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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

I wish I had read this sooner-

The first AO Thailand vets award came a few months ago-

Guam vets had won I believe 2 AO claims with some on remand.

The doctor cannot provide an AO veteran an inservice nexis-as exposure to AO- you need to do that.

Study the claim here from James Cripps in Claims Research-he just got the first CONUS award for AO.

It will show you the type of evidence you need to have.You MUST prove direct exposure to AO inservice.

You still must prove your own direct exposure to AO in Guam.

I just redid my guam contamination claim due to direct exposure because I worked on the contaminated tarmack / runway at US NAS AGANA GUAM about 1/2 the time every week setting up jet engines in the TEST CELL a little coral blacktop enclave CUT OUT OF THE JUNGLE on the edge of the tarmack. I used the latest fast letter NEXT DAY DELIVERY== RECIEPT All of these TARMACKS were sprayed to keep the jungle and brush back.

    • 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...
