    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

NOD at 1 year Mark

Question

Hello,

 

  Just a quick question, My NOD is coming up on a year mark since I filed and my VSO said I should have an answer before the year mark is up. It has moved from GOE to review of evidence on ebeinfits. Has anyone else had that happen? thanks for the help.

Root beer I don't wanna bring ya down. I have had a NOD in for 2 1/2 years with no contact from VA or DRO, I requested a DRO review. Just in the last two weeks I saw movement on claim. On Ebennies it went to PREP FOR DECISION. Man was I surprised, The original claim was filed mid 2013.  Its a no brainer to me and everybody else because the physical disability is visual. 

It was my first claim to VA and the county VSO worded it and sent claim in for me. Ever since I have been sending my own claims in with my wording. I did the appeal with NOD and sent it in. Root beer I believe everybody's  NOD is different. It would be hard for me to believe time frames would be the same for appeals requesting NOD. It disheartens me thinking about it. That's why I haven't been around here for a while. It does me good to back away and not dwell on appeal. The whole VA thing drains me dealing with Veterans Affairs.  I saw where Trump signed a bill here a couple weeks ago to fix appeal process but that is suppose to take time to get going.

I had Appeal with NOD requesting DRO informal meeting. I figured it would take 6-12 months. 2 1/2 years still waiting. I am not represented by anybody. Just me vs Veterans Affairs.

I feel the same way. I have DBQ's from my doctors in, Nexus letters from both my VA docs as well as my own doctors and still I sit and wait, and the worst part is the more I read the more I think I will be denied again just because

    • 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...
