    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

to send IMO to RO after BVA hearing


my question is, should i send my IMO to the Regional Office to look at ?

i brought my IMO to the BVA hearing in D.C. around 4 months ago. i asked for the bva to take over consideration of the IMO and it was aggreed by the judge to do so. but now since my appeal has still not been decided and looks as if im still going to be waiting for some time then should i send the Great IMO to the department of original jurisdiction for consideration?

Hmm to me that sounds like back tracking a bit? I always felt that once I got to BVA I was going to give them everything I got in hopes of getting the decision I should have.

Sounds like you are just getting impatient. Give it sometime.

Jez. File a Waiver of review in the first instance so it doesn't boomerang back to the RO if you are truly worried. If you send it to the RO for a de novo review, why bother having an appeal? They'll promptly beg the BVA to remand it back to get another shot at denying you. Reason? Because by sending it in to the RO, you're begging them to do just that. The idea is to get a real attorney to view it, not a Legalzoomdotcom RVSR.  

Time for you and others to start reading what all these folks write who put good advice up here. I see the same questions posed every other week. The idea is to do your own research on what others have encountered already. If there is still something unclear, by all means ask a question. There's almost 19 years of accumulated knowledge in Theresa's library here and few will bother searching for it. Everybody just asks as if their dilemma has never been encountered before. I don't mean to sound rude but the idea of Hadit and my blog is a DIY approach- not a "What do I do now?  I got denied." Considering it takes VA years to get anything done, you could have a juris doctorate while you're waiting. For one thing, I know you are very intelligent, Paul. Why would you consider going backwards as Stillhere pointed out? It's a non sequitur. Getting it to the BVA is a major feat-the major feat, I might add -in our quest for justice. Justice is far more likely in the Courts above in case you hadn't noticed. 85% lose at the RO. 23-30% prevail if they appeal. For the lucky 4,000 + who appeal to the CAVC, fully 67% get a positive outcome and live to fight another day and fix the VSOs' screwups. You want to walk away from all that and go make another bomb run on the VARO? Time for an Intervention.

10 yrs, original claim denial on appeal, to get to the BVA? Your talking Mucho Retro $$, right. Just 4 months since BVA Hearing and you seem to be overly impatient. Why take the chance of screwing the pooch when you MIGHT be 4 months closer to a Decision? As always, your claim/appeal, your decision.

Don't take negative comments personnel, we all need other Vets to play Devil's advocate. Some of us are interested in what your thought processes were, in regards to claims/appeals decisions you've made. If you choose not to share, so be it.

Younger Vets can only learn from our failures and triumphs, if we share our experiences and personal decisions, both bad and good. Looking back 10 years, had Hadit and AskNod been on your radar, would you have handled your claims in the same manner?

    • 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...
