    I represent disabled Veterans who need benefits from the Veterans Administration. This includes pension and Aid & Attendance claims.

    I represent people who have filed a claim for Social Security Disability benefits.

    24 years

 

My practice focuses on helping individual clients with Veterans benefits and Social Security benefits. We also assist our clients with basic estate planning issues.

I am admitted in all courts in North Carolina as well as all three Federal District Courts in North Carolina. The Department of Veterans Affairs has accredited me as a representative and I am admitted to the Court of Veterans Appeals.

Over time I began to see that my clients with disabilities and veterans were not obtaining all of the benefits that they may be entitled to and that they were not putting plans in place to protect their families in the event that they become incapacitated or pass away. As a result, I began offering additional estate planning services to these clients.

She was a huge help
Elisabeth helped me get my SSI and SSD. She was very friendly and professional and I can add she is service dog friendly and called the place our hearing took place for me to let them know I had one. Which made things that much easier. I felt like she actually cared about her clients and I'm glad she was there to help me with my long battle.

THANK YOU!!!
after numerous calls to other attorney's this law firm was the only one to take my sons ssi case. We spoke on the phone and she made me feel better and also listened to me and helped me a lot. Regardless of what the outcome is I would recommend this law firm. They seem genuine and so far I'm very impressed. Thank you so much!

Great Lawyer
Ms. Lunn was great! Her assistant was very nice and they both answered all of my questions. I could call as many times as I wanted and they always talked to me and let me know what was happening with my case.

She will ruin you
I wasted 7 months of waiting for Elizebeth to do anything. I contacted Elizabeth back on October 2023 in reference to having her take my case so I could apply for TDIU. During that she recommended that I should apply for a multitude of claims in what appeared to be shot gunning in hopes that something will hit instead of carefully calculating my claim. During my time I could hardly get in touch with her and much of her communication was sparce at best. When attempting to contact her, I could never call, and I had to leave messages with her voice answering service. When I did leave these messages, she would never return them. There was one time she even forgot who I was. If I asked questions, she would give me only generic answers to questions that I already knew not answering the actual questions that I had asked. When I would email her, it would take days for her to respond, and I would sometimes have to send follow up emails for her to respond. When my claims were filed, she applied for an increase in two claims that I had reservation about in that I knew it was almost a certainty that they would be denied. When asked why they were applied for, she stated that this was necessary to be applied for my TDIU. I asked would the VA reduced my already current rating to which she said it would be very very unlikely. Well, I got my letter today and guess what? My rating was reduced! In something that she stated wouldn't be a problem. Along with this, I asked her about a claim that was approved through her and the compensation that would come with it and she stated that would take the VA a little for it to process and then I would receive it. However, when the payment never came, I contacted the VA to ask why, and they stated that my claim never went over my current rating to begin with. SOMETHING THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN! Lastly, I began looking at many of the documents that had been sent to the VA via evidence and began noticing that much of the evidence that the VA had asked for had been submitted by me and not her. Many of the evidence records to support my claim had only been submitted by me and not her, and I had noticed that she only submitted paperwork to begin the claim. No other documents had been submitted by her unless I confronted her about it. When I confronted her about all these issues, and demanded her to give me periodic updates, she withdrew as my attorney and stated she was not the attorney for me but still demanded the VA pay her for the " work" she did. In closing, it appears that Miss Lunn is not the attorney for anyone. She talks a good game, but when it comes to the complete dynamics of the VA, she knows nothing, If you noticed that many of these reviews on here are from 2016 and 2017 and not up to date. She will take your money and she will do barely any work to accomplish it. You will have to do it. I literally could have done this myself with no jeopardy of having my rating reduced. Now I have to deal with that issue because of her. Save yourself some time, DO NOT HIRE HER!
