  • 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

Congressional Inquiry Worked!

Question

So my VSO gave up, said he could do no more for me because the VA was not returning his calls regarding my case. I have doubts that is true BUT, I called my congressmans office and within a week, situation is resolved so far....

They had previously claimed they couldn't get my Military Personal Records from DOD, and also played the revolving door trick with my mental health doctors.

Their reply to the inquiry stated that they did indeed have all the necessary info and have made a decision.

My question is how long does it take, once they have made the rating? I already know they will deny part of it because Audiology said my hearing had improved since entering the service when I outprocessed. I disagree but whatever, the important stuff SHOULD get approved....

Im at the edge of my seat here, I wish some of this stuff wouldnt take so long. I am very happy Congressman Farr's office was able to get this resolved quicker than my VSO or I could.

Sounds as if you should be receiving your award letter very soon. As far as money in the bank, who knows.

You can try to call your VSO on Tuesday to see if he can tell you, your rating. I think Monday is a holiday

Best wishes and keep up the fight

I will try to call him.... He isnt available very often, works part time hours and is often out sick or on vacation and his replacements never want to look into anything....

    • 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...
