Excelente Service
I hired Mr. Trieschmann with no hopes, as a last resort. In less than a year he won my case and now I have economical stability. The staff represents among the highest levels of customer service I have experienced. Information was accurate, responses to queries were turned around very fast. Answers were clear and where necessary detailed. Miss Torres was very helpful and answered all my questions concerning my case she is knowledgeable, great personality. Would highly recommend Veteran Legal.

I started out at 10% and now I am at 80% If it wasn't for Lawyer Trieschmann There would have been no way that I could have reached that percentage. I recommended anyone that has tried to get a percentage from the VA and failed to please contact Lawyer James Trieschmann

Professional
From the initial consult until the end of it the entire legal team was amazing. Every time I called or emailed, they would get back to me in a timely manner. Nothing negative that I could mention. I only wish I knew about them before. Best money I have spent. The team got me from 30 to 100 percent in less then a year. They were 2 for 2 with my appeals. They also going through my claim one last time to make sure that I received all of the retro pay that I am intitled too.

He never wavered the entire 8 years
My review would be the same regardless of what was the outcome. I've been working with Mr T for 8 years and from the VCP, to the present. He was always there and answered every question, everytime regardless of the working platform. And he was the first attorney I've ever had representing me to immediately call and text the outcome. Thanks for everything and from the DC office down to Tampa town and home of Champions. Go Bolts

FIVE STAR VA Representative!
FIVE STARS for James Trieschmann and his Veteran Legal team! Mr. Trieschmann was my VA representative for several claims that culminated in a 100% T&P decision in my case. Veteran Legal made navigating the VA claims process EASY! I could not have done it on my own. They answered all of my questions in a timely, professional manner. My family and I thank YOU for YOUR service, Veteran Legal!

I hired James Shipp Trieschmann Jr. not knowing what the outcome would be. I had alot of people tell me getting an increase wasn't possible but in the end James Shipp Trieschmann Jr. got me what I deserved. I went from 50% to a 100%. After winning my case I got an email stating they were going to go back even farther to ensure I get all the entitlements that we're owed to me. I would definitely recommend!!

Others failed
I had many cases pending and they had failed time after time. A friend of mine told me about James Trieschmann and how he had asked him to represent him in his issues with being stuck at 80%. I decided to see what he could do for me. Withing a month or so Mr. Trieschman and his team found numerous mistakes that the VA had made with them ending up simply not considering the evidence correctly. It felt like I would never reach the 100% but FINALLY I was moved to 100% permanent disability. The battle is over, and I don't know if I would have made it without the expertise of James Trieschmann.

From 20% to 90%
This team brought me from 20% to 90% first try. I really was not sure if it was possible or not. They are working on the next round and I really have faith. Appeals take forever but that's the VA's fault. I want to thank all of the team members hard work.
