In the nearly three years he worked at that office, he wrote nearly 700 decisions for more than 16 different Administrative Law Judges. When he moved into private practice, it was with the commitment to deliver high-quality legal services to some of the countries most vulnerable citizens.

Veterans Benefits Law Firm

Veteran's Disability and Benefits Attorneys and Lawyers

Joe Whitcomb knows exactly how it feels to fight for the Veterans benefits you were promised when you served your country in military service. When he was medically discharged in 2005 due to a hearing loss, Joe turned to the VA to help him in his transition to civilian life. Like many of you, he was denied the Veteran’s benefits he had earned and to which he was entitled. After fighting for five years, and going through multiple appeals, Joe finally won his fight and used the money he won to pay for law school. He decided at that point to dedicate a significant part of his legal practice to helping other Veterans. If you hire Whitcomb Law PC to be your Veterans benefits law firm, we will fight for your case at the Regional Office, the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA), and the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).
