Why Hire a Disability Lawyer?

Guidance from Our Atlanta Veteran Disability Attorney

The simplest answer to the question, "Why hire a disability lawyer?" is this: it is effective. Is it fair? No. Is it right? Probably not. Is it necessary? Yes, it often is.

An Atlanta VA disability lawyer from Stevens & Sullivan, LLC has worked with the disabled exclusively for 30 years because it can be so frustrating and unjust to those in need to have to fight for their benefits.

We have learned how to deal with the complicated bureaucracy and we know how to get results using the system. We have helped thousands to obtain the benefits that they deserve. We have had people come to us when they were at their breaking point. We hate to see anyone go through this frustration, particularly our valued veterans. We encourage anyone applying for veteran's compensation to contact us first. We are not paid unless you choose to use our services and we win your case. If we don't win, you pay nothing.

Help for Successful Disability Application

For some, the process of applying and obtaining benefits is a smooth operation. For many it is not. Questions about the degree of one's disability and whether the injury or illness is service-connected can be answered differently by the VA than by the veteran. The calculations for the process can be complex. The paperwork and evidence must be assembled in a way that those reviewing your claim can understand it easily.

It is important to provide enough evidence to clearly show your need. If your claim is denied, we can evaluate it for you and determine why and establish what needs to be done for your appeal. We can help you to meet any and all deadlines. You need, and you deserve, a knowledgeable attorney on your side and fighting for your interests.

Contact us at your earliest convenience.
