Read about our amazing case victories.

Case Year : 2019
Contract Type : Pre-File Consultation
Case Background : Veteran never filed for VA compensation in the past. After a thorough review of the client's active duty medical file it was discovered the client sought mental health treatment two times while on active duty. The assigned attorney advised the client to file a claim for mental health.
Shortly after filing, client engaged in a exam preparation session with one of our attorneys. Shortly after the compensation exam our client was notified by the VA that the examining facility lost the exam report and they were ordering a new examination . The assigned attorney immediately reviewed the client's file and discovered the examination was uploaded and was highly favorable to the client. The attorney advised client not to attend the new exam as this could compromise the existing exam report. The attorney ultimately notified the VA that the initial report was in the client's file and they should immediately issue a decision using that report. The attorney further stressed to the VA that their client would refuse any further attempts for an additional exam.
Case Result : The VA issued a decision 3 weeks later awarding the client 100% for the mental claim! This resulted in a net tax-free increase of $3227.58 per month; $38,730.96 per year; and $387,309.60 every 10 years!
