From start to finish, my service connected disability case took 12 years: 2007-2019!
The local County Veterans’ Services was very helpful in getting started. My wife and I were able to work with them for about the first six years: up to the point we needed legal representation at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, D.C. At that point I received numerous advertisements from law offices (including Gang & Associates) wanting to represent me. I chose Mr. Gang because of his commitment to Veterans both in and out of the courtroom.
Gang’s law office was very professional and successful in getting first a 90% service connected disability rating and then maximum Unemployability benefits. He was very knowledgeable about the process and obtained an expert medical witness to support my case. It would be hard to find better representation.
The most frustrating aspect of the VA process was the waiting and being shot down so many times by the other side. One has to just do the paperwork and then go on with life, even though it’s always in the back of your mind. The best part – getting the first retroactive check: (20 months after award) and the future monthly payments. Because of all my health problems I had been turned down for any type of long term health insurance. It’s a big relief for my family and me knowing the VA will be there in the future.
Thank you to Gang & Associates. We feel you were the difference between winning and losing.
