Hey Papabama,

I requested my C-file by submitting form 21-4138 via snail mail. I called the 1-800-827-1000 number and they said it should take about a month to get them. I read where a number of other people say it can take months to get them.

I had to physically go to the Birmingham VA medical center and sign a paper to get them to send my medical records. The lady said it will take 20 business days (a month) to get a copy, because my records back through 1995 are in storage. This is supposed to include any medical records from when I was treated in their outreach clinic in Gadsden, AL.

For military service records:

That's about all I know.

I'll include Kaela in my prayers. I hope she gets well.

The decision maker at the VARO makes the decision on if your disability is service connected and assigns the percentage level.

That is sad news and Prayers can work wonders. Stay strong for her.

It took me about 6-7 weeks to obtain my husbands SMRs and military records from NARA.

But he served in both USMC and the Navy.

The records NARA sent me were his Navy records and they said the VARO Buffalo had his complete USMC records.My vcl;ai, there was pending so I guess that is where they were.I didnt request them from VARO.

    • 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...
