The only thing we do is help veterans and their families get the veterans disability benefits and other benefits they deserve. That’s it.
Why do you need a lawyer?
Below are things we know and do.
- Having representation increases your chances of winning according to the Board of Veteran’s Appeals 2012 Annual Report.
- We know the law: the VA’s regulations are over 2,000 pages.
- We have investigators to find records.
- We have private medical doctors and psychologists who can point out mistakes by the VA’s doctors in claims.
- We write legal briefs arguing why you are entitled to benefits.
- We obtain affidavits from witnesses to bolster claims.
Why do you need us? Questions you should ask when looking for a lawyer.
First, ask them if they are certified by the VA to be allowed to represent veterans like we are.
Second, ask any lawyers how long they have they been doing veterans disability work? We’ve been doing it for nearly twenty years.
Third, ask them about their results then compare them to our Recent Victories.
Fourth, ask them if they train other lawyers and agents how to win cases by giving lectures and presentations at various organizations like we do. We have presented to a variety of organizations on a number of veterans disability topics all around the country.
Fifth, ask them if they are leaders in veterans law. We are leaders in the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), an national organization of lawyers and agents advancing the cause of veterans benefits and training lawyers and agents. One of our founders, Wade Bosley, is a past president on NOVA, and is currently the Chairmen of the Ethics Commmittee. Ralph Bratch currently serves on the NOVA Board of Directors and is Chairman of the Seminar Committee. Andrew Rutz serves as Chairman Regulations Committee and Daniel Smith serves on the Appeals Committee.
Sixth, ask them about any awards or recognition they have received related to veterans work. One of our founders, Wade Bosley was honored with the prestigious Service Award by PTSD Vets Inc. Another one of our founders, Ralph Bratch, has been recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America ® by his peers in the publication of the same name. Furthermore, Bratch and Andrew Rutz, have been honored recognized for their pro bono legal services to the Center for Veterans Advancement. It is also very common for veteran service representatives, doctors, psychologists, counselors, and veteran service organizations to recommend our legal services to veterans in need.
