Veterans and their dependents frequently find themselves without full benefits from the Department of Affairs, benefits which are mandated by federal laws and court cases. The only way for Veterans and their dependents to navigate this process is to obtain the assistance of a qualified attorney who is fully versed in the subject matter of Veterans Laws.

This CLE course will provide the introductory basics that will enable you to provide effective legal representation to our Nation’s Veterans when they pursue from VA the maximum benefits they deserve.
