Do you know why the VA isn't satisfied with the evidence you've provided in your service-connection claim?

About Me 

The Attig Law Firm Will Change the Way Veterans experience the VA Claims Process.

 

One way that we will do that is by providing MORE Information, and MORE Power, in MORE Ways to MORE Veterans.

 

Chris's experience with county, state and federal governments taught him to navigate the tangled webs of government bureaucracy and inefficiency on behalf of his clients. As an attorney, Chris served as a Senior Trial Attorney with the Office of Chief Counsel for the I.R.S., where he practiced federal employment law and practiced as an MSPB attorney. He was selected to serve as a student law-clerk to Chief Justice Thomas R. Phillips of the Texas Supreme Court in 2002, and also served as a law clerk with the Harris County Attorney's Office in Houston from 2000-2001.

 

Chris served as a Captain in the United States Army from 1993-2004, at posts across the United States and the Republic of South Korea. He has been awarded the United States Army Commendation Medal, graduated Airborne School, attended Ranger school, and prior to leaving active duty, was invited to attend Special Forces qualification training.
