Rate this question

Art J


Anyone have a recommendation for a VSO in Baltimore to assist with a new claim? Anyone have a positive experience with a VSO in this area? Anyone?

Thanks... from my experience the AL at that RO is terrible... they almost never answered the phone, never returned calls or emails and when I was able to reach them, they had no info... I got my brown envelope for my claim in January, and they have never notified me of my decision... I am currently at 10% and 0%... and now want to file for something I didn't know I could file for and AL never told me...

balt. dav told me I had have treatment records from discharge to current day to be successful. I knew they were wrong so I went looking elsewhere.

AL - took me in and like you said -- no calls, nothing. I finally made an appointment to see them. The guy talked about issues that I did not think were service connected like my knee. He made copies of my records for me but in the process he changed my official record to look like I was put on profile for an injured knee. I was on profile for a broken toe but he overlapped that with my enlistment paperwork where I told them about a knee injury 3 years prior to serving.

-- two months later the guy was killed while riding Harley. His secretary became the VSO. I won all of my claimed conditions and then dropped them.

Now 6 years later I put in claim for increase and a couple of other conditions and the VA (on there own) put in for a knee condition. I went to the c&p and told them I never claimed a knee condition adn the doctor still wrote that it was service connected.

I don't trust any of them. I would not use a VSO if I were you.

If you are going for TDIU or 100% or big retro and you feel swamped hire a lawyer. They go for the big money claims and they usually know what they are doing in your appeals. Most of this stuff you can do on your own using Hadit.

I totally agree with these guys Art. I'm in Arizona and trying to find an VSO that's knows what he/she is doing and cares about your claim is almost impossible. I'm not saying their out there, it's just if they are, I can't find them. Now with all the troops coming home these VSO's are going to be swamped so if I were you, I would LEARN with the help of Hadit to file your own claims. That's why Tb constructed this site and that's to help Veterans with their claims among other things. Do yourself a HUGE favor and learn how. You'll be glad you did!
