If you are paying a physical, mental and emotional price for having served your country, the Department of Veterans Affairs, or VA, is authorized, empowered and funded to provide help. But too often, the VA doesn’t provide the help you need. Your legitimate claim is denied or your appeal seems to have disappeared into a black hole. Where can you turn?
You can turn to attorney David Russotto, the VA Vigilante, who is committed to helping you get the justice you deserve. As an accredited Veterans Affairs attorney and former Navy JAG Corp Officer, Russotto realized that veterans needed a strong advocate when it came to battling the VA for their benefits — and he was more than up to the challenge. As a partner at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, Russotto established the VA Disability sector four years ago. It wasn’t long before his zealous advocacy earned him the nickname VA Vigilante, which he has proudly adopted. It is his belief that those who have already fought for our country shouldn’t also have to fight for the benefits they’re entitled to.
David Russotto began his legal career as defense counsel with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps at Naval Base Norfolk. He then became a Trial Counsel and Legal Services attorney at Naval Air Station Oceana. After attending Staff Judge Advocate School, Russotto worked as staff judge advocate at FCTCLANT Dam Neck in Virginia Beach, where he provided legal advice to the base commander. He entered private practice in 1991 and helped found Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban in 2000.

Thank to Mr. Spencer I was able to get my VA disability claim re-reviewed and given another chance to receive disability. By far he is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. So Veterans if you are looking for help with your VA disability claim I would suggest that you hire Macari, Russotto, Spencer, & Balaban. Thanks again for everything.
