Securing veterans benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be a long, intimidating battle. Don’t go it alone—partner with an attorney to guide you through the process and secure the benefits you deserve.
- Attorneys are trained in interpreting regulations and understanding case law.
The Veteran Benefit Group of Goodman Allen Donnelly is made up of attorneys that have dedicated their entire legal career to helping veterans. We know how regulations and case laws impact your individual case.
- Attorneys keep abreast of any changes in the laws.
If there is a change in law that will affect your case, we can analyze how that change affects your case and discuss any implications to your case with you.
- Attorneys are trained in identifying the issues that have prevented you from winning your case.
Many times we seen veterans submit the same evidence over and over, and are frustrated because they don’t understand why the evidence is not good enough. We can help you identify what information is missing.
- Attorneys can help collect missing evidence.
Evidence such as service records, medical opinions, and statements from family and friends are critical to a case. Attorneys can outline a timeline for gathering all of the necessary evidence and help remove obstacles to getting the benefits you are entitled to.
- Our attorneys have access to VA’s computer system.
With access to the VA’s computer system, we can see the current status of a case. This access allows our attorneys to be more up to date with milestones such as whether you received a decision or letter.
- Our attorneys can represent you at all stages of an appeal.
We can appeal to the regional, Board of Veterans Appeals, and, if necessary, appeal the case to the U.S. Court for Veterans Claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Whether your case has been recently denied by the regional, or the Board of Veterans Appeals, or even if you are already at the Court, our attorneys can step in at any point.
- Our law firm dedicates an attorney and case manager to each case.
Having team members dedicated to your case ensures continuity, and allows our firm to become very familiar with your case throughout the various stages of the legal process. By staying by your side from start to finish, we can continue building on the evidence without any fear of something getting lost or making you feel as if you are starting from scratch at every new stage.
- Our attorneys will not stop until we have secured all available benefits to you.
Because we are so familiar with the benefits and regulations offered by VA, we can determine whether you qualify for additional benefits which the VA has not offered you.
- Our attorneys work on a contingent fee basis.
Contingent fee basis means that we don’t get paid unless we secure retroactive benefits for you. This fee structure also means that you do not have any out-of-pocket expenses for legal fees or any up-front costs.
Whether you are thinking about filing a claim, or have received a denial from the VA, give us a call for a free consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
