VA Benefit Appeals
If your claim for VA disability benefits has been denied, your next step should be to hire one of our veterans attorneys. Unlike other law firms, we specialize in VA disability law to help veterans and their families.
Independent Medical Exams
Were you recently denied VA disability benefits due to an unfavorable medical exam? If so, our VA disability lawyers may recommend you get an independent medical exam (IME).
Surviving Spouses & Dependents
If you're the surviving spouse or dependent of a deceased veteran, you may be eligible for certain VA benefits. We understand that this is a difficult time for you, which is why we do everything we can to help you better understand your next steps.
Was your claim for VA disability benefits recently denied? If so, your first call should be to our lawyers for veterans benefits to learn if another medical opinion could help.
Other Claim Development
Was your claim for VA disability benefits wrongly denied? If so, we recommend filing an appeal with the help of one of our veteran disability lawyers. Our VA lawyers can also help if you were given a low disability rating that's not representative of your service-connected condition.
