John Bruce and Jason Johns join West & Dunn, adding firepower to the firm's litigation and VA disability benefits teams.
West & Dunn encourages attorneys to volunteer for the American Bar Association’s Veterans Claims Assistance Network. Through VCAN, attorneys will receive free training that will permit them to assist veterans with filing initial claims for service connected disability benefits from the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
On December 7, 2018, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is scheduled to hear oral arguments in a case called Procopio v. Wilke. Although this case has quietly made its way through the courts, it has the potential to dramatically change the manner in which the US Department of Veterans Affairs addresses service-connected disability benefits claims associated with exposure to Agent Orange.
