Odds Of Success

Question

I put the following in another post but think it is notable enough to have it show on its own. It is very lengthy but if you sift through it you will get an idea what your odds are by VARO and also between DRO and traditional appeal.

Thanks for sharing. So , DRO reviews take longer than BVA with not much better timeliness or results. jim

That was my feeling, Jim. I know that others will disagree.

I was haunted by the words someone said to me early on. "At BVA they have lawyers that can read...."

But it is all a crap shoot. At the right VARO and with the right DRO, you win.....

It really depends on where you live. The Size of the Regional offices and number of employees vs the number of claims is also a big factor.

If a veteran lives in areas like Florida then SP Pete is a very busy place so expect longer waits.

If you live in Huntington WV Ro jurisdiction then the process should be faster.

This is what I have seen over the years.

if you are in Indy or houston, I feel sorry for you.

I do not agree with the above.

1st off, there HAS to be some sort of DRO review prior to even getting

the claim issue/s under BVA's jurisdiction - even iid it's just through certification.
