The VA approved my unemployable status and I am now receiving 100% VA Compensation. This would not have been possible without your guidance and expertise. I am truly grateful to you and your staff for making this possible. Without your help I would still be bogged down in the prodigious amount of paperwork that the VA is so famous for. If I can be of any assistance to you please don’t hesitate to ask.

Dave and I want to thank everyone at Legal Help for Veterans for the wonderful work you do for the veterans. If it wasn’t for your team, Dave would never have received his disability. I can’t tell you how many times he went to Boston only to be denied over and over. Thank God we found out about you.
