    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

Yes- we dont want anyone to think Sen Webb is trying to mess around with PTSD comp.

I believe this info has been posted in the Agent Orange forum.

Veterans have overwhelemed Webb's office with faxes, emails if constituents, phone calls and letters.

Sure he doesn't want to demean any Vietnam vet's service-he just wants to suggest they don't deserve IHD comp.

His contact info is available in the other forum.

More info is at VA Watchdog site

It really chaps me when I see the argument that because a lot of people have this problem that it should not be service connected. What Sen Webb is missing is the fact that VA knows and knows damn well that the per centage of Veterans exposed to Agent Orange is much higher than the general population.What happened to the benefit of the doubt going to the Veteran and not hiding behind well maybe or maybe not so you can't have it.

Next thing you know they will deny it cause there may be a history of heart disease in the Veterans Family.

I noticed the numbers of dollars.

What other statistics are they basing the new coverage on?

Historically, the VA has had to be hit over the head with evidence to service connect anything.

Especially something that could cost billions.

I would love to see the complete arguments from both sides.

Webb may have been left out of the loop when the current secretary was selected.

Nothing pisses off a politician more than being ignored.

I see this whole thing as a childish pissin contest.

If the secretary is willing to service connect something for Viet Nam vets and Webb is a Nam vet, where in the hell is the problem?

It is just about the money! He has a great pension and the best health care in the world. When he retires from the Senate he gets to keep unspent campaign contributions as income. Nice job there Senator. How many bribes can you accumulate in six years? He should have his head cut off. That would be good therapy for many in Washington.

    • 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...
