I began practicing Veterans Law in 2007. Shortly after the law changed to allow veterans to hire attorneys to appeal VA ratings decisions, I became one of the first attorneys to become accredited by the VA to represent veterans.
When I started advocating for veterans, there were no blogs covering Veterans Law. I created the wildly popular Veterans Law Blog®, teaching the law and procedure of VA claims and appeals to veterans, VSOs, agents, and attorneys alike. That blog, a subscription-based educational resource separate and distinct from this law firm, now reaches more than a quarter-million veterans every month.
Today, due to the success and popularity of the Veterans Law Blog® (a subscription-based educational resource separate and distinct from this law firm), a law firm seeking to represent veterans can not be taken seriously if it lacks a blog on veterans law and advocacy.
Today, there are other areas of veterans law that need attention, and the firm intends to "take point" in those areas.
This category will cover changes and updates in the law that flow from the decisions of the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. and VA rule-making.
The lawyer representing veterans faces unique challenges. This category will share how we are building a sustainable and profitable law firm that prioritizes the well-being of the attorney and support staff.
Like much of American history, the experiences of black veterans has been largely overlooked, hidden behind a curtain of racism that we all pretend does not exist.
In this category, we will elevate the voices and experiences of black veterans to shed light on and begin to remedy the systematic oppression of black veterans and communities.
