From the first interaction with Hill & Ponton, I knew that everything that legally could be done would be brought to bare on my claim. I had an incomplete outprocessing when I left the military and a less than satisfactory medical briefing during my final out. Over the previous five years, my claims have been denied by the VA for the flimsiest of reasons.

I tried another VSO service which was a total rip off. The owner operator was more concerned with volume of claims versus, individual strategy tailored to my case. They tried a contract that was one sided (did not give me the option to fire them.) However, I fired them and found a second VSO, who looked at my case and recommended Hill & Ponton. They told me, that if Hill & Ponton reviewed my case and took it, that I would have the best chance of a positive ruling with my claim.

They were 100% correct! Every interaction with the Hill & Ponton staff was structured, had a clearly defined goal and reassured me that they were doing their best for me. They are very professional,  caring, and mission oriented. The end result was that I received the compensation due me based on the table set forth by Veterans Affairs. My husband and I fully endorse Hill & Ponton. And strongly recommend that you give them the opportunity to help you with your claim.

  • Thank you to the firm of Hill & Ponton!! Brian Hill and his staff were able to get my 100% disability with the VA for my exposure to herbicides in Thailand. I have been fighting for this for many years and kept getting denied, after consulting with Hill & Ponton I decided to let them help me and it was the best decision I could have made. I found their professionalism to be outstanding.

  • They got my disability rating after I was denied twice. They knew exactly how to format and submit the claim. I was rated 50%, Hill & Ponton weren’t done, they found other medical that related to exposure and submitted additional claims. I could not have received a disability rating without Hill & Ponton. If you need help, choose Hill & Ponton.

  • The service provided by Hill and Ponton was exemplary. The lawyers and staff took care of every aspect with respect and understanding of the clients needs. In my case, as a new widow, they patiently walked me through each step. They kept me informed of the progress. I cannot say enough about the service they provided. Thank you Brian and staff.

  • As a Vet you may have filed a disability claim, and if you want to win your claim you need to call Hill and Ponton. I didn’t know what to do about my condition or status until I made the call. At H&P they not only took my case, but made me feel like family. They changed my life and they will change your life too. It’s true! In my opinion you can’t do better and you won’t regret it!
