If your family needs economic benefits for medical expenses or strictly to survive from day to day, then it’s clear that your Veterans’ benefits are incredibly important. Eligibility, as well as a rating percentage, are areas that can be subject to errors by the VA officials who, unfortunately, usually have little to no time to accurately assess your claims.
Do you feel as if your rating does not match your claim?
Or does your family need aid? That’s where our firm comes in.
Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban see it as our duty to help eligible Veterans and their family members to apply for the rating that they feel strongly mirrors their needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?
It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.
How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?
While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.
How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?
Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
