Cvc Got My Appeal

Guest fla_viking


Guest fla_viking

Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

I dont have to call CVC to make sure they got my appeal. I have gotten two letters from attys wanting to look at my claim. That happens once the cleark at CVC registers our appeals.

I will call them tommrow to see how willing they are to represent veterans.

You know, we ought to do what the kids do on college campuses, rating their professors and discussing who's good, and who isn't, and why. We should do the same kind of things with attorneys, I know I would appreciate the feedback before making a decision. There's one person I have in mind who I would caution everyone against, and for very specific reasons. If we had known about this person beforehand, we would have never wasted our time.

Terry-when I filed my Mandamus Writ with the court many years ago-

I got 12-14 letters from attorneys-maybe even more than that-

I knew my writ would not succeed-but a copy of it to the VARO did seem to get them working on my claim-

I figured I might need one of these guys some day and I called a few of them and asked them for the dockets of COVA cases they won and also a few dockets of the ones they lost-

This was in the days before you could access CAVC online and see what lawyers vets had used and what their success rate was.

One or two (maybe one was Ken Carpenter?) were quite willing to give me some cases they worked on-

Some of the others did not really speak VA legalise at all-and didnt seem to have a clue on 38 CFR.

The court has barred a few lawyers too I think-it pays to check out any lawyer who claims expertise in VA case law. If you succeed they get a big chunk.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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
