Why Should I Hire a VA-Certified Disability Attorney?
You Have Been Denied
Every single one of our clients has one thing in common–they were all denied by the VA. A denial is not the end of your claim. Don’t let the complicated VA disability benefits appeal process scare you. Appealing is difficult but having qualified legal professionals handle your claim can help ease your mind. Woods and Woods has filed thousands of VA benefits appeals.
You Have Tried VSOs
A large majority of our clients first used free veterans service organizations (VSOs). Our lawyers regularly work with veterans after they have worked with a veterans organization.
You Are Frustrated
The VA is a huge bureaucracy, and it is normal to feel frustrated. Having a VA-certified disability attorney who knows how to navigate the system can make it less painful. You’ll no longer have to talk to the VA about your claim. Instead, you’ll call your law firm, and we will handle the VA for you.
You Have a Complicated Claim
If you have a simple claim, using a free VSO might be a good idea. A VSO will be able to handle something simple like a tinnitus claim. However, if you are filing a more difficult claim, like Individual Unemployability benefits, we highly suggest you get an experienced VA-certified disability attorney. The more complicated your claim is, the better evidence you are going to need to be successful.
How a Certified VA Claims Lawyer Can Help
The way to win your claim is by collecting strong evidence and presenting it to the VA in a clear and concise manner. This is why experience plays a big part in claims. Your VA-certified disability attorney knows exactly what evidence you need.
You probably already know because the government is involved there is going to be a ton of paperwork. Our veterans claims lawyers will make sure all your paperwork is accurate and complete before submitting anything to the VA.
Finding Medical Experts
Medical evidence can make or break a claim. Don’t expect the VA to just approve your claim because you served our country honorably. They want evidence. Woods and Woods has a network of medical professionals we trust to get the evidence our clients need. We work with doctors who review medical records and write reports and work with psychologists and vocational experts who are trained in VA law.
Filing Appeals and Briefs
If you hire Woods and Woods, we file everything for your appeal. Woods and Woods has developed innovative case management strategies to correctly and efficiently file clients’ appeals. We have a department of case analysts who are dedicated to writing briefs and preparing documents, and our Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) attorneys have filed thousands upon thousands of appeals for veterans.
Researching VA Law
There are decades of legal cases and precedents that affect VA disability claims. We have spent years and years researching VA law. Many old cases are relevant to today’s veterans’ claims. Citing a law or legal case from 1987 could be a determining factor in your claim. That’s how hiring a qualified VA-certified disability attorney can make the difference.
