Taking a stand for our nation’s wounded warriors

The application process for disability benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is long, complex and bound up in red tape. Processors often deny meritorious claims on vague technicalities, forcing applicants to start over from scratch. If you have been denied benefits, or if an error in your disability rating has approved you for less compensation than you are entitled to, Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban may be able to help. MRSB assists veterans and their families in the Durham area and throughout the United States. Once your claim has been denied, or a disputed disability rating has been issued, we can appeal your case.

Your disability rating is the key to your benefits claim

The VA approves claims based on an assessment of an applicant’s degree of disability. Disability ratings range from 10 percent to 100 percent. With a higher disability rating, your monthly non-taxable payments and the amount of no-cost medical care you can access through the VA increases. An applicant must satisfy three points to gain access to VA benefits:

  • A current disability exists
  • The veteran first showed symptoms of the condition that led to the disability (or an aggravation of a pre-existing condition) during military service or within a short period afterward
  • A link between the current disability and an in-service disease, injury or event

Applicants often receive a lower than expected disability rating because they did not assemble adequate evidence to support these three points, or failed to present the evidence in a clear and compelling way. Our Durham lawyers have a thorough understanding of the Veterans Disability process. We have experience dealing directly with the VA's Regional Offices, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Veterans Court). We can put together a comprehensive presentation that enhances your prospects of acceptance, and if necessary, pursue your case on appeal all the way to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.

Contingency fee means reasonable rates; no up-front cost to you

MRSB advances the costs of your VA appeal, and we never charge a fee unless we win your claim for benefits. The VA appeals process can last years, but if your appeal is granted, you’re entitled to compensation dating to when you first applied. The VA pays those benefits in a lump sum, reserving 20 percent of that recovery for your attorneys. Though some veterans law firms collect higher rates directly from the veterans they represent, MRSB only accepts that 20 percent as payment.

    I live in the Northeast. I had a complicated claim and because I already have a high rating, no one near me wanted to take my case. I contacted this firm and they gladly accepted my business. I worked closely with attorney Ryan Spencer and paralega...

    This law firm helped me get the VA to classify my husband as 100% disabled from an injury he suffered while in the Navy which later gave rise to Parkinson's. They're very good.
