  • 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

Here is the form, just try to be brief to the point on why or how you feel that your condition should be service connected. You can also attach any evidence you think VA did not consider. You may want to wait for the official denial to know what VA said to try to counter it.

Ken,

DUH --- Since they have my POA, it would seem to me like the VSO would have

bothered to say something more like ......

We have received a copy of the VA's response to your NOD.

Unfortunately the VA Regional Office has continued to deny you claim issues.

Now we need to set up an appointment for you to come into our office.

We will discuss and explain the reason/s that the VBA provided to support

their continuation of denying your issues of service connection.

As your service organization, we can take this opportunity to help you

continue onto the next level with your appeal rights.

Together we will fill out the Form 9 which is necessary to continue on.

We will also discuss what steps you can take with your medical providers to

help advance a more positive outcome at this next level along with any additional

questions and concerns you may have.

The above is what I personally consider,a part of them, doing their job.

jmho,

carlie

    • 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...
