How to Find the Right Veterans Disability Lawyer for Your Case

As a general piece of advice, you should only choose a VA-certified veterans disability lawyer who can provide you with top-level legal representation. At the same time, you should always consider the benefits of acquiring an attorney who will fully represent your interests. To better help in your search finding a veterans disability lawyer, there are two questions you should always ask, including:

  1. Is the veterans disability attorney VA-certified?

⁃ At Herren Law, Houston veterans disability attorney Bill Herren is VA-accredited with accreditation number 9806 and POA Code 48G. Attorney Herren is also admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).

2. How long has the attorney been practicing veterans law?

⁃ Attorney William Herren has over 30 years of experience, and we’ve helped over 4000 people with their disability claims, including veterans disability claims.

In addition to these questions, you should make sure that your attorney will help you get the earliest effective date possible for benefits. Your attorney should also help you get the highest possible rating for your disability. Lastly, veterans disability law is quite broad, and it’s important to have an attorney experienced in a wide variety of claims. For instance, at Herren Law, we can help veterans with the following military-related injuries, including but not limited to:

This list is not all-inclusive, and keep in mind that if you don’t see your condition here, you may still qualify for benefits. Call Herren Law in Houston to see if you have a case.

When to Call Your VA-Certified Veterans Disability Lawyer

You can acquire a veterans disability lawyer at any point in the claims process, whether you’re organizing the documentation or appealing a denial. On average, about 70% of veterans disability claims are denied, and so it’s likely that you may need to appeal that denial with an experienced attorney at your side (not mandatory, but highly advised). Furthermore, although we at Herren Law are located right in Houston, we work at a federal level and can represent clients from all over the United States.

How Much Might a Veterans Disability Lawyer Cost

One of the first questions that we hear from potential clients is, “How much will a veterans disability lawyer cost me to represent my case.” Well, attorney William Herren works on a contingency basis, meaning that you won’t owe a thing unless we win your case. Furthermore, attorney fees for representing a veteran before VA, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and Court are determined by law (see 38 U.S.C. § 5904 and 38 C.F.R. § 14.636). Additionally, all agreements for the payment of fees for attorneys must be in writing and signed by both the claimant and the attorney.
