    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

To a veteran who might be watching mail for VA LTR!!

Recommended Posts

So Checking my Mail today, And got rather excited because there was this thick envelope from the VA in my mail.  But that bubble went POP real fast when I looked at the Name on the envelope!!!  The letter is for a ZACHARY G HAGAN, and this might be a Zachary out of New York someplace because the Regional office address is BUFFALO, NY.  The address is MY address, in Massachusetts.  I am sending it back to the VA and I have called the 800 e-Benefits # and informed them about this error!!!  But I have to say seeing this very thick envelope sent to my address with a veteran's Name who I don't even know who very likely doesn't even live in this state really Pisses me off.  and also answers a question for me about a decision on a VERY SENSITIVE claim that the VA lost on me two summers ago.  The care and concern shown by the VA on a scale of 0 to 5 was minus 10.   And when I called the VA or e-benefits today about this error the only thing they had to say was " OH! Could you send it back?"  All I can say to any of this and the way the VA handles the claims of Veterans in this country is WTF!!!  I hope no one is too offended by the use of those 3 letters, but I am just honestly at a loss when I realize the callousness of a department that is responsible for one of the largest areas of a legally binding contract between the U.S.Government and the Citizen that freely enters into the U.S. Military to serve their country for a set number of years.  The fact that if the Military member does not live up to their sworn voluntary obligation to the Government and illegally breaks that contract.  That military member is always held accountable!!! Yet the VA has for NUMEROUS YEARS violated their part of that contract in every way possible, including times when it has caused or been a leading cause of a Veterans fatality!!!  And could someone PLEASE tell me exactly what the consequences have been for the VA???  Because I still don't see too much of a change in the attitude of those who administratively serve Veterans!

    • 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...
