Attorneys for Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims

Baseball teams use different types of pitchers at different times in a game.

When it comes to your client’s BVA decisions, think of Attig | Steel as your team’s relief pitcher.

When your client’s claim or appeal is “on the line”, and you need a professional appellate attorney to address legal and factual errors in your client’s adverse BVA decision, call Attig | Steel, PLLC.

Whether you are an accredited attorney, VSO, or agent, if the BVA denies your client’s benefits appeal, we may be able to help.

Appeals to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

The attorneys at Attig | Steel take pride in providing professional appellate representation at the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

  • We come to your clients’ VA appeals with a fresh set of eyes, and a desire to correct the legal and factual errors that are holding you back from a win for your client.

  • We scour the record before the BVA to find and prove reversible and remandable factual or legal error by the Veterans Law Judge.

  • We prepare professional, polished, and persuasive briefs and arguments to the federal judges who will decide your client’s appeal.

  • Dual representation: your client can retain Attig | Steel for appeals to the CAVC or the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals while you continue to serve as the lead representative fighting for other benefits at the VA Regional Office or BVA.

When we succeed in vacating, reversing or remanding your client’s BVA decision, we hand the case back to you, so that you can carry the claim and appeal you have toiled over for years into the end-zone for the win.

Appellate representation at no cost to you or your client.

If we prevail in your client’s appeal, we ask the court to order the VA to pay our attorney fees — not out of any past-due and not out of your contingency fee, but out of the VA’s operating budget under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA).

If you are a veteran who was recently denied by the BVA and would like to discuss an appeal of that BVA denial to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, please fill out our consultation form on our contact page.
