    employment 2.jpeg

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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
