Veterans Disability Services

As a military veteran, you’ve already served your country and earned your benefits.

Unfortunately, getting access to those benefits for veterans suffering from a disability who need financial assistance and/or medical care can be a real challenge.

The process required can be long, confusing, and is governed by a list of rules and regulations that are difficult to navigate. It can often take many years before a veteran or their family members receive the benefits to which they are entitled.

Which is why it helps to have somebody with experience like Dax Lonetto on your side.

Are you eligible for veterans disability benefits?

In order to determine if you’re eligible, ask yourself if any of the following descriptions apply to your situation …

  • You’ve sustained an injury or incurred a disease while in service
  • You had a preexisting condition that was aggravated by being in service
  • You are totally disabled due to a condition or conditions incurred out of service
  • You are the widow or dependent of a veteran who died as a result of an injury or condition incurred in service
  • You require the assistance of another person in your home as a result of disability
  • You are unemployable because of your disability

If so, then you may be entitled to benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). Which means Dax J. Lonetto, Sr., PLLC should be able to help you get the financial assistance you need to care for yourself and your family.

Know your rights. Retain your dignity. Get the help you need.

What People Say About Dax Lonetto …

“Dax Lonetto Won For Me! I wish to advise all veterans that if you have been turned down by the VA for disability, you should contact Dax Lonetto. The VA denied my disability in 2015. I contacted Mr. Lonetto and for the next four years he battled the VA on my behalf. After denial after denial, he sent it to a higher review board. The review board then awarded my disability, and I received back pay for over four years. This would NEVER have happened without the hard work of Dax Lonetto. We lost battle after battle but he won the war for me! Give him a call.”

Rick

“I first met with Dax in November 2016 and by the end of March 2017 my VA rating went from 90% to 100% P&T disabled. I will say that my claim went through faster than normal because I have terminal cancer and the VA expedites all my claims. Time frame aside though, he worked really hard on getting me that increase and I know he will do the same for you. Along with the increased rating he is still working on my cancer claim. He reached out to 2 of my oncologists in 2 different states and both responded favorably. He went through each and every one of my 2647 pages of medical records and found 2 major discrepancies. Discrepancies that I never would have found and that the DAV never found. This to me is literally like finding a needle in a haystack and Dax found them. I couldn’t be more grateful and I am absolutely confident that because of what he found that a positive outcome is inevitable. He has worked very diligently on my case and I believe he will do this for all of his clients. If I ever have any questions or concerns he always addresses them in a timely manner. His entire staff is very courteous and professional. I am very happy with my decision to go with Dax as my attorney. Give him the opportunity and I’m sure you will be happy too.”

Really appreciate him and highly recommend Dax for VA Appeal and Claim work!”

In the end, we were successful and I won my claim appeal. All the credit goes to Dax on this. If you are looking for a lawyer who actually cares about your best interest, then Dax is the guy to hire.

Jay Web

“I am a Desert Storm Veteran. Dax Lonetto was instrumental in helping me receive all the benefits I deserve. He knows the system so well, the VA responded with excellent results. I am also receiving SSDI which Dax one again fought for my benefits. He is the most caring and personable lawyer I have ever know. I am so glad I found Dax Lonetto and would recommend him to anyone seeking assistance with VA or SS claims. Thank you Dax … you’re the greatest!”

Ken

“I want to take this opportunity to thank and to recommend the services of Dax J. Lonetto Sr., Esq. to any Veteran that is applying for or having issues with the VA disability award process. I sought Mr. Lonetto’s assistance after my justifiable claim was denied by the VA. Through Mr. Lonetto’s recommendations, I obtained supporting statements from my VA physician, plus a non-VA medical expert in the field. Both were in agreement with my claim and Mr. Lonetto submitted the new supporting documentation. The VA again denied my claim. Dax then appealed and represented me for a new, or fresh look (de novo), by a higher level VA representative. My claim was approved! Granted, this process took many months for the VA to accomplish, but because of this attorney’s expertise, I was successful. If you have a valid claim, I can think of no one else to better serve you and to recommend a course of action, plus provide faithful representation than Dax J. Lonetto Sr.”

Daniel

“Dax and his team were phenomenal. The VA had denied my disability claim for Service Connected Sleep Apnea. Dax handled everything for me. All of our correspondence was handled through email and phone, so I never had to travel up to the lawyer’s office. He filed my appeal, scheduled an appointment with a civilian doctor, and after about a 12 month wait, the VA approved my claim and I received the increased VA disability rating, plus the back pay from the date I originally filed my claim. I would highly recommend Dax for any VA disability claims.”

Justin Puckett

“I am very grateful for Attorney Dax Lonetto’s assistance navigating through the VA’s tedious system. After 3 years of fighting for my benefits on my own, I reached out to him and got the results I was looking for and deserved. Thanks, Dax!”

Xiomara Rivera

“Mr. Lonetto is professional, efficient and effective. He has extensive knowledge of VA Regulations and how to navigate the complex claims processing within the Department. In my case, he studied my file and proposed a road map that resulted in an increase of my disability rating in a fairly short period of time. I am very happy with my decision of engaging Mr. Lonetto to assist me in my case. I will not hesitate to use him again in the future and I recommend him to anyone needing an attorney to assist with VA disability claims.”
