Should I Get A Free Consultation About Veterans Benefits?

Does a Free Consultation Cost Me Anything

No.  There is absolutely no charge for this consultation.  In this situation, free means absolutely free.

How does the Free Consultation work?

Our consultation process involves working directly with one of our Veterans Disability Team Members. After speaking with our VA Intake specialist or filling out the Consultation Request on our website, we will send you a digital Intake Form via email that asks questions about your claim history. Once we receive the information you provide in your intake form, some follow up questions regarding your specific conditions may be asked and we may request some documents pertaining to your claim (Ratings Decisions, Notices of Disagreement, etc.) if applicable.

Some consultations may be reviewed rather quickly, but if your case is more complex the consultation process can take some time in order make sure we completely understand your situation. It is important that we are thorough in our consultation process in order to give you the best service possible. Once we are finished gathering information, one of our Veterans Disability Attorneys will review your case to see how we can best assist you with your VA claim.

Do I have to come into your office to have a free consultation?

No. The consultation with one of our Veterans  Disability Team Members can be done over the phone and via email.  We are happy to meet with you in person if you would like to schedule a time to come to our office to discuss your claim, but please be aware that we make our decision based on multiple factors that cannot be covered in an office visit.

Travis Studdard meets with a client about her workers' compensation caseHow Much Will It Cost If I Decide To Hire You As My Attorney?

Even if you do decide that you need to hire us after the free consultation, it still will not cost you anything unless we recover money for you.  This is because we handle veterans benefits cases on a contingency fee contract.  This is different than attorneys that work by the hour or require that you pay money up front, known as a retainer.

A contingency fee means you only pay us for the work that we do on your case if we get something for you.  If we do not recover money for you, then our work on your case is free as well.  It is not going to cost you any money up front to hire us.  If you decide to hire us, we will go over the contract with you and answer any questions that you have about this.

Are There Any Costs Other Than Attorney’s Fees?

The only small costs that might be incurred are the costs associated with your case.  This cost is not for the work we do on your case.  It is for the charges by other companies to get the information we need to pursue your case.

These charges might include getting copies of medical records, hiring experts, or other things.  We will sometimes go ahead and pay these costs for you while your case is going.

Generally, these costs are paid back to us when you receive your back due benefits.  However, you are technically still responsible for the costs even if we do not win your case.
