    For claims under the VEA and MRCA acts, the Veterans’ Review Board (VRB) is an independent tribunal that can review and make a new and binding determination.

    Our team can advocate on your behalf, representing you at the VRB.

    If your claims are successful it can allow you to re-focus on other parts of your life and help support your financial independence.
