    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

There is a group of Attorneys,(who kick Butt) located in Montgomery,Alabama. I just eMailed them to see if they would be taking on the VA-helping us with our claim.

Might help if Vets would sent them eMail asking for there help.

You can check them out at BeasleyAllen.com

webmaster@beasleyallen.com (eMail)

We really need to try to get Attorneys who are willing to learn VA Law,to be on our side.

June 2007 is just around the corner.

I cant agree more-

I am going to try to collect a data base here in New York State-

maybe if others volunteer by the state they live in we can get one going-

then again- if I was a lawyer, interesting in this new reg- I would start advertising at all the vets sites.

ALLSUP, Inc- the SSA people who have been mentioned here -called me the other day and were very interested in all this- they aren't lawyers but still a good potential source to pass this info on- as they see many vets with SSA applications-who could potentially have SC disability too-

and vice versa- they liked this site and want any SC vet who might be eligible for SSA to access their site and they can give an assessment on their potential SSA claim in a very short period of time.

I couldn't help but say to the nice woman Ruth who called me from ALLSUP- that I wished she worked for the VA-she and the firm at ALLSUPs are disability specialists who view disabilties in a different way than a ten-fifteen minute C & P exam could possibly cover. They have a fee and therefore are quite thorough in reviewing the records.

If they take the claim- and the claim must fulfill the work credit etc SSA criteria- their success rate is 97 % for SSA awards.

I dont really know why they were so interested in the pending lawyer regs but still-

anyone who can pass this info on might reach lawyers who would access our site as she did-

I am glad this is a separate topic because more info is sure to come out before the regs are in affect.

I was a federal civilian employee and I got hurt on the job. There were just a handful of lawers nationwide that would handle federal workers compensation claims because the feds had made sure their was no money in it like with VA claims. This was supposed to make it non-adversarial, ha, ha. I did a lot of reading and talking to other injured federal employees. Finally, I started getting phone calls from lawyers who actually did federal workers compensation asking ME for information. Some injured employees who had taken disability retirement started working with other current employees with injuries on a fee base.

I bet something similar will happen with VA claims. Those who can work and have a lot of knowledge about the VA system could possibly make some money helping these lawyers work claims. I can't work because I get IU but someone out there could maybe make a living helping lawyers get up to speed. The VA lawyer connection will become an industry just like the SSA/disability claims business. You know the lawyers will probably hire ex-VA claims raters to help them defeat the VA. This way the lawyer can charge a big price and pay the ex-VA rater to do all the work and still make money for doing nothing except showing up at hearings. Just watch some law firms hire VA broken down DRO's to work as consultants to beat the system.

I would like to know if anyone knows if there is a lawyer in or near Houston Texas that will fight for me?

I read all this lawyer talk on the board but, I am still confused. Can I hire a lawyer or not? Where do I find one? I am sick (literally) and tired and I do not remember things anymore. I cannot fight them anymore as I cannot maintain cohesive or cognitive approach. Hell, I can't even remember what I did last. I do know (as my wife has pointed out) now that I have had 3 or 4 VSOs and I can't tell you who they are. Well that's enough complaining. I just need to know who what where how to get a lawyer involved.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.


      If you prefer to give through a subscription, you may subscribe here the rates are $5 per month or $50 per year and gives you an ad free experience on the forums.



      Thank you for your support!

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
