Looking for a Veterans’ Benefits Lawyer? Hire One in New York Today

Published on June 15th, 2018

Hiring a veteran’s benefits lawyer in New York is the best way to ensure that your application is as complete as possible before you send it. However, finding a reputable attorney involves proper research. In particular, knowing the right kind of questions to ask when you are searching around can make it much easier to find the right firm fast.

How Many Years of Experience Do You Have?

It is crucial to hire an attorney who has many years of experience with VA claims. There are some areas of law, such as family or criminal, where hiring a lawyer right out of law school can work in your favor. However, when it comes to something like VA claims, knowing that your attorney has successfully argued others’ cases in the past is ideal. You need to know that the person you hire knows the ins and outs of the VA application process, which can be quite complicated and involved.

How Do You Stay Up-to-Date on VA Law?

Regardless of field, law constantly changes. This is true with VA law as well. Ask the law firm you are thinking about hiring about how they stay current on any changes to policy or procedure. Some may do so through reading trade journals, while others do so by attending seminars and continuous professional development seminars. There is no one right answer to this question, but you should be sure you receive one that satisfies you.

Who is the Individual Responsible for My Case?

Finally, you should ask about which lawyer is going to be responsible for your case. In some firms, you meet with senior lawyers while junior attorneys do most of the work. This arrangement works well, as it keeps your fees low while still ensuring that your case is under the supervision of someone with lots of experience.
