ATTORNEY & FREE ADVICE WHICH IS THE BEST

Question

I don't post that often but when I see things going on which cant be correct

I will say this if you hire or try to hire an attorney they maybe take your case or 

maybe not. If they do, don't you ever disagree with his decisions about your claim

from the same u hired or what he files for you either you trust him or trust free advice which ever is best for you.

Attorneys get paid to win. VSO get paid either way from yours truly .  At least I can do a background check on my

attorney , but can you do the same for free advice ???

I disagree Porgee.  I did disagreed with my attorney whether I should pursue a disability of neuropathy.  I received service connection and a rating back ten years.  With a good attorney it is a working relationship.

Having an attorney can help greatly, especially in tough situations or on appeals.

When I was new here on Hadit around 10 years ago, I learned how to help myself from the members, articles, and forums. I also enlisted the aid of VSO's, too. When I filed an appeal, I contacted an attorney who went over my evidence and gave me guidance. I was going to retain them, but they said to wait and see how the appeal turned out. If I lost, I would have signed on.

You just have to keep in mind everyone's situation is different. Also, the attorney commercials you see on TV often include statement similar to, "The quality of representation by this attorney is not necessarily better than that of other attorneys." Attorneys are people and some may actually be better than others.

I understand .what is the best route for your claim but if you have an attorney 

let him or her do what u hired them for to win your claim that's all I did . Free advice is 

something you need to research for your self because all you hear is not correct. Attorneys 

credential are always listed. MY ADVICE OR ANYONE ELSE ON THIS FORUM, LEGAL ADVICE IS BETTER

THAN mines or yours because that's what he or she get paid for. I Will never tell u to disagree against 

what you was advice on by your lawyer, but just check where you get our info from.
