Veterans Advocates Group is a group of VA Accredited Agents that exclusively represents disabled veterans and their dependents seeking compensation/pension benefits. We represent veterans and their dependents at the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
As you may be aware, a new statute went into effect giving claimants the right to hire an attorney if a Notice of Disagreement is submitted after June 20, 2007. Prior to this new statute, claimants were not able to hire an attorney in the early administrative stage of their VA benefit claim, but only after a denial from the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
Securing legal representation as a disabled veteran early in the claim process will help ensure claims are fully developed “up front,” and force the VA to satisfy its legal duty to assist and comply with its own laws, regulations and procedures.
In addition, we assist with filing a new claim or reopening a claim at no charge.
