Military Criminal Defense Lawyer
Veterans Administration Appeals
Accessing VA benefits is often a crucial factor in allowing our honored
veterans the opportunity to build the bright future that they richly deserve.
When you apply to the VA for benefits, the regional office will send you
a decision known as a ratings decision. Unfortunately, the ratings decision
may not always be favorable.
If you feel that you have been unfairly denied benefits, it is very important
that you contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. The laws regarding
military personnel and veterans can differ from civilian laws and you
need a law firm that is well-versed veteran's administration appeals.
The Federal Practice Group Worldwide Service is very knowledgeable and
accomplished in veterans' affairs cases and understands the timelines
involved as well as what is needed to launch a successful appeal.
Steps in the Veterans Appeals Process
The first step in appealing a VA decision is to file a Notice of Disagreement
that allows you to request a personal hearing and another review of your
case by a decision review officer. An attorney from the firm can tenaciously
represent you at your hearing. One of their accomplished military criminal
lawyers may be able to assist you in successfully appealing a decision
and receiving your full level of available benefits.
Following the hearing, the decision review officer will issue a statement
of case, or SOC. A seasoned attorney from the firm will work closely with
you to evaluate the SOC pertaining to your case to determine your options.
You have the opportunity to present further evidence to your SOC. If your
claim is still denied, you have 60 days to appeal to the BVA, Board of
Veterans Appeals, where you have the right to another hearing. If the
BVA denies your claim, you can still appeal to the United States Court
of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The firm is determined to aggressively
fight for the rights of our clients throughout the process.
