Shannon Brewer’s Avvo Reviews
A Great Choice That Changed My Life
Hiring Shannon Brewer of Hill and Ponton was the best choice I could have made regarding my claim with the VA. Having spoken with her on the phone before hiring her, I could hear the compassion in her voice and her knowledge of the appeals process was clear. Up until this point I had been trying to handle the appeals to the VA on my own, but felt totally hopeless. The appeals process had been going on for years. I know without Shannon as my attorney my case would never have been resolved. Shannon was generous with her time and never failed to answer any of my questions, either on the phone or via e-mail. In fact, she always responded to e-mail immediately, even on a weekend! Not only is she an excellent lawyer, but her desire to help veterans meant everything to me. She really cared about my case and about me. Her concern was genuine. I can’t say enough in praise of Shannon. There was absolutely no way I could have done this on my own, and gotten the same results, which were exactly what she told me we would fight for. These words do not do justice to how she has changed my life. All things being said, I have closure now.
This is the best thing you ever did, looking for a second opinion/review.
After being in the battle with the VA for many years, with little to no progress, I decided to put my energy in selecting a law firm who could represent me.
After looking at many law firms, I ended up selecting Shannon’s firm Hill & Ponton , based upon their informative web-site and professional results.
They start out with gathering all pertinent information,and taking the time explain to you as to how they want to go about it, and asking what you think should be done as well.
Shannon is thorough in her research, on time, and has your best interest in mind, and knows the answers to your questions.
Her process of taking care of your claim is superb, they guided me through the entire process and do what say they do, and answer all the questions you might have in a timely matter.
I would not be writing this, if it was not for the fact that she got my claim with the VA settled in record time in my opinion and having received this excellent service.
I can only say to whoever read this, be smart, save yourself the research time(I have put in)and get your case on the road with her, she is a your best attorney ever.
Having her recommended to many of my Military buddies and will continue to recommend her in the future, as a true advocate for Military Service members.
My sincere thanks to the entire Hill & Ponton staff, and special thanks to Shannon for all the dedicated work you put in to resolve my claim with the VA.
