Travis Studdard Admitted to U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims

Perkins Studdard is pleased to announce that attorney J. Travis Studdard has been approved to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).  Travis is a partner at Perkins Studdard, LLP and represents veterans and their families in veterans disability claims.  He is already accredited by Veterans Affairs to represent veterans and their dependents before the federal agency at the initial claims level and at the Board of Veterans Appeals.  While has has already been representing veterans at these levels, he sought admission to CAVC to expand his representation of current and future clients higher in the appeals process.

What is the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims?

The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims is not part of the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Instead, it is within the federal judiciary and specifically tasked as an appellate court to review veterans benefits decisions made by Veterans Affairs. President Reagan created the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims with his signing of the Veterans’ Judicial Review Act in 1988.  Prior to that, our nation’s veterans had no court of law to appeal the Government’s decisions on their claims. CAVC is one of the few federal courts created since the ratification of the United States Constitution, but the Court is also notable as one of the few courts of national jurisdiction without geographical limits. The Court is located in Washington, D.C. where it hears the majority of appeals before the Court.  It also hears a  limited number of cases elsewhere throughout the country each year.

Whether your veterans disability claim is at the Regional Office, Board of Veterans Appeals, or CAVC, Travis Studdard may be able to assist you with your claim.  Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Please join us in congratulating Travis on this latest milestone in his representation of those who have served and sacrificed for our country.

What if I have more questions about my VA claim?

I understand you want your VA claim to be done as quickly as possible. But remember the ultimate goal – to win your VA disability compensation claim.

You may eventually get there on your own, but it may be after a series of decisions by the Regional Office and Board of Veterans Appeals. Sometimes claims are appealed and remanded several times, which can cause a claim to drag on for years. If you are interested in avoiding unnecessary delay in your claim and want to do everything you can to maximize your chances of success, it is probably a good idea for you to consult with an accredited veterans disability attorney.

We would be happy to talk to you. If you would like a free consultation with our Perkins Studdard veterans disability attorneys just click here or give us a call to begin the process.
