I, personally, recommend that the claimant represent themselves, b/c no one cares about "your" claim as much as you!!!  I used the DAV once, sat in their rep's office, asking the VSO about the 38 CFR's, while staring at a book titled 38 CFR's, on his bookshelf and him asking me "what are those?"  BTW, to the best of my knowledge, the DAV still writes the guide for all the various service orgs to follow.  Altho, I used attys when I went to the CAVC twice.  Chisholm & Chisholm was the first, can't remember the second at this moment (Chris Attig turned me down) and both times each atty won a remand, w/the second atty winning remand and finally decided in my favor at the BVA by a Judge Alex Humphrey or Humphries. (I like to believe that he is the son of our Alex, who used to post here, before he passed away).  Sad part is I'd say most attys go for the first simple thing they can get, get paid by EAJA and then abandon the client.  In a way I can't blame them, they "are" in it for the money.
