Biography

I Handle Each Case Personally from Beginning to End

I am a veteran and have been representing my fellow veterans and their family members before the Veterans Administration since 2012. I started After Service LLC so veterans would have access to representation by a fellow veteran.

I exclusively handle VA disability compensation, pension, and survivor benefit appeals at all levels of the VA including at Regional Offices nationwide, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA), and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).

In 2002, I enlisted in the United States Air Force. I served as an instructor loadmaster on the C-17 cargo aircraft, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant before being honorably discharged in 2008. I served in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, accumulating over 2200 flying hours, including 828 combat flying hours.

I completed my bachelors degree at the University of Phoenix while I was serving in the Air Force. After my Air Force enlistment ended, I went to the University of Connecticut School of Law and obtained my J.D. where I graduated in the top quarter of my class. Although I'm originally from Connecticut, I now live in Colorado with my wife, daughter, and son.

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. i was in the military and i am having a hard time getting my records and dd214s so i can apply for much needed benefits
A: You can file your claim with VA and the VA has a duty to assist you in obtaining those records. So my recommendation is to file the claim and let VA worry about getting your service records and DD-214.
Q. If I developed seizures in the military without any history of seizures. Is it their fault?
A: It's not necessarily the military's "fault," but regardless, the general rule is that if a medical condition first started during active duty (meaning it wasn't a pre-existing condition), then you can receive disability compensation from the VA when you separate from the military.

So once you get out, make sure you apply for service connection for the seizures and you could receive compensation.
Q. Is it legal for the VA to keep my entire disability pension check to satisfy a debt they determined I owe. I can't live
A: You can request to be put on a payment plan by calling VA at 800-827-0648 or by going to this website: https://www.va.gov/manage-va-debt/
