  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Pctinc2001, I recommend calling the largest law firm you see listed or advertised in the phone book, and asking them if they know of a firm in your area that specialises in Veterans Disability.  That's how I found my attorney, and she is excellent.  As far as a doctor that writes IMO's, your attorney might know of some good physicians. If you have trouble finding one,  there are doctors you can mail your records to that will write you an IMO based off of your records, if you have a difficult time locating one in your area.

Attorneys for vets don't have to be local to your residence.

I live in FL, and my law firm is in the Midwest.

A veterans law firm should have a list of medical providers they use and send you to one of theirs for a sleep study

First thing is  find a law firm.

Start with a NOVA lawyer.  You can search here:

https://vetadvocates.org/welcome/find-an-attorney/

Im using Julie Glover of Glover Luck in Dallas Texas, even tho Texas is a long way away from me.  

I have been pleased with Ms. Glover so far.  She has won a JMR, and got 6000 in attorney fees paid by EAJA, that I wont have to pay, ever.  Since she charges 20%, that means unless I get MORE than 30,000 in retro, I will pay "0" attorney fees, and only 20 percent for anything over 30,000 in retro.

 I could not find a competent experienced VA lawyer in my state.

PCT, slow down a skosh. Why do you think you need an Attorney and a DR for an IMO? Before you give up 20% of any Retro or spend $1+K for an IMO, let's see where you're at from an SA standpoint.

How about supplying us/me with more specific info regarding your DX's, SC Timeline and redacted copies of your C & P DBQ's and Award/Denial Letters?

There's a list of about 12+ or - usual suspects when it comes to causes of OSA, CSA or MSA. How many do you have and exactly which type of SA are you DX'd with? Do you currently see a non-VA Sleep Neurologist for treatment?

Give thought to starting an SA Secondary to PTSD, New Claim on your E-Ben site, to lock in your Retro File date. You have 364 days from the File date to hit the submit button, should be plenty of time to get your Ducks in a Row.
