Veterans Disability Denial
Marc Whitehead & Associates is a well-known and trusted Veterans' Disability law firm. Location does not matter. We have successfully represented disabled veterans across the U.S. at all levels within the VA disability system in their fight to obtain disability benefits.
As an Accredited Veterans Claim Attorney, I am personally committed to this endeavor. There is a shocking increase in VA Disability claims, and a shameful rise in VA disability denial. When it seems as though their country has turned its back on them, we pledge vigorous representation and legal counsel to veterans in every aspect of their disability claim, and appeals of denied claims.

We are successful because we represent our clients powerfully, professionally and compassionately. We have years of experience and deep resources for securing disability benefits for our clients. Most of our cases are handled on contingency fee - meaning we aren't paid until you are.
