Why You Should Use An Attorney Before The VA


When it comes to acquiring the best representation for yourself, you may be asking which is the best route to take. For some, they will resort to the VA before hiring an attorney and for those who decide to hire an attorney initially, it pays off for them and they see the true benefits of hiring one and why it is so recommended nowadays.

One of the first reasons to hire an attorney is because of the fact that one is required if you are to appeal a denied initial claim. This is required by the Board of Veterans Appeals or BVA. That being said, since most of the time you will not win on your first claim and will need to appeal the denied claim, you might as well already have an attorney from the beginning since you will need one afterwards if you do not win initially. If you are to not appeal a denied claim in the allotted time of 60 days, you must start from the beginning and file a brand new claim.

Another reason it is so beneficial to have an attorney on your side is for documentation records and paperwork that is required. Our attorneys have years of experience with tracking down and helping find the correct medical paperwork and obtaining the perfect evidence you will need to win your case and receive those benefits you deserve. Somethings you will not be able to acquire on your own and these things are easily traceable by attorneys so, why not hire one?


If you are ever worried about the possible fees and costs of hiring attorneys, do not worry! Our attorneys do not get paid unless we win your case. If you are to win your disability claim and are granted the benefits which you are entitled to, attorney fees are 25% of your back pay or $6,000, whichever is lower. That said, if we do not win your case, you pay nothing. 

The benefits of hiring one of our attorneys is unmatched and no veteran should ever go into a disability claim without the proper representation! Help yourself and get an attorney.

Our attorneys are also on top of any legal changes or implementations that may occur along the way of your claim. Our team is very dedicated to each and every client we work with and we keep you notified on every step of the way. We have a constant stream of communication with our clients to help simplify the process as much as possible.

Statistics and surveys online show that claimants who use an attorney are almost twice as likely to have a successful claim versus those who decide not to use an attorney. Keeping that in mind with the fact that we only get paid if you have a successful claims case, truly shows there really is no reason not to hire an attorney. By all means you should be preparing and giving yourself the best chance possible at receiving these benefits in which you are entitled to. 

Attorneys will also be way more knowledgeable than you on other benefits you could be possibly eligible for and they can help fight for those additional monthly payments you could receive, depending on your scenario and condition.

One thing our team of attorneys is great at is dialing in on what you are missing or missed out on in your previous claims that failed to help you win your claim. We take pride in making sure we have as much evidence as we possibly can provide given your scenario to strengthen your chances of success.
