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!

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
