    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

Received White Envelope


Well, one of my claims finally came in. Started at 70% ended at 70%.

ED 0% SMC awarded ( K )

Left Lumbar Radiculopathy was 0% increased to 10%

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome DENIED

Hypertension associated with lumbar disc herniation L3-4 and L5-S1 DENIED.

I still have a NOD pending for unemployability. and, I have a claim waiting for certification to go before the BVA in Washington DC.

I see listed under my evidence, I was ordered to have another C&P exam ( VA Joint Exam ) which I completed. This exam was for the BVA in DC. so I know they received the report. But, nothing in this letter mention in detail the results from that exam nor my NOD for unemployment. I quess I wait again. My DAV rep wants me to come in to see him soon.

I am thinking I should wait before starting more action ( I have one year from stamped date ) to file another NOD. let the VA try to clear up their mess?

If there is a question there I don't see it but as far as waiting the whole year to NOD whatever you plan to NOD. Remember the sooner you start your NOD the sooner it may get finished.

Hi Woody,

Wish you'd gotten better news.

Time to regroup and assemble the strongest case you can for approval.

I don't know the NOD process so can't help you with that but Hang in there! :smile:

Wish your news would have been better.

When your at 70 % an additional 10 % doesn't do much.

Maybe your NOD issues will pan out down the road.

Thanks All, My question was, How do I go about having a C&P exam at a different facility?

On one of my exams, the Dr. stated I have foot drop. I have hade Major surgery on my foot, but the surgeon who did the job, screwed up and messed my back up.

The surgeon is head of the podiatry dept. and also the C&P examiner. ( with his team ). He won`t admit he made a mistake so I want a different set of eyes to look at my condition.

    • 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...
