I'm (SSG) Albert L. Thombs Jr. I'm a disabled veteran who served in the United States Army during the Gulf War. I am a member of the Office of General Council #45147 and a Certified VA Disability Claims Agent Certified by the Department of Veterans. The VA requires accredited attorneys and claims agents to complete continuing legal education courses to maintain their accreditation.  38 U.S.C. §§ 5901-5902, 5904; 38 C.F.R. § 14.629

For more than a decade years, I've assisted hundreds of veterans filing and appealing VA disability claims. I will help you identify the weaknesses in your case and make recommendations on how we overcome them together. 


What do I do for you?


  • I will initiate a development process to investigate the status of your various cases with the VA to determine what has and has not been done to get grounded in your case. 

  • Once grounded in your case, I will help you identify the weaknesses in your case and make recommendations on how to overcome them.

  • I analyze and develop a strategy to win your benefits in the shortest amount of time.

  • I will challenge the VA’s adversarial conclusions that obstruct your benefits.

  • I gather all your Military and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Records, to include records from your private doctors.

  • I have the experience to apply current case law and precedent court decisions to keep the VA in check in the manner in which they adjudicate your appeal.

  • I find and correct errors in an earlier decision to get you the earliest possible effective date of your compensation award.
