Bad day at the court. Smh

Mr cue


I really need to vent.

Well I seen it coming when this new lawyer was put on my case.

Ok the record was serve to the lawyer yesterday.

I get a call I don't see any issue with the rating for the adjustment disorder.

You have tdiu and smc there is no need to fight for the 100 based on the adjustment.


Next he withdraw fromy case and I don't have my phone record.

My brief is do in 18 days 

I got to put a motion in for a 10 day extension do to this.

Told the pro Bono program need to send me the record an they have to be removed.

Call they tell me they are working on it.

But my 18 days is running.

This is why I did want to us this place.

They make you sign them on your case before they talk to the veteran on even see the record.

I am so mad it will get fix be I don't feel like go threw more issues.

I should of stuck to my guns.

Oh a the petition for extraordinary relief was rule as moot.

Because they made this decisions I am appeal to court.

New lawyer tell me u lose your case with the petition. Smh I didn't even have the time or patience to deal with him.

I don't even have a problem doing The brief in 10 days.

I no my case I no my record and understand where everything is in my record.

I just used it last year to get the court to.

Reverse the adjustment disorder.

An To set a side the effective dates for smc s and l that were granted by the board.

Also to get the remand for smc o and r and loss of use under smc benfits.

It's not a real problem I am just tried of all these road blocks.

Be I made this ok e by using the program when I no better.

Heh sir, Hang in there you got a lot of positives going on even though the lawyer was useless.  I hate when that happens, IMO a good lawyer is sometimes hard to find, all that I have had in my dealings with VA, Federals Workers Comp were, lets just say less than desirable and I'll leave it that.  

You know your case, you know your claims, you have a pretty good head on the shoulders, and you have at least it appears you very much have your wits about you still.  Hang in there.  You can do this.  The law and regulations will back you and you have the medical evidence to reaffirm your eligibility for benefits. You know your records inside and out.  I know that it is difficult but stay your course and good hunting.  Breathe.

You sure are tell the Truth.

One box from 2001 fight for tdiu 

One box from 2012 fight for 8 year retro extra schedulers.

I have a disk from last year fight at the court that got all this remand.

Lol  so yea it is not a problem for me to look a add the rba pages.

Record of the agency pages to my. Brief.

I would like to point out the court is about law not how the evidence was used.

I will post my brief when I get done with it to show how I do it.

And it seem to work.

You are correct, there is that BIG difference, at the CAVC it is all about the law, the BVA is to make sure the VA interprets the law and the VA well lets flip a coin, shall we on what they do.  I'm recalling I think I had it explained similarly by AskNOD, I'll have to look back at some conversations or maybe it was in his book, I really can't recall.   Either way your statements are right on point.  

Geesh I hope I don't have to go that route because I am about spent but reading about folks that do pro se at the CAVC man, for me it lites the fire again when I think mine is about to go out.

Yes it is a job itself but to tell the truth I enjoy it a little. Smh crazy

I don't like that the veterans affairs can just blow off the law until you get to the court.

But by the time I get to the court I understand the in and out for my cases tho.

When I had the pending appeal in appeal status from 1993. 2004

Everbody tho I was crazy even lawyers.

But I won 8 years tdiu retro and the court let the va stage rated me 1993-2001 40%

Could of fought a dro decision is a appeal decision so when I was granted 60% by the dro 2001 it made the pending appeal final from 1993.

There is no stage rating the law.


But I was stress out by then I let it go. I got the extra schedulers tdiu pt rating. From 1993-2001 it was over.

Well I never understood that there were smc benfits to address back than.

Hadit show me what smc benfits are. I apply because they were never inferred in my 25 year history and record.

The va lose it mine.

They granted smc benfits but effective only from the time I apply 2018.


And the fight was on lol

If I get the telephone conference this can be over this month.

If not it will be over in like 4 months.

I am pushing for the month lol.

Crazy part I have 3 different va lawyers on my case an not one will speak to me. Lol.

A veteran get no commcation with anyone through the whole claim process.

A veteran now has no commcation with the board anymore.

An if the court don't order the telephone conference for pro se veterans they can't communicate with the lawyer on there case.

I can not wait to come out of this system and relax.

Because it is only getting harder on.the veteran.

My opinion.

Had to vent why I take a break from doing these briefs and summary of the issues I would like addressed in the telephone conference.

Last the court and pro Bono program pick a lawyer to handle the cavc telephone conference.

But from what I understand they address my summary of the issues.

New program. I will let everyone no how it go.

O yea I did the motion for reconsideration fo my petition for extraordinary relief today.

I might be fighting my first case at the federal court soon. Lol 

I will be a lawyer when I am finish with all this.

3 cavc appeal under my belt all remand.

Working on 3 more smh

An next a federal court case 

I need a life after all this ok I am done lol

I went to the Court after being in VARO and BVA for a TDIU retro claim going back to 1972.  I had good lawyers and I still lost so you did good.  I don't have much faith in the Court especially on a CUE.  My claim was so obvious but with all the technical BS they got over on me.  I was in the position of trying to prove a negative.  I was in position of trying to show VA did not consider all my evidence back in 1973.  It was impossible as I found out.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
