- and can be reached by email at his site or by phone- 1-877-527-5529.

I am sending him my CUE claims.

He confirmed scuttlebutt I have heard -that ROs are handling lawyer on POA claims by their best RO employees-

they cant get away with anything with a lawyer that they can pull on us or on our vet reps if a lawyer is handling the claim.

These lawyers get paid from the retro but the retro might never come in the mailbox without an attorney's help these days-

just like an IMO-this is an investment into your claim.

Once a NOD is filed, a lawyer can be hired- ther are plenty of them- check out the NOVA attorney list- and also maybe you can find a successful claim similiar to yours in recent BVA decision and if they used a lawyer-that would be a good lawyer for you to contact.

Lawyers get 20% of the retro- any standing POA with any vet rep org has to be revoked if the lawyer will represent you.

Karl's wife also is good- and she also reps vets-I forget her name-

This is a fairly new reg- and only applies to NODs filed on or after June 20,2007- and unfortunately the reg excludeds many of us unless we go to the BVA or the CAVC-having filed NODS for some claims prior to the reg date.

Stay away from any attorney with initials or affiliations to a female attorney whose initials are K.L.(my opinion only)

That's my opinion, too. She's an attorney in D.C.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


    Leading to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?


    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.




    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
