I first filed my claim through a veterans advocacy origination in 2003. Though most advocacy groups know how to get your claim started it has been my experience that they do not know all the intricacies of the laws that govern the VA claims process. After four and half years of frustration I met Katrina, she took over my case and pointed out all the things that were right with my case and all the things that were wrong with the case. In my case it was not finalized until December of 2014. The VA has publicly stated that the claims process is "non adversarial" and though it is less adversarial than say a criminal adjudication it has been my experience that is NOT non adversarial. As veterans we have to be our own advocate, we have to be patient and persistent and not give up. Katrina is a great attorney, very knowledgeable, but she can not do everything for us, if she advises you that your case needs some form of documentation such as a buddy letter or an impact statement from your family, you have to do everything in your power to get it. Katrina can't help us if we are not willing to help ourselves.
I thank all my fellow veterans for there service and I thank Katrina for standing up for rights all veterans. Somewhere along this journey I came to realize that Katrina dose not do this for the money, she does it for the gratitude she has for the sacrifices we veterans make. She is and will be a great advocate for you I highly recommend her. Thank you Katrina.
Desert Shield/Desert Storm veteran.

I am awaiting a NOD hearing and wanted expert advice on representation and how to present my case. I must have contacted a dozen legal firms that touted VA disability experience but in fact had little or none. Fortunately, one such firm provided Katrina's phone number. She called back within hours and spent the better part of an hour on the phone with me and coached me on every aspect of NOD hearings as well as other claim facts. She really peels the skin back on the VA onion and tells you how things work. By far she is the most knowledgeable person I have ever talked to about the VA claim process. If I need to advance my appeal beyond the hearing officer stage, I definitely will use Katrina to represent me.

Katrina Eagle is a dedicated and skilled attorney committed to helping veterans receive the benefit entitlements they are due. I have seen her compelling and effective conference presentations educating professionals, government officials, advocates and individual veterans alike. She is a tireless advocate with a strong track record of accomplishments with veteran agencies and coalitions.

I've known Katrina for a few years. Her advocacy on behalf of Veterans is some of the best and most tireless that I have seen in our community. She has accomplished results that help not just one or two Veterans, but that have helped the whole Veterans Community. I can say without reservation that I endorse Katrina, her tireless advocacy, and her fierce focus on achieving justice for her clients and due process and equal protection of the law for Veterans. Proud to know Katrina!

I have attended several of Ms. Eagle's speaking engagements over the past few years. Most recently, I attended her presentation at the fall NOSSCR conference. Ms. Eagle is a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker. Her committment to the legal profession, veteran's and their families is apparent in her presentation and years of dedication in this area of law. She has inspired me! I endorse this lawyer.
