Re: va disability

Because of the subject matter which precedes your question, I assume that you are referring to a VA benefit to which you might be entitled. Federal law prohibits a lawyer from charging a fee for preparing and asserting your claim. After you have lost, and are in the appellate stage, you may hire a lawyer (which may be too late, but that is the law). In the meanwhile, there should be veterans' service agences that can provide some help. The VA should have a list of those who can help.

Re: va disability

I would need more details to determine the status of the claim and to answer your question. Is the claim at a regional office, or has it been appealed to the Board of Veterans Appeals? I will be glad to check on it for you free of charge. Feel free to e-mail me with more details, like dates, where it is pending, and claim number(s) so I can get you an answer.

Thanks,

Jill Mitchell
