If you received an unfavorable Board decision on your original appeal, you should give us a call. While you have a few options at this stage we recommend that you file an appeal with the CAVC.

You must file the appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims (CAVC) within 120 days of the mailing date of the Board’s decision. If you choose this option, we will first file a Notice of Appeal (NOA) with the Clerk of the Court of the CAVC.

Once we have filed your notice, you will receive a letter confirming that your appeal has been transferred to the CAVC. If you want to check the status of your claim, you may call 800-827-1000 or go to eBenefits.

If the CAVC denies your appeal, we can file another appeal until we get you the result you deserve.

Why do I need a lawyer for my appeal?

Once a case is filed in Court, the process becomes adversarial and the VA has attorneys to represent their side before the CAVC. The appeals process of a VA disability claim includes several stringent appeal filing deadlines. Unfortunately it is easy for a deadline to pass or to make a mistake that can jeopardize your entire case.

The veterans’ advocates at Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD can help you file your appeal and give you a strong chance to recover the disability benefits to which you are entitled. We have represented thousands of veterans in the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims to secure the benefits the VA denied.

Call Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD today.

At Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD, we are dedicated to providing quality legal services to disabled veterans who have made countless sacrifices to protect the United States. If the BVA has ruled unfavorably on your claim, contact us immediately at 401-331-1400.
