Springfield Veterans’ Disability Lawyer



As a service veteran, you worked long and hard – and perhaps even fought – for your country. You deserve your veterans’ disability benefits, and Rob Levine & Associates is here to make sure you get them. Attorney Levine served in the Rhode Island National Guard and has had a long-standing career focus on helping the servicemen and women who have fought to keep our country free.




All veterans of the military are eligible for VA benefits after an honorable discharge from service. The VA is a great resource for helping veterans with a variety of life issues, including medical benefits, job and career assistance, financial services, and other areas of post-service life. Unfortunately, as with many government agencies, getting full benefits from the VA can be an extremely complex process. All too often, veterans may spend years trying to get claims approved or amended or to gain access to additional compensation that they are due.

Rob Levine & Associates helps Springfield veterans like you get the benefits you deserve. The claims process is often complicated, but we follow it all the way through to get you the maximum financial benefit as allowed by the VA system. We take away the burden of dealing directly with the VA by doing it all for you.

The following are general areas that an attorney can help you with regarding your veterans’ disability claim.

• If your benefits were denied after your submission to your regional VA office, an attorney will appeal the case to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
• If you are still turned away, we will prepare an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims – the first step in the US Judicial system.
• In the unlikely case you are still denied or dissatisfied with the outcome, we can prepare appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and even the US Supreme Court, in extreme cases.


Even with your initial application, a Springfield disability lawyer can be helpful. The paperwork becomes complicated and your chances for success increase dramatically with an attorney taking the hassle over for you.

Rob Levine is the one to turn to for your veterans’ disability issues.

FAQs About Your

VA Disability Claim

Can I receive VA disability compensation and continue to work?
In the Social Security disability system, in order to receive benefits, the standard is, "you are not capable of any form of gainful employment.” Unlike Social Security Disability, you can work while receiving VA disability compensation. Your VA disability benefits is based on how your service-connected disabilities impact your ability to work.
Can I receive VA disability compensation and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time?
Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) does not have a barrier to net worth or income provisions. Regardless of the home, the vehicle you own, or investments you've made - or alimony or pension from previous employment, this would not prohibit you from receiving SSDI. Similarly, this would not prohibit you from qualifying and receiving VA disability benefits. Even if you were to qualify for a 100% TDIU rating, you would still qualify for SSDI benefits either under the SSDI guidelines or the VA Disability guidelines.
How long will the VA take to decide my disability case?
The average length of time to adjudicate any claim or appeal depends on many factors, including the type of appeal or claim, the Regional Office, the number of disabilities to decide, any necessary development, and the overall complexity of the case. Cases in the VA’s legacy appeal system can take years. In contrast, the VA has set the following timeliness goal for adjudicating AMA appeals:
  • Supplemental Claims: within 125 days
  • Higher Level Review: within 125 days
  • Board of Veterans’ Appeals – Direct Review Docket: within 365 days
  • Board of Veterans’ Appeals – Evidence and Hearing Docket: over 365 days
Do I have to hire a Veterans Disability lawyer?
