If you need to appeal the VA’s rating decision, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals decision or need to go to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, you must remember that you have entered into an adversarial system. Before the Board and the Court, you must be able to identify the questions of law and fact that in your mind were handled erroneously by the VA in rejecting your claim. You will be requested to prepare a written argument. At that time, outline each error, and then discuss how the Regional Office’s error or the Board’s error in judgment prejudiced your claim. If the VA did not do what they were required to do for you, say so. At the end of your written argument, tell the VA or the Court, if necessary, what you want it to do. An effective written presentation and summary of your case is your case.

Veterans who appeal their claims to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims are permitted to have attorneys represent them before the Court in the same way the Department of Veterans Affairs maintains its own staff of attorneys to defend it against your claim. In order to obtain a favorable decision from the Court, you must be able to argue your case to the Court.

I have represented veterans before the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims since 1990. I also represent veterans at the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans Appeals. I am a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA) and have represented many veterans in this manner. Fees for legal services are entirely contingent upon receiving a favorable outcome.
These benefits are much more involved than Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability. These are either you receive the benefits or you do not; where-as Veteran’s Disability can be percentage based, ie. 30% disabled. Let us fight for your rights and the compensation you deserve. This can also include payment to spouses/dependents, housing assistance, and even to parents of deceased veterans.
