Why Do I Need an Attorney?

If you are a veteran, you know how the government works (or doesn’t). You may think your experience working for the government has prepared you for appealing your denial of VA benefits.

The decision to hire an attorney is all yours. But here is what the nationwide VA benefits attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, P.C. know from experience:

  • Appealing a claim denial takes a lot of time and energy and may be beyond what a disabled vet or his family can manage
  • It is difficult for an inexperienced individual to match the experience and resources of the VA
  • A great many factors — including a complete assessment of your injuries, financial situation and ability to work — must be assessed in order to obtain appropriate benefits
  • The potential for a successful appeal greatly increases for veterans who are represented by an experienced VA benefits attorney

You do not have to go through this long, frustrating process alone, wondering if you have done everything right.

We have been through this before. Our lawyers know what to expect and how to handle every question and curveball the VA throws at us.

We deal directly with the VA's regional offices around the country, the Board of Veterans Appeals and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Veterans Court), so you do not have to. When necessary, we pursue appeals all the way to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
