You Were There to Help Your Country; Now We Are Here to Help You
Applying for disability benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be a difficult and time-consuming process. However, an attorney can often make the VA decide your claim more quickly. Without legal counsel, you may find yourself at a severe disadvantage. VA laws and regulations are often difficult to understand and change frequently due to governmental regulations, but at Larson Larimer Schneider, P.C., our attorneys are well-versed in these laws and have a deep understanding of the current process.
Veterans who are denied disability benefits should always have legal counsel to file an appeal on their behalf. If you have applied for disability benefits and received a denial letter, we urge you to contact our firm right away to speak to one of our Denver veterans’ disability lawyers about your legal rights and options. You have the ability to appeal a denial and continue seeking the benefits you are owed.
How Much Does a Veterans’ Disability Lawyer Cost?
How much a lawyer can charge for their services depends on several factors. Attorneys may charge between 20% and 33½% for the handling of an appeal, but can charge no more than 33% for other related services. Additionally, in regards to veterans’ disability matters, most attorneys charge fees on a contingency basis; this means that the attorney only receives fees if the veteran wins the appeal and is awarded benefits. The VA typically pays these fees as a lump-sum payment.

Our experienced veterans’ disability benefits lawyers in Denver are committed to providing the strongest advocacy possible in their efforts to obtain the benefits you have earned and so rightfully deserve.

We represent veterans filing claims for:
- Disability compensation
- Dependents indemnity claims
- Traumatic brain injury
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Worsening existing disability
The VA is not known for efficiently or adequately processing disability claims. And, to make matters worse, the government has experienced a significant increase in applications for disability claims and appeals. Many of the claims involve complex disabilities, such as traumatic brain injuries, which require more evidence and longer processing periods. Additionally, it is not uncommon for returning combat veterans to experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, including anxiety and depression. Yet, getting VA approval for PTSD disability benefits is all too often a challenging, time-consuming process. The majority of these claims are denied initially because the applicant lacks proper evidence.
If you are having trouble obtaining disability and/or veterans’ health benefits, the process of gathering additional evidence is often overwhelming. Our attorneys are ready to handle the various aspects of your case—from gathering additional evidence to advocating on your behalf during claim denial appeal proceedings—so that you can simply focus on healing and moving forward.
