How is she going to get paid? That is the main question. Is this coming out of your pocket? The good news is that if she is going to get paid via the VA or a percentage of an award then it bodes well for your chances since lawyer don't take cases they can't win unless you are paying them out of your pocket.

Dear Cheif

Good work. Now you got real representaton. Better to pay an atty fee now than 20 years of denials without back pay or hireing a lawyer latter and having to pay all that retro pay to the lawyer. Once you win your case your comp is free and clear with a lawyer. Without a lawyer, Well as she stated. "How could they have denied your claim" Well they did and they will unless forced to follow the law.

In my experience with a few vets with lawyers at the CAVC- if they win the case, it goes back to the RO for actual award and retro and at that time the VA withholds the lawyers fee and gives the vet time to respond to the withheld amount.

I wish they would decide on a fee agreement case I helped with.

The VA has 5 conditions for payment and the vet's lawyer did not satisfy all conditions so we filed a NOD on the fee decision and pointed out exactly why the fee VA wanted to pay was wrong per VA case law and regs- which we attached.

Have you searched at CAVC for any of Ms. Mitchell's work there?

    • 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.

    • 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.
