It is an unfortunate reality that many veterans’ claims for disability benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are denied or unfairly minimized. There are many veterans who genuinely need the help those disability benefits can provide. Colonel (Retired) Rick Rousseau is focused on helping veterans present the strongest possible cases to help them secure the VA disability benefits they deserve.

How We Can Begin Helping You

While we do not file initial claims for disability benefits for veterans, we can begin working on your case after a rating decision.

The problems our clients face fall into two categories:

  • Complete denial of veterans disability benefits
  • Awarding benefits based on a disability rating that is much lower than what the person is actually suffering

We Know How To Build Cases The VA Understands

The VA has very specific requirements for the awarding of disability benefits. Even people with legitimate disabilities can be denied benefits if their case is not presented properly. With Colonel (Retired) Rick Rousseau’s military and VA experience, he understands how to build cases that clearly communicate your circumstances to the VA so that you can get the full benefits to which you are entitled.

Decades Of Veterans Disability Experience

At Criss & Rousseau Law Film LLP, our firm is here to help veterans through the difficult process of navigating the VA and the process of securing benefits. Attorney Rick Rousseau is a retired colonel with 27 years of active duty experience as a judge advocate (JAG). He understands veterans issues and the challenges that they face. Obtaining the disability benefits you deserve should not be one of those challenges. Let Rick Rousseau help you.

Rick Rousseau was a life saver for me… He guided me through all of the stumbling blocks of putting together a Power of Attorney and educated me on Medicare and Medicaid. My trip to Texas was quick and efficient thanks to his guidance – if it hadn’t been for his help there would have been many wasted hours and expense. I would strongly recommend Rick and his firm to anyone in a similar set of circumstances.
