      I think you should defer to what your attorney is telling you, and I don’t want to contradict what he or she is telling you.

      Having said that, I always get great movement on my clients’ cases from DRO hearings. Read this post to see the Many Ways to Win at a DRO Hearing.

      But we never wait 2 years for a DRO Hearing. We can typically get our DRO conferences scheduled in 6-9 months from the filing of the Notice of Disagreement.

      Just call the Station Hearing Coordinator at the VA Regional Office, and ask for a formal (in-person) DRO hearing or an informal (telephone) DRO Conference.
