Social Security & Veterans Disability Client Testimonials
Hill & Ponton, P.A. has helped over 30,000 people secure the benefits they deserve. Here are just a few of our satisfied clients:
My husband died from liver cancer as a result of chemical exposure during his Air Force career. After his passing, I went directly to the VA to claim DIC and it was denied. Then, I contacted Mathew Hill (Hill and Ponton) and hire him to represent me. Mr. Hill kept me informed and the times that I personally spoke with him he was caring and attentive. He took my case and after almost three years, Mr Hill got my claim approved by the VA.
I want to thank you all for the work and effort you dedicated to my efforts to attain benefits with the VA. I could not imagine a better effort!
I especially would like to thank Leslie Gaines for her work on my case.
The case-file copy that you sent me is impressive and exhibits the amount of work and effort that went into those documents!
I hope with all my heart that this effort succeeds as requested, especially the back-dating of the migraine decision so that H&P can be adequately (I know this amount, if granted would never be adequate) compensated for its work on my behalf.
Thank you so much!
Hill and Ponton is excellent! Carol and her team have a great knowledge of the VA Compensation process and are diligent and tenacious about getting you the benefits you deserve. I know that without the hard work of Carol and her staff I would not be receiving anything from the VA. Carol and her staff are passionate about what they do and they get results. I was very impressed by Carol’s compassion toward my situation and her determination to get me the benefits I deserved. I would highly recommend Hill and Ponton to all Veterans. Carol and her staff made a lengthy and difficult process as easy for me as they could and I deeply appreciate their help. Thank you.
I applied for disability with the VA in 2009 and was denied. Ms Gaines was able to get me a favorable rating with the VA in 2016 and all of the back pay and benefits I was entitled to. She did an awesome job, kept me fully informed about my case. I would highly recommend her.
I started my original claim three years ago in January. I had no idea of the amount of supportive materials needed and the process of submitting all the materials. I learned by experience and fortunately discovered Vet Connect Inc. that helped me transition from a VSO to the DAV, as the VSO double my paper work and thus got my claim bumped out of the system and then had to be re-entered, etc. If I would have known about your book and website (and the important thing – read and learn) it would have certainly got me off to a much better start and understanding of the system. I have had three C & P exams, and with no knowledge of preparation for the first one (heart stint), though I did get a rating, it could have been higher if I would how to prepare. My second one, dealing with Ischemic heart disease and a new pacemaker (my second) I can’t remember if I saw on your website or elsewhere where that the VA bottom line for Injection Fraction rate is 50. The doctor that was giving me the exam made a first statement that he didn’t believe he could do much for me with just a pacemaker. By chance, a few months previous I had had a stress test, as well as a new pacemaker and my Injection Fraction was 47, and I mentioned to him this fact. Immediately he deleted the information and started over again. The result was another 20% rating. I am not sure you have this information listed in your website or materials but if not, it may be a good example to include. My first claim was for a heart stint. So by my third C & P exam for PTSD, I was much more prepared and as well discovered your book and website. As the exam began it was like going down a check list of the questions that were being asked and I had appropriate answers for each in detail. It resulted in a 100% rating, that pleased me beyond measure. All this to say, so many Veterans could help themselves if they took time to study and prepare for their claims and C & P exams. My initial thoughts were that once you submitted your papers and filed the claim, that was pretty much it. So from my experience, I preach to Vets filing claims how important documentation and preparation are to get things right at the beginning, saving a lot headaches and lost time.
