Question

So every time your appeal gets remanded it gets placed on a waiting list to begin awaiting a docket number? Currently my claims awainting a docket number again after the remand.

My understanding is that the docket number does not change and once the remand gets back to the board it gets handled in docket order.  My remand was held at the local office for three years, no excuse for that, but once it got back to the board it was completed in six months.

I just completed a remand which was a JMR remand.  This means Va admitted to a mistake, rather than the judge ordering a remand.  Its kind of a negotiation or settlement, where the claimant and VA agree to the remand terms.  

I got my OLD docket number so I got back to the BVA in approximately 6 months, instead of much much longer with a regular appeal.  

Going on memory alone, I think my cavc remand was in April, and my board decision was completed in August.  

However, I can not promise your remand will be complete in 6 months, as each case is different.

Yes I hear you apparently it's now administration case processing but I feel like I'm screwed since my attorney withdrew from my appeal he felt it's not worth the hassle for him. So now I'm unsure of where the send their questions if they have it

With "For Fee" Lawyers, it's always about the $KKKKK$.  VA Appeals only source of large $$$$$ is the possible Retro Award. 20% of $10K isn't enough Blood in the Water to get or keep the SHARKS interested.

Contact the Vet Consortium Pro Bono Legal service in DC. They don't take a $% of your Retro. If you end up with a BVA Denial and they take you to the CAVC and prevail with either an Award or a Remand, they'll be awarded Legal Fee paid by the VA, not you.

They helped a friend get a BVA Denial (2015) then a CAVC Remand (considered a Win at the CAVC for Legal Fee Awards) at the CAVC in early 16 after Attigs Firm said they were too busy to rep him at the BVA. He ended up getting about $6K on the ED Remand and a continued Denial on the Hypertension. The VCLS took nothing from the eventual Retro Award but collected about $18K in legal fees immediately from the VA after the CAVC Awarded Fees.                Semper Fi

I agree with Gastone.  Remember this:  Most of the time lawyers pick claimants or decide to drop some for their own reasons.  In 2002, I had the VFW "drop" me because they said my claim wasnt "viable", and I have persisted and am now 100 percent P and T, from when vfw said I had no chance.  You see, I knew more about my medical history than they did, and, you also know more about your own cfile than does your attorney.  

Dont take it personally when an attorney drops you or turns you down.  Most of the time it has more to do with their caseload, just as I found out was the case with vfw.  Remember, VFW at one point thought Vietnam Vets were not "real" vets, because the Vietn nam disagreement was not a declared war.  This, of course, is Veterans fault, not the fault of politicians who decided not to "declare war" in Vietnam, even tho about 67,000 Vets lost their lives and only about one tenth that many lost their lives in the "War . in Iraq".

    • 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...
