After exiting the military, I suffered from health problems. I turned to the Department of Veterans Affairs for their support. Not only was I unsuccessful but the process was overbearing and stressful. Poverty crept into my life. I continued to feel sadness, hopelessness, and worry for 8 years or more until I heard about the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly who supports their veterans. I am grateful for Nancy Foti, Esquire, my super heroine of an angel who worked diligently and tenaciously on my military claim along with her associates! As a result, I was granted the military service connection that I deserved. Now I am relieved from failure, disappointment and despair! Now my tears are from joy!

In March of 1968 my husband, David, stepped on a land mine in Vietnam and started down the horrible road called The VA. In July of 2008, David applied for aid and attendant so I could retire and take care of him because of the Rheumatoid arthritis that was taking over his body from the injuries he received in Vietnam. On August the 2oth, 2012 my beloved husband died after months in the hospital from the arthritis taking over his lungs. David's claim for aid and attendant was denied by 2 judges claiming I had confused them and he did not qualify.
In February of 2015, I had had enough and found my God-send, David Lowenstein. In less than a year he has taken hold of my cause and fought for me in ways I never could have and on October the 5th of 2016 David's claim was approved. I will never get a chance to tell David that he got what was right but, I can sure tell you that without Mr. Lowenstein, I would have never found justice. Thank You
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your representation on my appeal. I’m very pleased and satisfied with the results that were achieved on my behalf. I was always kept informed of each step of the appeal. I’m very happy to have been a client of Goodman Allen Donnelly – the best.

I cannot give enough thanks to the Veterans Benefit Group of Goodman Allen Donnelly for helping me get my survivor’s Benefit and Burial Benefit from the Veterans Administration. I had jumped all the hoops through the VA system for over 3 years, and even being denied after my hearing in DC with a DAV representative there. From the beginning the Law Firm was encouraging but also honest in expectations that it might take a couple of years to get a decision, and that that decision could still be adverse. They kept me well informed about all their contacts with the VA. To my surprise I received approval notice from the VA for both benefits in eight months! This decision prevented me from having to file bankruptcy. I will be eternally grateful to the Law Firm for their hard work and for all they do for veterans and their families.
ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I HAVE EVER MADE
I had several dozen letters from various law firms and attorneys all over the country offering to represent me at the VA. I read them all carefully and selected the top three from the pack. Each of them received a call from me to discuss how they would handle my claim. From those calls I selected GOODMAN, ALLEN & DONNELLY. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Right from the beginning my claim was assigned to a specific VA specialist attorney - Nancy Foti, who has been with me throughout this entire process. She had a "team" of paralegals to assist her. Together they made sure my phone calls and e-mails were answered promptly. They explained the finer points of the VA memos, requests and legal process to me in terms I could understand. I was copied on all of their correspondence with the VA. They handled everything over the years including the several appeals that were necessary. Ultimately they were able to obtain a very satisfactory disability rating for me.
I have been absolutely delighted in my association with Goodman, Allen & Donnelly and would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with the VA on disability claims.
