Veterans Disability Benefits Appeals
Attorneys helping U.S. vets and their families across the country
You served your country. You were injured. You should receive benefits.

Who we help
- Veterans — Anyone who served in the active military, naval or air services, including the Coast Guard, who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable may be qualified. (Veterans with dishonorable discharges should first attempt to get a discharge upgrade before applying for VA benefits.)
- Surviving spouses — Spouses of active service members and veterans who died from service-related injuries may be qualified for benefits if they meet certain criteria.
- Surviving children — Surviving children of service members and veterans who are under age 18 (under age 23 for students) and who are unmarried may be qualified for benefits; certain helpless adult children also may be entitled to benefits.
Fighting for our U.S. veterans on a wide range of claims
Serving in the military is a 24-hour-a-day duty. That means that any type of injury, not just combat-related injuries, may qualify for VA disability benefits. Our firm has the experience to handle non-injury benefits appeals and those related to a wide array of injuries, from serious injuries and deaths to those that occur in everyday life. We seek:
- Service-connected disability compensation
- Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC dependent death benefits)
- Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU)
- Non-service-connected pension
- Compensation for injury/death caused by VA (1151 Claim)
- Special monthly compensation
- Agent Orange claims
We help ensure you receive compensation or disability pensions, medical care, mental health treatment, educational benefits, loan and housing help, cemetery and burial payments, and vocational rehabilitation.
We pride ourselves on being a valuable resource for our VA disability clients. We hope you will find useful our frequently asked questions about VA disability benefits and our resource links.
