Firm Overview

Why Hire a Veterans Disability Lawyer?

VA Disability Law is a very complicated and complex area of law. Prior to 2006, veterans were not allowed to hire attorneys to represent them in the Regional Office and the BVA. In 2006, Congress recognized that veterans should have the right to hire legal presentation in the area of veteran's disability claims. Hiring an attorney to represent you in a VA appeal process allows you a better opportunity to present a well-developed claim to support your case. We do not rely upon the VA to develop the evidence to support your claim. We use medical evidence and professional to ensure that each and every part of your claim submitted by you meets the standard of proof required by the BVA and CAVC.

WE DO NOT GET PAID UNLESS YOU GET PAID. DON'T STRUGGLE WITH YOUR CLAIMS ALONE. WE KNOW THE PROCESS. WE KNOW THE LAWS AND WE WANT TO HELP YOU OBTAIN THE BENEFITS YOU DESERVE. CALL US TODAY AT (614) 781-1400 FOR A FREE CONSULTATION.
