    Travis Studdard is an attorney representing military veterans and their dependents in VA disability compensation and pension claims before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He is VA-accredited and able to represent veterans throughout the Southeast and nationwide on a variety of disabilities, including PTSD, Agent Orange presumptive diseases, Temporary Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU), and a variety of other service-connected disabilities.

  2. Workers compensation
    20%
    Travis Studdard is an experienced workers' compensation attorney who only represents injured workers, not insurance companies. He handles all types of injuries with a special focus on litigating catastrophic cases for permanently, totally disabled clients.

I love helping people get the information they need to tackle their individual legal situation.  I focus my practice on workers' compensation and veterans disability law, so there are similarities from case to case.  But, I know that each person's case is different and important because so much is at stake.  Our firm and I are committed to guiding clients through their cases to achieve the best results possible.  Check out our free resources on our website to learn more about the type of case you have and let us know if you would like our help.

Of particular interest to me are catastrophic workers' compensation claims and TDIU (or "total disability based on individual unemployability") claims in veterans disability.  I have years of experience and contacts within the expert witness community to prove these cases and successfully attain benefits for clients who are disabled from regular employment.  In the VA realm, I also enjoy helping clients with their PTSD, herbicide exposure ("Agent Orange"), and other disabilities.  

I received my undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Georgia as a First Honor Graduate. I also received my law degree with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2004. I teamed up with my current law partner after graduation and have devoted my career to representing injured workers and veterans in Workers’ Compensation and Veterans Benefits claims.  I am accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs to represent veterans in veterans benefit claims.

I am a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association, Workers’ Compensation Claimants’ Lawyers, and the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar of Georgia. I am a founding board member of the West Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association and have previously served as past President of that group.  In 2014, I was recognized by The National Trial Lawyers in their "Top 100 Trial Lawyers."

Changed my life, and amazing to work with
Let me cut to the chase, if you're a veteran needing help navigating your appeals, doing it on your own is not a great idea. many of my veteran friends and colleagues have given up on the process because of how confusing and daunting the task is. I was the same way until I contacted Perkins Studdard. They filed the paperwork and got everything moving; which, on its own, would have taken me months with navigating the panic and complexities of doing it. they helped me understand what my exams would be like which alleviated a lot of the stress that comes with this process. They were also fast to respond either through email or by phone with any questions I had. Even when I had to ask the same things over and over, they were patient with me and made sure I fully understood what I was worrying about. I've heard from other veterans who have used Perkins Studdard, and have heard zero negatives, which is not the case with all appeals lawyers who are just trying to funnel you through as fast and un-thorough as possible. Bottom line, if you want your absolute best chance at filling appeals through the VA, this is where you need to be.

The best Attorney I could have ever hoped for!
Travis and his team got to work quick, and worked diligently all the while talking with me and explaining to me the steps in my case for my VA Benefits. They went above and beyond the call of duty and got me what I have fought for with the VA for years…decades really. I can never thank Travis and everyone else at Perkins Studdard LLC for helping me when I had so little hope left. Thank you all so much!

Outstanding law firm for veterans seeking help with a disability claim. Travis listened and answered my questions. He successfully won my appeal for maximum increase and benefits within 6 months. This law firm is trustworthy and squared away, If you want it done correctly first time go, give them a call.

Very Successful Relationship
Travis Studdard, and his staff, were able to help me navigate the mysteries of the VA system. Their innovative work brought about the best rating decision that I could have imagined. Other firms that I had contacted said they didn't think they could help me. He is a Christian man and can be trusted.

A lawyer that truly cares about Veterans
I would like to say that it was refreshing and reassuring to have Travis represent me during my VA case. Being older, not computer savvy, Travis and his secretary Jessica did an outstanding job helping me through the process. They went out of their way to guide me through all the steps necessary. Travis is very knowledgeable and confident in what he does and that is obvious. He helped me complete all the documents and paperwork that were needed. Travis and Jessica kept in constant contact with me, and kept me informed through the entire process. If I ever had questions they were very quick to respond. I am very satisfied with their practice and can say with great confidence that I would highly recommend them!

Very Satisfied Customer
Mr. Studdard's Youtube videos were an inspiration for me to build a strong case. When the VA denied my claim without even really considering it - the denial came back VERY quickly - I sought Mr. Studdard out for my appeal. One year later (because of the VA process), the VA approved my appeal. I'm very grateful to Mr. Studdard's office for their work! Don't be fooled by his humble nature or his thoughtful delivery. Mr. Studdard knows his stuff. To take a case on contingency like that, if he takes your case, the odds are definitely in your favor. Thank you Mr. Studdard, Jessica, and everyone who worked on my appeal!

THANK YOU!!!!
I had a very complicated disability case that went back to the mid 90's. I had been out of the military for 16 years. I tried on my own along with help of local VA reps and was denied several times by the VA. I reached out to Travis Studdard and his staff based on doing research of who could help me. They immediately contacted me and the communication line was open. I spoke to them constantly, the staff is absolutely great and very knowledgeable. If I ever had a question, I could call or email and always had the answer right away. Bottom line.... This firm, Travis and his staff KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. In the end we just won my case and I have been finally awarded the disability that I deserved all along. If it wasn't for Travis Studdard and his staff, I would have given up after three denials. Thank you all for what you do Perkins Studdard LLC!! If your reading this and on the fence about who to retain to help you. look no further!! JAC (South Carolina)

Awesome
First off I want to say that I greatly appreciate Mr. Studdard, Mrs. Reeves, Mrs. Hyatt, and Mrs. Adair. They were truly a blessing from God. I lost almost all hope with my claim and they were able to help me. Now I would recommend them to anyone that needed the help. Truly wonderful people very down to earth. Please give them a shot if anything watch Mr. Studdards YouTube videos. They are professional and truly care about veterans.

Outstanding
Needed to appeal a VA disability rating. After some searching I found Perkins/Studdard law firm. A thorough questionnaire was sent to me. The appeal took a year. Every question was answered within one day of emailing them. The office staff was wonderful. They would check in to see how I was doing on occasion. I can't recommend them enough. They won my case even though I didn't really think I would win.

Travis is my hired Attorney for my VA Disability Compensation Claim issues. He already has been successful getting one of my ratings increased from 10% to 30% on an higher level review. He is almost ready to submit for an increase on one of my ratings and submit two initial claims. Travis really impressed me in his Youtube informative videos. Travis and his legal assistant have been nothing but, professional, courteous, caring and nothing but the BEST!! I Highly Recommend him and his Firm....

An Advocate for Veterans
Where do I begin? My experience with Perkins Studdard is an 11/10. From submitting my first intake form all the way to winning my VA Appeal the TEAM over at Perkins Studdard was there for me all the way! After being turned down by other VA advocates, Travis took my case and never sugared coated any of it! He was honest with me in his plan and execution leading all the way to the VA approving our request. The staff are very professional and very knowledgeable -- and it is like Travis himself was born to advocate for us veterans. I highly recommend reaching out to this firm and highly recommend working with Perkins Studdard. Good luck!

VA disability claim
I'm writing this review to let veterans know there is help. If you are frustrated, struggling and tired of dealing with the Department Of Veterans Affairs give Travis Studdard, at Perkins Studdard Law Firm a phone call. After years of frustrating, i finally reached out to Perkins Studdard Law Firm for a free consultation and I'm glad i did. I'm so grateful to Perkins Studdard and staff for taking my case and relieving my stress level. Attorney Travis Studdard and Paralegal Layla Reeves is very professional, treats me with respect and responds to me promptly. They have obtained my percentage increase already and are still working on my case. I highly recommend Perkins Studdard Law Firm for your compensation disability claim or other issues.

Persistence is a virtue at Perkins Studdard, LLC
Travis Studdard has appealed my VA rating for several years. We all know how difficult the SE Region can be. He and his paralegals have worked through many errors made by the VA and backed me up 100% at each turn. Due to his persistence for his client and knowledge of veterans' legal issues, the twists and turns between veterans and the VA in being fairly compensated, Travis Studdard won my appeal. I highly recommend Travis Studdard and the Perkins Studdard, LLC firm for any of your VA legal needs.

VA Appeal Success
I had almost given up on getting my sleep apnea covered by the VA after going through the veteran’s service organization process to no avail. I knew however that I had a claim that should be covered. Luckily I stumbled across an article that Mr. Studdard had written and decided to give his office a call. From the first second his team was attentive and informative and that carried forward through my process. Mr. Studdard was able to look at my claim and figure out the small details that had been missed in my previous claims and made a corrected appeal. The appeal was granted at the regional level. You never feel like a number when dealing with him and his team and I highly recommend them to any former service person that needs assistance through the VA process.

Fighting the VA for those that served
Travis and his team were professional, courteous and available to me at all times. They communicated with me about my case consistently and made sure that they were doing what was in my best interest, not just theirs. After years of fighting with the VA, they were able to get me a disability rating that forces the VA to acknowledge and treat my conditions as well as pay me the compensation I have been entitled to for years. I would recommend Travis and his team to any veteran who is fighting the VA system and getting nowhere. What they were able to do in a short time has been a life changer for me. I am ever grateful.

Best VA Disability and Compensation Lawyer
After being denied a service connected VA disability claim, I contacted Travis Studdard for representation during my appeal. He thoroughly understands the law and regulations of VA disability and compensation. Through his efforts, my appeal was approved and the result was a 50% service connected disability rating. Travis is a true professional and I recommend him to any veteran with a VA disability claim.

VA Representation at its finest!
After being fed up with the VA claims process, I did extensive research and found attorney. Words cannot express the level of expertise, knowledge and ability that Travis Studdard possesses. The intake process was very lengthy and thorough (which told me these were the right folks for the job). We took our time, gathered all the relevant evidence, statements etc... and submitted my claim January 1, 2017. My QTC exams were in the beginning of March and by the end of that same month I had my decision rendered. The VA found in our favor, in every aspect we filed for, increasing my rating to 100%! Travis and his staff not only exceeded our expectations but made you feel like a person and not just another file. He truly cares about their work with deserving veterans and is highly recommended to any vet needing representation. He is now my "go to guy" for all VA compensation and pension matters!
