    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

Had C&p Today...


i have been having dreams about this exam since i got the notice of the date. in my dream - the examiner was a vampire. i am happy to report - NO VAMPIRE! they screwed up the appt by scheduling me for a review instead of an initial exam. i was almost turned away at that point. i started crying and the lady in the office went off on me and demanded to know why i was crying! then got defensive saying "shit happens and aint no need in cryin' about it!" mind u, i hadnt sd anything at this point. she jumped to conclusions. she pulled me in the office and continued to go off on me about crying. a psychologist came in the office and sd she had a no show and would be happy to take me. we get in the office and the anxiety was rising. she reassured me that there was no reason to be upset bcuz we would not discuss the "details" since it has already been corroborated of in-service stressor. so, after our conversation she takes me to another room to do the 567 t/f questions. omg!!! r they serious on those? then some guy came in the room being loud and it was just the 2 of us in there. made me really uncomfy. i told the dr when she came in about it and then hurried to finish the questions. during part of the exam, she was looking over my file and asked if i had got an attorney after they discharged me. told her no and asked why. her words, "cuz they dropped the ball more than once with u!" i was shocked by her statement. all in all, i feel it was a good exam and it sounded as if i just had to wait on the rating. is this a pretty fair assumption for those of u that have been thru this?

soooo glad its over! thx again for all the support from u guys n gals!

I have seen copies ready in a few days to 2 weeks and rating decisions 45 to 60 days.

Some are longer depending on the workload of your RO and what month they are actually working per date order.

    • 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...
