Not sure where denial is from. You can hire a lawyer at this stage if you want to do that.

If I am reading you correctly you have been to the BVA remanded to the AMC and received a denial

from the AMC and now your claims file is headed back to the BVA.

Have you by any chance secured an Independent Medical Opinion.

When I received my denial from the AMC, I headed to D.C for an Independent Medical Opinion

for the Psychiatrist to fax to the BVA Judge. The BVA Judge graciously waited for the opinion,

I was then awarded benefits back to 1992.

You can hire an attorney after the first denial from the Regional Office. I just recently hired an attorney and my claim has not left the VARO for BVA yet. I checked out quite a few, and many are qualified, but I liked Mark Lippman at www.veteranslaw.com. He only does VA stuff and knows his stuff! If he accepts your case then he gets 20% of any back money owed you. This is pretty much standard and to me is cheap!

Good luck!
