  • 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

Docket Dates

Question

We have an appeal that was sent to AMC well over a year ago, it's back at BVA...docket date in 2005.

I called today to see what docket YEAR the VLJ's are currently working on.......the BVA told me they are on 2008 now.

Who really knows?

Patience is a virtue?

Yikes....I guess it's beginning not to be one of mine.

Just needing some support. Everyone here is so friendly, like a family.

Thanks.

They finally ajudicated mine...a 2004 case, in 2010.

Try to do something to make your brain focus elsewhere for your own good. Maybe a good deed for someone else will help you forget while you wait. I put it away in my head as much as I could when I was in limbo, and after all the work was done, and as I never thought I would win, even though I had a good case - it helped me deal with the waiting.

Good luck ~

Thank you for your response. Oh I have plenty to keep my mind busy, that is for sure. This claim was filed in 2003 and with a docket date of 2005, they told me yesterday it won't be long because they are working on case from 2008.

I remember when you posted your grant....it was a great day!

Until we get a decision, we'll stay busy, still it's on the back of your mind. Like a dull toothache. So, every one in awile, I need a positive nudge....and I read the

successes here and it helps.

Thanks again!

    • 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...
