I have never worried about what "stage" it is in, I liked it better when they just said it is at the ratings team, because basically the VARO doesn't know what is happening with it, they have a good idea where the file is sitting whose work area, they have to gather all the evidence, decide if the issue is a SC problem is the evidence there to prove it, set up a C&P exam then they rate it, it has to be approved and the statement of the case and the decision have to be written up the VA does NOT have time limits on their actions it may get done in 6 months and it may not get done in 14 months we have time limits in which to file Form 9s, add new evidence file NODs etc, they have none they do it when they do it normally you get an initial decision in 6 months if you are lucky NODs and appeals any where from 1 -3 years but does it spend 2 weeks in this department and 3 weeks in this area and 4 weeks here and 2 weeks in C&P and 3 weeks in rating and 2 weeks in approvals ( I have this term or "signatures" ) to many people assume they are then getting some type of award even denials have to be approved are you looking for a flow chart? on whats supposed to happen?

    • 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...
