    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 Appeals Procedures


Good Evening Brothers and Sisters, Once again I am in a perplexed situation on what to do? I filed a claim for PTSD prior to 2007 and after the NOD'S and my Appeals I'm at the stage that presents myself with four options for a hearing to decide on my Appeal, Option 1) For me to wait to appear at an in person hearing before the Board of Veterans Appeals, what they called a "Travel Board" hearing. 2) Request a live video conference hearing before the Board of Veterans Appeal. 3) Request a hearing before the Board of Veterans in Washington, D.C. 4) Withdraw my hearing request. All four option's are very unfamiliar to me and I'm not sure what would be the best course of action to take? Option #3 is definitely out, for I only look independently wealthy and they stated that the Veterans Administration cannot pay any expenses that myself, my Rep. and/or any witnesses incur in connection with attending a Board of Veterans hearing. In their closing statement they presented myself with another option, one in which I may request a local hearing before regional office decision-makers, they stated they could hold this hearing instead of a Travel Board hearing or they could hold it in addition to a Board of Veterans Appeals hearing. One of the many pieces of advice that I'm grateful for by reading your website is the importance of reviewing my C&P file well in advance to attending the hearing, I'm going to apply your wisdom after my next appt.. and then go to the Regional Office and start the ball rolling. Many thanks to all my Brother and Sister Veterans for allowing me to pick your brains, for after all these years they make me feel like they want me to throw the towel in and give up. It's been so long fighting them that I need to get gung-ho again and refresh my memory and get my records in order and in conjunction with what's in and replace what's missing within my C&P file. GOD bless each and every one of you and thanks for your time and attention to this pertinent matter I currently have at hand. rwskitch

    • 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...
