Remand Stall?

Question

On May 18th, 2009 the BVA remanded my service connection claim back to the RO to have a 2nd Comp exam performed, this time the doctor is suppose to review my c file first. Today, June 3,2009, I got a letter from the "VETERANS SERVICE CENTER MANAGER" stating that it was their "sincere desire to decide your case promptly, However as we have a great number of claims, action on yours may be delayed". I'm new to this so could anyone tell me if this is just a form letter that everyone gets when a case is remanded? Also where exactly is the Veterans Service Center in the VA chain of responsibility??

Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!

[On 12/08 Dr. had file open at C&P, later psycholigist didn't know what to ask as he hadn't been sent my C file. Any C&p's I've been too the Dr. has been referring to the C file he has obviously read to ask about my balance, and head injury, how else could he know what the open claim is. About form letter I have no idea, is letter numbered, need more info.

The Veterans Sevice Center (VSC) is your claims office, at your VARO, where you filed your claim. The VSC manager or VSCM signature is on all letters. Sometimes there's a name and sometimes not. It appears that VA employees have become fearful of retaliation and rightfully so, for their handling of claims and no longer sign decisions. It is a standard form letter that is routinely sent out. A BVA remand, generally takes up to a year and sometimes more depending on the VSC, their workload and how they feel about your claim. Just hope for sooner.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
