Our Lawyers Understand the Importance of Securing VA Disability Benefits
McKeown Law is a nationwide veterans’ disability law firm. As veterans themselves—and as former U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) employees—founding partners Andrew J. McKeown and Fred F. Oeldeman are intimately familiar with the challenges veterans face when they suffer a life-altering injury or illness during their military service.
If you need to file for VA benefits, you need an experienced advocate on your side. The filing process isn’t easy, and while the government tries to make good on its promise to compensate disabled veterans, it receives an extraordinary volume of claims. Andrew and Fred help veterans navigate the process as efficiently as possible, cut through the red tape, and avoid mistakes that could lead to a delay or denial of benefits.

We Have Experience On Both Sides
As former VA employees with over a decade of combined experience deciding VA compensation claims, Andrew and Fred have gained extensive knowledge of how the VA disability compensation process works and what goes into making a successful claim for disability benefits.

Why should you choose McKeown Law for your VA disability claim? While we could tell you what we think, we prefer to let our clients speak for themselves. Here are just a few examples of our numerous five-star reviews:
“I filed my claim twice with the VA, and my claim was lost twice. After that, I contacted Andrew and told him my problems I was having navigating the VA claim process. . . . I ended up with a much higher rating thanks to Andrew than I could have ever done on my own. . . . My back pay was way higher than the small fee [McKeown Law] asked for. Now I [am] getting compensated more monthly for the rest of my life.”
“Andrew filed material to the VA to increase my disability. I had a 30% disability. He was able to get it increased to 100 %. You can’t get any better than that!”
“Andrew is a top-notch lawyer and human being who truly cares for his clients. No matter how busy he is he makes time to talk to you like you’re his only client. What he did representing me was something unmatched and the result was something I could never have . . . achieved without his representation.”
