Helping Veterans Protect Their Rights
Veterans are entitled to certain resources based on their service to our country. The application process, however, can become overwhelming especially when dealing with a disability or crisis. The Veterans Administration understands this and accredits certain professionals to assist men and women who have served in uniform.
Our VA-Accredited Attorney
Robert Starkman is Of Counsel at NachtLaw, P.C. He is a VA-accredited attorney who is authorized to assist in the preparation, presentation and prosecution of VA benefit claims, a distinction given to less than 1 percent of Michigan attorneys. Robert has been a VA-accredited attorney for over six years.
What Is An Accredited Representative?
An accredited representative is an individual who has undergone a formal application and training process and is recognized by VA as being capable of assisting claimants with their affairs before VA. The accreditation process includes an examination, a background investigation, and continuing education requirements to ensure VA-accredited attorneys are providing the most up-to-date information.
What Is The Role Of An Accredited Representative?
The role of a VA-accredited attorney is to bring clarity to the confusing nature of the VA process. Veteran service representatives are trained to help you understand and apply for any VA benefits you may be entitled to including:
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Disability claims and denials
- Life insurance
- Health care
- Burial benefits
Whether you need immediate assistance or are planning ahead, it is important to understand the available benefits. These VA resources can be one part of the puzzle to keep the lights on or decide when/if you can retire.
