I have a attorney who has refused and ignored my requests for a copy of all my records. I told them I even would pay to have them copied. They refuse to respond. I suspect that they have missed a critical filing date, As after writing the VA requesting my disability claim dating back to 2007, and having received all documentation ever sent to them and all forms of written communication. CLEARLY Indicates that my Attorney of record failed to file the appropriate documentation "NOD" to secure my filing claim date. This has caused me to lose $2389.00 X 12mths X 6yrs = $172,000.00 loss of back pay and $70,000.00 in education moneys and over $50,000.00 in out of pocket medical payments, for a total hard losses of $292,000.00 PLUS, NOT INCLUDING PAIN AND SUFFERING FOR LACK OF MEDICAL CAREMy VA Disability claims attorney of record refuses to communicate anymore and is clearly stalling and has been actually deceiving me. I have sent my attorney of record several certified letters demanding proof of service and they now ignore me completely. Is it not malpractice to miss a filing date? I have emails and other documents to prove they have been actively lying to me for 3 yrs. I'm presently 70% VA service connected disabled and 100% Social security Disabled since 2007. #1: Am I wasting my time with them? #2: What is my Attorney’s (LEGAL) responsibility towards me as a client? #3: I have made a new claims with the VA for the same things I filed for back in 2007. Since I have no proof that my attorney ever filed the NOD.
