    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

Question

How long on average is an appeal with the Vso.  I know Bronco said his was with his Vso for 18 months.  I believe that to be way to long.

Ok, I have another question about this process.  On my hubbys appeal,. On ebenefits it says it is with Vso.  Does that mean your local Vso, the one he went to to file the appeal?  Appeal was originally filed on 11-12.  It has a docket number.  We sent in labs after it was docketed as advised by local Vso so it would not get lost.   It is showing with Vso on ebenefits.  Does the local Vso send it to someone at D.C. Vso office?

The BVA chairmans report give the appeal times.  We can not tell you how long it will take your VSO to prepare the brief.  

If you post your docket number, someone may know how long until your BVA happens.  If it has a 2012 docket number, then you are coming on about 5 years which is about right.  If you have a docket number, it should have already been through your VSO filing a brief.

Doc number is10-39-312.  If anyone can guess when it should be thru?   We have another issue to.  They did re exams on his cads.  He is 60 percent for that,but temporary.  Today on ebenefits it shows completed as of 9-16-2016.   When I go to historical claims it says authorization review.  And view appeal status.  When you click on view appeal status, we get nothing.  Called ebenefits but they said it wold not show anything.  Then why leave where you can click on it.    I looked back at other time that it showed authorization review it was a denial of the appeal which we have in now for increase in diabetes  an ck sec to diabetes... is it possible for them to take that 60percent away.  He went to the exams that was done by Lockheed Martin.  Lol. It did say ebenefits no doc need from us.  But then it also said they did not receive anything from others.   The only way we even new about this claim was on ebenefits no letter was sent.  Then a call from Lockheed Martin for the appt.. we never got a thing from va asking us for any thing.  Any advic on what to expect.?

    • 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...
