Veterans Affairs & Appeals

We Work with Veterans Nationwide

Veterans who have been injured during their service are entitled to receive disability benefits from the VA. If you are a veteran and your claim has been denied, or even if you just think that your disability rating is too low, call us and we will work to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve. Rely on our expertise and experience to assist you with your claim no matter where you are located.

Fisher & Associates P.C. has a national practice representing Veterans before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. While our main office is in Denver, CO, we accept cases nationwide and there is no requirement that your attorney live in your state.

Often times, claims are denied on simple technicalities, no matter how worthy your claim might be. As most veterans know, the VA is an enormous bureaucracy and filing a claim is often a long, complicated process that isn’t easily navigated for the first time.

How We Can Help

Our attorneys will guide your appeal through the lengthy claims process. We will deal with VA Regional Offices, the Board of Veterans Appeals and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. If it becomes necessary, we can even litigate your appeal all the way up to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals for your district.

The types of cases we handle include:

  • Service-connected disability compensation
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Severe Back Injuries
  • Compensation for injury or death that was caused by the VA, called a 1151 claim
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Non-service connected pension claims
  • Severe Heart Disease
  • Agent Orange Exposure
  • Dependency and Indemnity Compensation claims
  • Gulf-War Syndrome

The Three Elements of a Claim That We Help You Prove

  • There is a current disability.
  • The injury or disease event occurred while in the service or shortly after discharge.
  • There is a link between the current disability, and the in service event.

Who Do We Help?

  • Service members who were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable
  • Surviving Spouses. Dependency Indemnity Compensation (DIC) and Death Benefits
  • Surviving Children. DIC and Death Benefits are available.

Can You Afford To Hire a Lawyer To Help with Your Claim?

The short answer is yes, you can afford to hire our firm. We are paid on a contingent fee basis, which means you don’t pay us a penny for legal fees, unless we successfully win your claim. When we do win, the VA deducts a 20% lump sum from the retroactive compensation portion of your claim to pay the legal fees.
