Presenters: Christian McTarnaghan & Zachary Stolz
NOVA held this Webinar on June 15, 2017.
Your long-time client calls – VA wants to reduce his rating or sever his benefits. What should you do next? Join Christian McTarnaghan of Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick for a discussion of the differences between proposed and actual rating reductions or severances, your client’s due process rights, and when and how to disagree with these actions. Christian discusses relevant case law and manual provisions on these topics, particularly regarding VA’s requirement to consider the entire veteran’s history before reducing a rating and whether improvement is under the ordinary conditions of life. He provides practical advice on when and how to request a hearing, how to counsel clients on the possibility of reduction, and when an attorney can get fees in these cases.
