  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Ptsd Claim, Can't Use Attorney Yet

Question

Hello,

I posted a question on this board a couple of days ago regarding a PTSD claim I currently have filed, have only had two responses. I did email a copy of the latest paperwork to two attorneys, however both replied back since the claim was filed before 2007, I cannot seek councel until the claim is denied, or if I am unhappy with the award. They did both however ask me to contact them at a later date, I did email them the latest remand I have from VA. This has been going on for over 7 years, needless to say I am a little frustrated. I have pretty much filed everything on my own to date, I know this was not the smartest thing to do now.

Is there anyone on this board that would be willing, to look at my claim for me and advise me in what direction to go. I would of course be willing to pay you for your time, if interested please be somewhat qualified, and obviously privacy is of the utmost concern.

I just need some direction and advice, thank you for your time.

Brest Regards,

WH

Post all the information and you can get advice for free. If your claim is waiting for a decision you might just wait and then hire the lawyers. They have a legal responsibility and liability to do the best possible job.

Actually. Iam scheduled for another Comp. and Pension exam. I am currently working overseas. the VA called my home in FL last week and scheduled one for Sept. 12. I obviously cannot make it. I called and told them I could not be there, they said no problem to call them back about 30 days out and they would schedule another appointment. I would like to post more information about the claim on here but due to the nature of events and the unit I was in it would not be too hard to figure out my identity, I definately do not want that on a public forum.

Thanks for the replies.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with the above - but that's irrelevant.

You don't need to post anything about your unit or anything - just post what issues

you have submitted for service connection and if they were denied -

what exactly is stated in the Reasons and Bases Section to support the denial.

If you have had a "remand" from the VA - then you're at the BVA level

and can certainly have a lawyer.

It would be against the law for anyone here (or elsewhere other than a lawyer or law firm)

to help you for payment.

If you are that concerned about privacy, please don't ask people on a public web site

(definitely do not ask here) and do completely investigate qualifications.

    • 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...
