Brendan Garcia is my attorney for all my VA claims & issues at present and will be always in the future. I Started with a DAV representative, totally useless, then had about 7 different appointments with different so called attorneys that claim that they can handle VA issues. Unbelievably, they were also useless and unfamiliar with VA procedure, it was evident. Not to mention about dozen that I called and never had a reply. Finally, one attorney before Mr. Garcia was a former Veteran, had to fire him, he never communicated, wasn’t prepared and almost lost the appointment date for a RO hearin
I processed my VA Agent Orange appeal for over 4 years and could not get satisfaction out of the bureaucratic maze. I then contacted Brendan Garcia, who is a former Marine and has, in the past, worked as an attorney for the VA.

He without any promises said he would be interested in pursuing my situation. I gathered up a very lengthy file that required a notice to the VA as to whether I would be entering an appeal; Brendan locked in that appeal. What impressed be is his professional interest in an extremely difficult case that will involve many , many hours of research on his part. His agreement (professional feed) over this agreement was very fair –no
I would like to take a few moments to tell you something extremely important. To all DISABLED VETERANS: I realized after years of quiet requests on my own and even with help from V.S.O. Officers, I was going nowhere with the VA. I am a service connected vet from Lebanon ’82/’83. My situation was a no brainier. I had continued to work 34 years in great pain, as not to burden tax payers. I had asked politely for modest pension increases multiple times, to no avail. I saw an add online for Veterans Law Firm. This is when I called Brendan Garcia. He took my call personally, looked up my record fro..
