Helping veterans receive the benefits they deserve.

Paralyzed Veterans of America's Appellate Services program has maintained one of the highest rates of success among all veteran's service organizations in representing veterans before VA’s Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA).

Veterans may turn to the Appellate Services program for representation when their benefits or medical claims have been denied by local VA facilities for issues such as:

  • Effective date of benefit awards

  • Clear and unmistakable errors

  • Mortgage insurance

  • Military discharge review boards

  • Boards of correction for military records

  • Individual unemployability

  • Service disabled veterans life insurance

  • Educational benefits

Our Appellate Services legal staff works directly with the local PVA National Service Officer and the veteran or family member to obtain all evidence possible and present written and/or oral argument before BVA. In addition, we provide free representation to active duty service members and veterans before military Physical Evaluation Boards, Boards of Correction for Military Records and Discharge Review Boards to ensure that every benefit possible is obtained.
