What Veterans Law Blog® Field Manuals Come With the Subscription?
#1: 5 Reasons that the VA Keeps Screwing Up Your Claim
In the 7 years, I’ve looked at HUNDREDS — if not THOUSANDS — of C-Files in cases that the VA has denied a Veterans benefits.
There are patterns showing why the VA Keeps screwing up your VA Claims!
Here are 5 ways to break those patterns the VA isn’t going to share!
#2: How to Choose a VA Claims Attorney
I see it all the time – a Veteran gets in over their head in their VA Benefits claim, and then scrambles to find an attorney.
Often, they make a choice that may not be ideal for their claim.
I teach Veterans 8 Things they should know before hiring an attorney in a VA Benefits Claims. Included is a 30-question checklist to use when interviewing attorneys.
#3: TDIU Field Manual
TDIU can be a complicated and sometimes overwhelming claim or appeal for a Veteran – even the VA regional offices and BVA get confused about what you need to prove to get this benefit.
Rather than overwhelm you with lawyer-talk, legalese, and convoluted analysis, this eBook presents the core information that a Veteran filing for TDIU needs to know.
This eBook will help you understand the process, law and strategy of the average TDIU claim – written in plain English.
#4: DRO Case Study (APPLIES TO LEGACY APPEALS ONLY)
In this case study, the Veteran got to his DRO hearing and was told that his Major Issue – Ischemic Heart Disease resulting from exposure to Agent Orange on the Korean DMZ – was not on appeal.
This Case Study is a helpful look into how the DRO Process can help you achieve a positive outcome.
#5: Sworn Declaration
If you are going to submit lay evidence, wouldn’t you rather the VA give it full legal weight? Of course you would.
Use a Sworn Declaration form that my law firm uses to add lay evidence to the Veteran’s appeal.
The sworn declaration – according to 28 USC § 1746 – carries the same legal weight as a notarized affidavit.
#6: 10 Veterans Court Cases Every Veteran Should Know.

You can’t win your VA Claim or Appeal without evidence.

Is the Veterans Law Blog® Worth The Cost?
I think so: I put a lot of time into giving you content that is thorough, helpful and informative.
Nobody else – no accredited attorney and no VSO – will teach you how to Take Back the Power in Your VA Claim or Appeal.
But don’t listen to me….here’s what your fellow Veterans said about the Veterans Law Blog®:
Tim T (Vietnam Veteran, medic & former nurse): “I followed your process on the Vet law blog and I am now rated at 70% in only 3 months. Thank you Chris!”
Joe B: “Your blog is the top of the heap of resources available for veteran’s claims.”
Richard S: “The veterans law blog has great ebooks that will get you going in the right direction.”
Bruce D: “I want to donate to the Veterans Law Blog® in lieu of what had been my 25+ years of DAV contributions. I learned more in a month from the Vet Law blog than the DAV ever taught me.”
Bonnie G: “I am so pleased to find your website! Your selection of books is wonderful and the knowledge you share is priceless!”
Alex L: ” Considering what someone like me would have to pay to get this information from an accredited VA attorney, I would say the price worth every penny. Your information is valuable.”
National VSO Service Rep: “Your blog material is shedding new light on the VA process and how to increase the probability of getting a successful claim award.” (This rep asked me to keep his name confidential)
Daniel T.: “Thank you! Reading your blogs and books worked. You give Veterans so much knowledge. You gave me tools to get 100% permanent and total. I will call to personally thank you.”
Brad S.: “My sincere gratitude…if there was a “Chris Attig” that I could have crossed paths with back in 1974, I could have been in the VA System literally DECADES ago!”
Samuel A. “Great website! I have purchased most of your eBooks and have found them to be very helpful and I very much appreciate the information in understanding and dealing with the VA.”

Security of your payment information is important to me.
I NEVER see – and NEVER have access to – your credit card information.
