About Me

I have focused my practice on representing Veterans who have been wrongly denied service-connected compensation by the Department of Veterans. My practice spans from filing original claims for compensation to representing veterans before the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

In addition to representing veterans directly, I present at seminars for advocates across the nation educating them on how to represent veterans before the VA to obtain service connected benefits. I serve as the Treasurer of the National Organizations of Veterans Advocates. I also have authored several several books on Veterans' service-connected benefits issues.
