After years of remands, denials and ineffective service organization representation (DAV and VFW) I have now received a grant of approval of claims from the BVA. This would not have happened without the excellent representation of the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly, with special thanks to attorney Nancy Foti. I highly recommend them to all veterans in seeking benefits or have claims pending with the VA.
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.
Since 2000, the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly has worked tirelessly on my case. They never gave up on me or my case. I prayed that my deceased husband would get his justice from the VA, and 17 years later it has come to pass. Thank you, Nancy Foti, Daniel Krasnegor and the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly for all you have done on my behalf. Words can’t express how grateful I am. May God bless you all. Thank you so much.
Congratulations again, David Lowenstein, for being successful with my very challenging CUE (Clear and Unmistakable Error) case. My wife and I appreciate you very much for your professional knowledge, attitude, and stamina in settling this incorrectly handled 1981 decision on my behalf. Thank you and your staff for always being so prompt with our questions and concerns even though you are states away from us.
