If you are results-oriented, professional in both appearance and presentation, with excellent writing and oral skills who is able to adjust to a sometimes rapidly changing VA hearing schedule, and willing and eager to help guide veterans in need through the grueling process of obtaining benefits due them, we urge you to apply. Please send a resume, writing sample, and cover letter

Compensation is $62,000 (a higher salary possible for those with significant relevant experience)

  • Review any rating decisions on your cases and advise the case manager on what the next action to be taken on the case is
  • Review and electronically sign your case manager’s outgoing mail


  • Hold a Zoom team meeting with your case manager and your group
  • Participate in the weekly attorney Zoom meeting
  • Before leaving on Friday, double-check to make sure your case manager’s work has been reviewed and review your calendar for hearings and hearing-related tasks such as client calls and evaluations letters to make sure there are no emergencies to be handled and the next week’s schedule has no conflicts


  • Prepare (including full review of the file) and present BVA hearings for 15 clients
  • Preparation calls for the 15 hearing clients by phone or Zoom
  • Draft the medical and vocational evaluation requests including attaching any critical records for the evaluator

You must possess strong legal research and writings skills and you must work well in a team environment.
