Focus on Veterans Disability & ClaimsVeterans Rights
We offer representation for veterans facing denial of benefits for service related disabilities – including those resulting from exposure to toxic and carcinogenic substances.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veteran’s Claims is located in Washington D.C. My office represents residents of Pennsylvania in their appeals from denials of their service related claims.
Veterans and others entitled to Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits have the right to appeal denial of requested benefits. Types of claims frequently at issue include:
- Disability Compensation
- Education Benefits
- Unreimbursed/unapproved medical
There are several available levels of appeal and there are important time limits applicable to each level. It is advisable for claimants to consult with an experienced advocate or attorney when proceeding.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veteran’s Claims is the first available level of appeal to an entity which is not a part of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Instead, the Court is independent. Appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veteran’s Claims must be taken within 120 days of the date stamped on the prior decision (from the Board of Veterans Appeals).
Appeals from a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims are made to a Federal Appellate Court.
There are relatively few attorneys who are members of the specialized bar of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Our office is proud to represent veterans from Pennsylvania in these matters.
More information on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims may be found on the court’s website, which also posts written opinions of the court.
