My Daughter Is Looking At This Firm

Recommended Posts

Guest terrysturgis

My daughter has contacted this firm to see if they will represent her on her claim for TDIU. They are in Syracuse, Ney York. She found them on the NOVA site. Anyone had experience with them? Thanks.

No experience, but if they don't seem enthusiastic you can get another one. If you call them and they don't return calls that is one good indicator that they are not that great. They should get on the case right away and start getting records along with sending you a contract which should not be over 20% of retro. I think if your daughter is having trouble with her TDIU claim then it is a good idea to get a lawyer. You could ask them how many TDIU claims they have done in the past.

Terry I used a NOVA lawyer that won my CAD claim the one that took 7 years she took it pro pnon because it had been denied in May 2007 and we were not allowed to hire lawyers until June 2007 I offerred to pay her the 20% after we won the case she refused citing her ethics would not allow it I offered to make a contribution to a fund to help her with other destitute veterans so she could help them again NO, she even paid for a IMO she felt was needed in Jan 2009 my BVA hearing was Feb 2009 since the Judge stated the case was in relative equipose the "benefit of the doubt went to the veterans" would I have gotten the benefit of the doubt without that new IMO who knows but I doubt it he used an entirely different cause and effect and explained how due to my lab work from the Army with the raised triglyredis that my CAD was already in development stages as far back as 1978 and I did not leave the Army until 1982 and then went into the NG and was activated again for GW1 and the lab work then showed even higher numbers for bad cholesterol and higher triglycerides.

They network and if they don't know what to do they call or e mail Ken Carpenter or other pro's like him that are members of NOVA, they have quarterly training sessions all over the nation and they know and help each other when you get one NOVA lawyer you are basically hiring all of them as they help each other on how to win their cases.

I truly beleive in NOVA and their ethics is above reproach

John, they have been talking to her and asking for various forms such as SOC and some medical records. So far so good. Testvet, I can only hope that success will come her way. My daughters claim is a lot harder than the presumptives I had to deal with on my claim. Thanks Bros!

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
