About Us | The Veterans Law Group

The Veterans Law Group was the creation of Mark Lippman, a seasoned attorney whose practice is dedicated to claims made on behalf of disabled veterans and their dependents.  We look forward to serving your needs.

The Veterans Law Group provides representation to veterans and their dependents in their appeals at the Regional Office, Board of Veterans' Appeals, Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and the Federal Circuit. That is all we do. Because we concentrate only in Veterans Claims, we are completely current on the law and, most importantly, on the day-to-day practice of the VA. We specialize in the legal assistance of veterans seeking help with va disability benefits and VA disability claims. We have fought and won veterans disability cases that have established new precedents for veterans disability benefits and claims.

Our Pledge

The Veterans Law Group is committed to obtaining the maximum level of available benefits in every way possible. We know that most claims fail because of lack of medical evidence. Thus, we promise our clients that we will obtain medical opinions, if appropriate, to support their claims. We also promise to advance costs for the payment of the medical opinion.
