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.

What is definition of a veteran for VA disability?

"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.
