I have used this group for the past several years. They have helped me with my veterans benefits. Dawson Rouse and Heather Dropp are both excellent and very knowledgeable with veterans benefits. Heather is the paralegal handling my case and has been highly motivated and is a high speed individual. She is a go getter and always thinks several steps ahead for veterans she is helping. You won’t go wrong with choosing them to handle your veterans benefits.

The hits just keep on coming!!! I cannot express enough just how valuable and thorough the team of Dawson Rouse and Heather Dropp have been. Not only did they work tirelessly to ensure I received every bit of my 100% disability rating, but they went above and beyond to ensure I received every penny of compensation I was due, both presently, and backpay. My life has been changed all because I decided to call on MRSB to represent me after the VA had denied every single claim. I'm proud to not only call them my legal team, but also my family, which is EXACTLY what Heather and Dawson make you feel like. If there was an award for legal team of century, assuredly, Heather and Dawson would stand atop the podium!! DO NOT HESITATE!! CALL THEM AND LET THEM CHANGE YOUR LIFE TOO!!!

After I was denied disability for hip replacement I had just about given up. I saw an ad for MRSB and decided I had nothing to lose. After talking to Heather Dropp (MRSB Paralegal), I was more confident something could be done. It’s taken a while, but, because of the effort by Heather and Guy Rouse, I have 30% disability for my hip replacement and they found other service connected issues we are filing claims for as well. A bit of advice…before you give up on your denied claim, give MRSB a chance to look into it. They’re very knowledgeable and they work for veterans. MRSB will give you 100%.

Morgan and Dawson were very helpful and reassuring to my mother and I. They helped us through the appeal process and are still helping us. The firm truly cares about our veterans and the families. I highly recommend them to anyone needing help with a VA claim.

I had a VA disability claim in the system for two-plus years. Since I filed my claim, I experienced errors, mistakes, duplication of mistakes and many delays from the VA. I contacted MRS&B. Their team worked with me and supported me and kept me abreast of the events to bring my claim to closure. They exceeded my expectations for support. Thank You Kristen, Morgan and Dawson for your efforts. This was a great team effort!


VA Form 21-526EZ

If you or someone you love is a  Veteran with a current disability, VA Form 21-526EZ is one of the most important forms you need to know about in order to claim disability benefits.

Before you can proceed with filing VA Form 21-526EZ for disability benefits, one of the following three scenarios must be true:

• You sustained an illness or injury during active military service and can provide medical evidence linking your current disability to the duties you completed in the military.

• You had a diagnosed illness or injury before you entered military service and completing your duties made the condition worse.

• You have a current disability related to active duty, but you did not develop any complications from it after your honorable discharge. 

The Department of Veterans Affairs also uses this form to determine eligibility for the following benefits and programs:

• Automobile Allowance and Adaptive Equipment.

• Benefits Based on a Veteran’s Seriously Disabled Child.

• Compensation Claims Submitted Prior to Discharge.

• Disability Service Connection.

• Increased Disability Compensation.

• Individual Unemployability.

• Secondary Service Compensation.

• Special Monthly Compensation.

• Specially Adapted Housing and Special Home Adaptation.

• Temporary Total Disability Rating.

VA Form 21-526EZ is the appropriate one to use if you are seeking increased disability benefits or you disagree with an eligibility determination made by the VA more than 12 months ago.

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.
