A veteran law attorney understands the process of obtaining your disability benefits and can be a guiding light to help navigate through your options. To hire or retain an attorney to assist you through this difficult time you must first have received a denial from the VA’s office. It is usually best practice to start researching local attorneys before you file, as there is a strong chance your application will be denied. This will allow you to make a quick decision and “hit the ground running” once you are legally able to acquire representation.
An attorney will file your letter of disagreement for you once the claim has been denied. This ensures that all forms will be filled out properly. Lawyers can also request a review of your claim by either your regional VA office or the Board of Veterans Appeals. Another key service an attorney can provide in the field of veteran law is to challenge the disability rating given to you by the VA.
This service extends beyond your benefits. An attorney will continue to fight for the disability rights of your spouse and dependents as well.
