    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

Fallen And Having A Hard Time Getting Up


Well hey all. I have been assignedd to attend these weekly PTSD group meeting and its been really hard. Not really sure how I feel about it. My head is swimming and still having all sorts of dreams of being buried alive. Being stuck in a hole and waiting to exhaust myself to the point where I eventually just fall out and sleep. The MH docs gave me this exam and I got a 50. So as far as VA goes to me it really means nothing. I'm already TDIU P&T. At least now I am getting out the house but what chaos I have to go through. I have a new power chair and they screwed up with getting me the correct lift for my vehicle which is on its last leg. So I cant tote my chair around usually have to be put in one of the VA wheelchairs when I get there and leave mine at home in the mean time until I find a way to transport mine. Well they did apologize and say they are working on it. So it will be ok. I know I sound like I am here there and everywhere. I hate going to those PTSD meetings but I am hanging in there, and I get all anxious and worked up for the rest of the week after leaving there. Not sure why I am writing this just venting I guess.

Thanks Pete. I know you know what I mean when it comes to anxiety etc. I just really dont see how going over it and reliving these things are suppose to help. I get tore up listening to the other veterans experiences as well. I do know the grass is not greener on the other side and there are lot of people suffering alot worse than me and I feel for them. Thanks for caring. Off of subject for a sec but I wanted to ask had you heard anything about the VA only allows 2600 veterans into the ILP at any given time?

I would not be surprised and I know that they operate on a budget and not a need basis

    • 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...
