|Matthew Hill:||Hello, and welcome to the Hill and Ponton video blog. I’m Matthew Hill.|
|Carol Ponton:||I’m Carol Ponton.|
|Matthew Hill:||Today, we’d like to talk to you about a question that we get all the time. That is in what states do you represent veterans? Where do you practice VA law?|
|Carol Ponton:||The answer is we work all over the United States. VA law is federal law, so it’s the same in every state. There are probably not 200 lawyers who do just veterans work, and many of those have only started doing it recently. For years, we’ve represented veterans in California and Michigan, all over the US.|
|Matthew Hill:||Our main office is in Florida, and we have a lot of cases in Florida, but we are all over the US, we travel all over. As Carol said, the law doesn’t change from place to place. Unfortunately, mistakes don’t typically change from place to place.|
|Carol Ponton:||They don’t change from place to place. It’s very easy to do them all over. Everything is pretty much on the internet now. Everything is paperless, and I’ve had no problem for years doing that.|
|Matthew Hill:||Yeah, our office has been paperless for over ten years, which means we put everything on our server, and so if there’s something our clients need, and they’ve sent us hard copies, we just send that back, but we can also e-mail whatever we have been sent, and that’s how we interact with the VA as well, is that we fax stuff in. We send it to their processing center. We’ve never really had a problem.|
|Carol Ponton:||Under the VA system, they have allowed, I think, 120 lawyers to access their clients cases on the VA system. We actually are able to go into the VA and access our clients, wherever they are in the US, and look at all the things that have been filed, what’s going on with their case.|
|Matthew Hill:||Essentially, the answer to that question is nationwide. We can represent you wherever you are. We are familiar with all 50 … What is it? 58? They always change the number. 58 different regional offices.|
|Carol Ponton:||He didn’t major in math.|
|Matthew Hill:||I’m a lawyer for a reason. Thank you for joining us today. We hope to see you again on the site soon.|
