When No one else believed.
In 2018 I lost my sweet baby. I had a lawyer when it first started. He dropped us and said we didn't have a case. When I found Pardue. He didn't miss a beat. After a week, we had paper work to sign. Few told us good luck. The Army would never pay. I didnt take it to court. It was never about the money. After 1 1/2yrs on our case. We are done. Thanks to this amazing team. When No one else believed in our fight. They did.

Excellent for Medboard (MEB)
Going through a MEB was awful. The on-post team really had no idea what was going on. Chuck's been doing this for years and was the MEB lawyer while he was in the service. He knows what's going on and what to do next!

Awesome - Opened my Eyes.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Pardue at a NOVA conference in California. I'm a veteran and attorney myself but like many military folks, I approached the VA disability system (initially) with the assumption that the VA was doing the best they could to help veterans. I believed that my initial disability rating (despite injuries that ended my military career and six reconstructive post-deployment surgeries) was just par for the course - even if it didn't cover the monthly gas and electric bill. After all, I'd submitted all my documentation to the VA, met with VA doctors, and did everything the VA asked me to do. Because of that, I figured the VA's initial rating was about right - after all, I was luckier than many - still alive and still had my limbs. So I wasn't expecting much. Mr. Pardue opened my eyes to reality of the VA system. Although I was initially skeptical (and kind of a pain) everything he said proved true. Mr. Pardue and his team (Ryan, Patrick, and T.J.) filed a new claim and obtained a better result than I had imagined possible. Thank you so much Team Pardue!

VA Compensation Upgrade
chuck explained to me the process and the rights I have as a veteran that I would have never none. For instance I would never had known about a post service connected but now that he mentioned it, it made sense. Also exlplained in great detail on the process to get my VA filed quickly and any denial, all appeals will go through him. My decision came back in a very timely manner. A lot sooner than I expected and I am very satisfied with the decision I received. It was amazing. I would recommend Chuck and his team to many others whom may not no what they are entitled to. They are a blessing and I thank them from the bottom of my.

Professional Caring Team
At my first interview Mr Pardue heard my history and immeaditatly knew what to do. I couldn't believe he acted so fast. He scheduled an exam with Dr. T.J. Seiter who did a very thorough physical exam concerning all my issues.At that time he filled out 3 different forms called DBQ's. Then he reviewed that with me and discovered further information pertaining to my disabilities . I just couldn't believe how knowledgeable and caring He was to me as he was researching his V.A. manuals to further support my claim. . He also referred me to another Dr.,Dr Patrick Weichert who was also so caring and understanding and through his interview with me discovered further evidence to support and build upon my claim. I just can't say enough how surprised and relieved My wife and I were when we were awarded the full disability ! The entire team at the Chuck Pardue law firm were so very helpful on everything,,but especially Dr. T.J. Seiter. I've truly never met such a kind,,hard working ,compassionate man who truly cares about the Veteran,/client and works extra hard for you. God Bless them all and I highly recommend the Pardue Law Firm.

Absolutely Phenomenal VA Disability/Military Compensation Lawyer
To say the least, my experience with Military Disability and Compensation prior to getting out was abysmal . I was severely injured while serving and sustained many injuries requiring extensive surgeries to correct. After going through the medical board evaluation process multiple times and through numerous appeals I was left completely hopeless and defeated. Upon getting out, I was extremely hesitant to apply to the VA and receive compensation evaluations, as I assumed the process would be equally as strenuous, tedious, and defeating. After being recommended by a coworker to Mr. Pardue and Dr. Seiter I was still very apprehensive as I had little experience with lawyers and as most people are aware, the stereotypes surrounding injury law vary significantly, and aren't always inspiring. Mr. Pardue literally shattered all misconceptions and misgivings I had regarding not only lawyers, but the disability process in general. The nightmare of trudging through documents and praying you have the right code for whatever disability you think you may or may not have, and pouring through the onslaught of thousands of different disability codes became a dream come true through these exceptional individuals. Dr. Seiter and Mr. Pardue kept in constant contact and spent countless hours with me pinning down the right disabilities and right codes for each, answering all my questions thoroughly, and involving me in each step of the process, custom tailoring my claim to my experience enabling it for success. They were there from the inception of my new claim and afterwards with the submission of additional claims, and worked with me and my family ensuring the greatest level of understanding and knowledge was achieved by my family and I. I truly don't know what I would have done without their help, I owe them the world, as they have made the world of difference in our lives. If you have any apprehension about contacting these two, understandably as I did, they have my contact number and I encourage you to ask for it and contact me for my personal experience and recommendation. I would be more than happy to help any veteran receive help through these two incredible individuals. I have nothing but extolling praise for this legal team, if I could give 6/5 stars I would. The cost is trivial and negligible in the scheme of things, as the time you will save, the peace of mind, and the outcome of your claims will more than drastically offset any expense incurred. Please, I encourage any vet, at any stage of the claims process to do themselves a life changing favor and call them, at least for a consult. You'd be amazed at the difference they can make in not only your claim, but your lives.

Knowledgeable and Exceptional VA Disability Claim Support
Based on the VA disability claim support provided by Dr. Seiter at Chuck Pardue Law, I was able to secure a favorable rating from the VA for my disability claim. Dr. Seiter is very knowledgeable of the policies and procedures that govern filing VA claims and he is skilled at identifying and linking medical conditions to military service. Dr. Seiter handled my claim in a timely and constructive way. He took time to explain to me the things that I should target for a favorable decision and he prepared the required documents to support my claim. I highly recommend him and this law firm to any veteran that feels like they have been treated unjustly by the VA system or simply are not sure how to go about the VA claim process on their own.

My Case Exceeded all my expectations!!
It is my privilege to be offered a chance to praise the attributes of Attorney Chuck Pardue. He not only handled my complicated case very efficiently and with highest expertise but was kind, clear in answering any questions and expedited my case. He was very experienced, knowledgeable and ethical (No wonder He's respected and feared by his opponents!). He exceeded all my expectations getting quick positive results and justice for me. He had my best interest at heart. Words cannot express my gratitude towards attorney Chuck Pardue for all his hard work, efforts and dedication. Chuck Pardue and his team is smart, courteous and very professional. I highly recommend attorney Chuck Pardue for anyone/veteran in CSRA area who needs legal representation or looking for a high quality law firm. Call him! You'll see. Great lawyer who truly has a vested interest in the welfare of his clients!!!

The right Team for the job.
Both Chuck Pardue and TJ were extremely easy to work with. Everything was up front, all questions answered. They were a LOT less expensive than I thought they would be. Results were surprisingly quick, I was at 80% and they got me to 100% with just upping the percentages on existing disabilities within 2-3 months. I would, and have already, recommend this team to any veteran lost in the VA Disability quagmire.

Gets Results
I heard of Chuck Pardue and Dr. Seiter from another vet who had worked with them. This vet had received compensation back to 1970. I had already been through the claims and appeal processes and was skeptical that I would get a higher rating. I thought I knew how VA claims worked but it was like Mr. Pardue and Dr. Seiter wrote the VA book themselves. Their knowledge of the system was amazing. They secured an increase in my disability compensation and also back pay....all in two months from start to finish. I would recommend them to any veteran and would not hesitate a second to retain their services again. Big Thanks to you both!!

Excellent Advocate
Mr. Pardue has a tremendous understanding of the law. His experience and his dedication to clients are qualities that separate him from other attorneys the field. I recommend him to any veteran that is pursuing VA disability benefits or his many other practice areas.

VA claim success
I am client of Chuck Pardue and Dr. Seiter for my VA claim. They were well-versed in the VA claims process and knew all the ins and outs of the process. They were successful in a claim that has been going on for 17 years, and it only took 2 months, which is just amazing. They have really changed our lives for the better!

VA Disability
I've been out of the Navy for more than 10 years now. After getting my initial VA disability rating I decided to take a friends recommendation and go see Mr. Pardue and his Staff. This was by far one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Dr. Seiter who works for Chuck went through my medical history and submitted a new claim to the VA. In just 2 short months my decision came back and my VA rating went from 40% to 100%. What I found out was that I didn't understand exactly what I could claim. Dr. Seiter was able to wade through my medical history and use the "correct" VA terminology to get the VA rating I should have had 10 years ago. Mr. Pardue, Dr. Sieter, Thank you so much for helping me with this issue. It was an absolute pleasure, and I couldn't be happier. If you need someone to help you navigate the VA bureaucracy, do yourself a favor and go so see Mr. Pardue and his staff. I give Mr. Pardue highest recommendation!

Extremely Helpful
I just recently went through the worst time you could possibly imagine with the company I had purchased a vehicle from. They took my car, dragged my credit through the dirt, and told many lies all the while i made all payments on time and did everything i was contracted to do. I went Chuck Pardue, He was the most helpful person throughout the whole ordeal and i am so grateful for that. I honestly thought this company was going to get away with what they did to m, until i spoke with Chuck and needless to say they did NOT. He was able to help me settle my case and help me get justice. I would HIGHLY recommend Chuck Pardue.
