If you were injured while serving in the military, you may be eligible for what is known as VA Service-Connected Disability Compensation. If your service made you seriously ill, you may also be eligible for disability compensation.

Tragically, many eligible veterans (and their surviving spouses, who may be eligible for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation) are denied the benefits they so justly deserve. Why? The Veterans Administration is currently processing nearly one million claims. In my opinion, the level of accuracy in processing these claims is both appalling and a national disgrace. Most claims are initially denied, even when the applicant is indeed eligible.

If you have been denied Service-Related Disability Compensation, I can appeal your claim and help you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

Given the complexity and ever-changing nature of the laws surrounding Disability Compensation, as well as the maze-like appeal process, it is important to work with an attorney who focuses on this area of the law. I am a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA) and have been an Accredited Attorney by the Veterans Administration since 2009. I am also one of the few Certified Elder Law attorneys in Massachusetts. .

Studies indicate that veterans represented by qualified attorneys are among the most likely to have their appeals granted by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) in Washington, DC. It is important to note that in every appeal, the BVA retains its own attorney. You owe it to yourself and your family to have an experienced attorney fighting on your behalf during the grueling appeal process.

Contact me as soon as possible to discuss your situation. I can quickly determine whether you are indeed eligible for Service-Connected Disability Compensation (or Dependency and Indemnity Compensation) despite the fact that your claim has been denied. Then, I will zealously represent you during every stage of the appeal process. You are not in this alone. I am here to assist you, and I am passionate about helping veterans receive all the benefits they deserve.
