We Know the Law. The laws and regulations that govern the VA are over 2,000 pages long. This doesn’t even include the court case decisions and various other additional rules. We are well versed in these laws and through continuing education stay current on constant changes in the law.

We write original and claim-specific legal briefs with legal arguments on why you should win.

We gather the evidence.

  1. We have an investigator to prove in-service incidents and gather evidence.
  2. We obtain witness statements/affidavits.
  3. We work with treating physicians/experts to obtain records and detailed reports if necessary.

  6. We are responsive. We regularly stay in touch with clients and return all calls within 24 hours if possible.
