Substantive Appeal

After receiving a Statement of the Case, the appellant must file a Substantive Appeal to continue the appellate process. In the Substantive Appeal, the appellant has the opportunity to present specific arguments relating to errors of fact or law in the decision of the regional office. The Substantive Appeal may consist of an adequately executed VA Form 9, Appeal to Board of Veterans Appeals, or correspondence containing the necessary information. This is the final action the appellant must take to perfect the appeal.

"Best decision I have ever made was calling VLG for help. Mark Lippman walked me through everything from start to finish and without his help I would still be waiting on my claim. So thankful more than words can explain. By far the best lawyers I ever talked to or used or even heard people talk about. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You helped me more than I ever dreamed of."
