I am Karl Kazmierczak, Esq. and I have been helping
people get veteran's benefits for years. Often, veterans have a difficult time finding help with their VA disability
claims because of a bar on hiring lawyers early in the process. I will be providing information on this site for free
and believe it should answer many of the questions many of you have. If you would like help with your claim for disability
benefits please consider us and visit my Law Firm's website.

VA News And Updates
In February 2019 the VA officially
switched to the Appeals Modernization Act. The act first passed in August 2017. So if you receive a decision after February
2019 you will automatically be placed into the new appeals process. The new appeals process is completely different from the
old appeals process and has totally new and unique options for you to appeal your unfavorable VA decision. If you are familiar
with the Rapid Appeals Modernization Process (RAMP) then you already know about the new appeal options. If you are not familiar
with the new appeals process check out our quick guide on the new process for more details.
you have any questions not answered here or if you want a free consultation send me an e-mail. Please be as detailed as you can, and if you would like me to call you send your phone number. I help Veterans
in all states.
What is definition of a veteran for VA
"A person who served in the active military, naval or air services, and who was discharged
or released under conditions other than dishonorable." 38 U.S.C. $ 101(2), 38 CFR $ 3.1(d) 2006.
This site will address
the basics of veterans disability claims first and as time goes on I will add more advanced concepts that I think would be
helpful. So make sure to book mark this site and come back often. The first thing you should know is that these
claims can take a very long time sometimes taking years to get the results you are trying to achieve. I get e-mails
from many veterans completely frustrated with the process. The best thing you can do is become as knowledgeable as you
can and seek assistance with your claim if you feel you need to.
I will soon be adding more content
to this website so make sure to check back over the next few weeks. I am attending a conference on veterans disability
this month and will report back anything I think may be of interest to you.
