Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

Veterans Disability Claims

Recently there were almost one million backlogged claims. The VA has a duty to assist; but, it is very limited in its ability to develop claims. The attorney fee is only 20% of past due benefits. Retaining a VA accredited attorney who is experienced in navigating the system is the best plan.


Disability compensation is a monthly tax-free benefit paid to Veterans who are at least 10% disabled because of injuries or diseases that were incurred in or aggravated during active duty or active duty for training. A disability can apply to physical conditions, such as a chronic knee condition, as well as a mental health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). YOU MAY HAVE SEVERAL CONDITIONS THAT ORIGINATED FROM YOUR TIME IN THE SERVICE. LET US PROVE IT FOR YOU!

(TSGLI) Claims

Traumatic Servicemembers Group Life Insurance

Over ten years ago, I was contacted by a National Guard member who had been seriously injured during his deployment to Iraq. He had applied for his insurance benefits and been denied. I learned that this program was not properly paying benefits to our service members who have received traumatic injuries. The more I researched, the more dismayed I became over the way claims were being handled -and the fact that they were routinely denied without explanation. I successfully pursued this client’s case; and now we are representing many who have been denied benefits. If you would like to learn more about TSGLI Benefits, please visit the government TSGLI website. CLICK THE TSGLI TAB ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN.

The Missouri Supreme Court Rules say I have to do this. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements.  Past results afford no guarantee of future results-every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.  Although I work on a no-recovery-no-fee basis, the client may be responsible for costs and expenses. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations.  Also, the information on this website is not legal advice. I am providing general information about various types of claims and how I handle them.  Thanks
