  • 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

Hi - Just want to let everyone know there is hope if your claim is stalled. They are working at the Houston RO. 

I got a call from DRO today, and told me I was granted IU with back pay. (PTSD/MST Rape & ATT Murder) 

I have my Navy retirement too,  so I think this is the end of the road for me as far as claims go. 

I will continue to pray for adjudication with other claims. This was exhausting. 

Graduating in 72 days with my BS in Criminology- Thanks Voc Rehab.

This is wonderful news and I hope your post gives others hope!

I assume this sets up CRDP for you as well.

CRDP is supposed to be automatic but I dont know how long it takes these days.

Congrats on the BS degree too! In Criminology?????

I think the way VA handles claims is a crime. LOL  

But it looks to me like it took a little over 2 years for you to get this award?   That is not a bad time frame these days....

Treat yourself good L, a great meal, new clothes etc etc whatever it takes, because you have won a Victory and many of us know how absolutely Exhausting the claims process can be...relax now...it is OVER!

Probably every one of us  have made mistakes with our claims , L, but I love what you said...there is Pride in knowing you did this by yourself...

When I had vet reps, long ago , they made far more mistakes than I did.

I did much better when I started fighting  my VA battles myself, too.

That is not easy for every vet with a claim but the info here at hadit is way beyond the expertise of 

many vet reps and VSOs, who might have hundreds of claims on their desks when most of us only have one or two.

Great on the CRDP- that usually always goes OK between VA and DFAS , but I dont trust VA to handle that right every time.

    • 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...
