    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

Court Orders Ao Presumptive Rules To Be Published

Question

The twitter site for www.vawatchdog.org announced an hour ago that The US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued an order July the 15th that requires the VA Secretary to publish the new rule or an interium rule by noon Monday the 19th. The alternative is to appear and explain why not. This suit was brought by the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the NVLSP, and three other advocacy organizations. Suggest interested parties read the full account at Vawatchdog. Let the fur fly!!!!

I don't know what all this means, what about it being at the OMB for review? what does this do to Webb's hearing and Congressional review? This is all very confusing and hard to follow, can anyone explain what is going on and where we are?

Not certain what this means, however, I do know this is a second go round for the AO presumptives at OMB. I found the rule there in December of 2009. I am not certain but I believe the suit was filed because the VA was in violation of existing law and the time frames involved. The comment in the VA Watchdog article as quoted from a court observer is that the court had, had it with the VA and thus the unheard of short fuse imposed to publish the final rule in the Federal Register or an interium regulation, or explain why not. Will have to see how this washes out, but it would seem to me if the rule were published on the 19th, then the 60 days for the Congressional Review Act would begin from that date. This is speculation on my part and not to get peoples hopes up. Another poster on the Veterans Benifits Network had something similar formulated prior to this court order. Posting would prempt Webbs attempt to delay.

Thanks -I didn't realize you already posted this info!!!!

"Posting would prempt Webbs attempt to delay."

That is my take on all this too.

I have never witnessed anything like this before-this will be very interesting to see how it turns out and how it could benefit veterans who already have filed their claims.

Time is their enemy.

    • 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...
