Thank you Jerusha..! As a Disabled Vietnam Veteran working with the Veterans Administration can be overwhelming. We as Disabled Veterans just do not know how to deal with the bureaucracies of Government Agencies. On our own we go one direction and just the difference between one word on a VA Form can cause no action or rejection of a Compensation and Pension claim. So we have to turn to Veterans Agencies or Law Firms to help us with the proper direction. I was given a low Disability Rating 1996 and for over 17 years, not really knowing the value of using help to get the proper rating, I fought alone including trying an unsuccessful appeal to accomplish. After getting again what I felt as an improper Disability Rating I gave it a lot of thought and contacted a Law firm out of Indiana for help. After a few months I called for an update on where my action was going to submitted. Seems the Lawyer that was going to take my case left and they lost my file. I was done with them. So I did some research and found the most recommended firm was Barry Law Firm. I was paired up with Jerusha Hancock. I was so Lucky. I am not an easy client. I like to talk and I like to know what is happening with my case. Jerusha always took the time to keep me updated. After it seems to me that the VA was not moving on my case Jerusha recommend filing suit against the Local VA Office and The Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Within 10 days of filing I was called by the VA to set up a Compensation and Pension Exam, which by chance I did the very next day. Then 3 Weeks later my case way completed. I received everything I was deeming due. I am now rated at 100% IU and each and every joint is rated higher than before. Because of Jerusha Hancock I am receiving the proper compensation that affords me the opportunity to buy a new home making my level of living bearable even with my disabilities. She always found time to answer my emails or call when I did not understand what was happening. She is the reason I can survive day to day now. With her recommendations I still have an open Cases and Appeals. She is trying even harder to get me elevated to receiving even more compensation, what a fantastic Job. Highly Recommend giving her a chance with your Claims. Thank you for all your help.
My journey to receive VA benefits began from the “back waters of Vietnam” as a young senior airman assigned to a US Army Special Forces (MACV) unit (1st Air Commando Squadron) headquartered in NhaTrang South Vietnam. It was a "hidden war" and US military personnel who served in those early operations were also hidden within the military personnel files of the US DoD. I contacted Attorney John S. Berry and we began a working relationship. I sent him copies of letters asking for help that I sent to the VA local, regional, and national offices. The VA never responded or helped me. John Berry was the only person in my life who believed in my claims. John continued to work with me when most lawyers would have walked away. Three plus years ago, the USAF sent a letter acknowledging my combat service in Vietnam and awarded the Expeditionary Forces Medal. After 40 years, the DD-214 was finally updated. This journey would take over 12 years and would have never ended without the Berry Law Firm. John Stevens Berry fought for me. He and his staff (Margie Bailey, etc) never gave up seeking justice for me. I know that his Berry Law Firm which was established in 1963 in Lincoln Nebraska will do the same for any of his clients. I believe that John S. Berry is a very strong supporter of all Military Veterans. The entire firm is dedicated to solving all the legal issues that veterans face when they return to their civilian lives and seek benefits that were guaranteed to them for their service. I am now receiving all of my claim benefits.
Berry Law Firm has been nothing but "OUTSTANDING" handling my V.A. claims. I am very pleased with their service for the past 5 years, and have highly recommended the firm to several individuals. I am also very pleased with the way they handle my affairs in a very timely manor, and the fact that they keep me informed every step of the way. I honestly believe I could not have picked a better firm to handle my affairs. Also, I would like to give a personal thumbs up to my attorney at Berry Law Firm, Mr. Michael Koberlein. He has made things very understandable for me; and I feel that Mr. Koberlein, along with the firm definitely have my best interest at hand. Thank you very much to the Berry Law Firm for all you have done, and continue to do for me. A higher than Five Star rating is definitely in order, and I will continue to recommend you to others in the future. BERRY LAW FIRM IS "AWESOME"!!!!!
I tend to over-react. My counselor at the VA recommended I let a lawyer handle my PTSD claim, as I needed to leave it alone. Berry Law had all positive reviews on the Internet, so I contacted them. Margie Bailey reviewed my situation for several hours, and identified several other disabilities I might want to claim. I turned the problem over to her, and things slowly began to happen. My PTSD claim was approved quickly, but some of the others are still bouncing around in the VA. I am confident that the team at Berry is on top of them. Sometimes, I get confused or angry with the process, but I always get a quick response and then I let it go again. When my son came back from Irag with a couple of physical problems, I recommended he contact both the VA and Berry Law and start getting the care he deserved. I wish I had done that when I was thirty rather than staying stuck in rage and denial.
In 2004 I tried to get benefits from the VA related to my injury in Viet Nam. I tried unsuccessfully through the Texas Veterans Commission and the VBA. I was denied and through several Compensations appointments I was still unsuccessful. After four years of trying a friend told me to call Berry Law Firm and they would help me. I called Berry Law Firm and immediately got help and started receiving benefits. I continue getting upgrades until I was finally granted 100%. Thanks to Berry Law Firm and especially Mike Koberlein for the due diligence they put into helping me to get what I knew was due to me. Mike was so involved and very pleased to work with. I have recommended Berry Law Firm to others and am so grateful to the friend who recommended them to me. Thanks to you Mike Koberlein and Berry Law Firm I am now at 100% where I could not have reached without your involvement.

I was lost thru the VA system, and was referred to Berry Law Firm through a very close and wonderful friend. When I finally got to talk to the firm about my history, they made it easy for me to understand what was going on. The ladies that worked on my case made me feel at ease while I was so upset, and made me understand my Mental Anxiety which is now called PTSD. If I ever had a question or did not understand what they were talking about they made me understand what was going on. I felt the world come off my shoulders to have someone who understood the way I was feeling. I Highly Recommend Berry Law Firm to all our Veterans. Thank you for all you have done and still doing on my behalf. Words cannot express my gratitude to BERRY LAW FIRM.
The Berry Law Firm has represented me for several years. After having very little success in dealing directly with the VA for PTSD and some other disabilities I turned to them for assistance. The difference in the attention my claim received was absolutely incredible. Their firm has a strong direct approach with the VA. Not only are they fast acting, but the VA accelerated their processing of my claim. In the time I have been associated with the Berry Law Firm I have received two increases in my disability level. They are always on top of my claim and keep me constantly informed as to its status, and their associates always provide me with creative ideas and approaches to handling my claim. i highly recommend their firm.
I was wrongfully accused and had a order to show cause protection hearing against me . During this time I was lost and confused and did not know what to do. I found Berry law to be very courteous and professional from phone call #1! I was treated with respect and was given the best representation possible! My career as a police officer was on the line and Seth understood this and together we worked out how we was going to come out ahead. During the hearing I felt confident and reassured that everything was going to be ok. Afterwords my attorney Seth Morris stuck around and answer questions from my family. I would strongly recommend this law firm to anyone!
I am currently with the Berry Law Firm. My claim is at the appeal process. I feel really confident that Berry Law Firm will get me a service connection compensation. I believe with their experience in the Military and competency in Military Law will help myself and other veterans get a favorable outcome with their claim. Any time I have a question they are very fast to get back with me and answer my questions. I would highly recommend them to any service members that needs help with the VA and their benefits. I would also like to thank Lorraine a staff member with their firm for her guidance through this complicated process.
I was under going a court martial for 4 offenses all which could have been 12 months in confinement each. My command wanted me to get bad conduct discharge and boy, am I glad I had Mr. Berry. The result ended with a few forfeitures of pay and 4 months confinement, no discharge. Due to certain military laws my command could still pursue an admin separation which ended in general under honorable conditions. A long way from a BCD. I spoke with others who were charged for the same things I was and I am the only USAF member who did not get a bad conduct discharge and I have John Berry and Berry Law Firm to thank.
In 2014 I was up to my neck in denial letters form the VA I found one rep who was not licensed. The second vet rep told me I had no claim. I knew they where wrong and I found Berry Law Firm they did not turn me away as a matter of fact they put in for more claims that they found in my claims file. 6 mos. after I signed on with them I got SMC award .To day I was just awarded 100% P&T I had my doughs but they came through!! The best part of it is I love to have enough money to pay them its a grate feeling .I hope your as lucky as I John
Berry Law was recommended to me by a fellow veteran for my disability claim to the VA I had used DAV for my original claim and the difference between the two is like day and night ! Lorraine at Berry Law took on my case with the care and concern that one would expect from a close friend and guided me through all the obstacles of dealing with the VA With my mental and physical health in decline I could never have fought my case without Lorraine and Berry Law let alone with the success that attained Sam Spodofora Disabled Vietnam Veteran
I have been working with this firm for a short time. I came to them after first working with the DAV. Two different worlds in every aspect compared to my experience with the DAV. My appeal is being handled extremely well. I am confident the results will be very favorable. Berry Law also filed a new claim on my behalf and I recently received a rating of 30% from the VA. I am very pleased with my decision to retain Berry Law and very satisfied with the attention they have given me thus far.
I would like to thank Mr. Koberlein from the Berry Law Firm for assisting me with my VA claims and appeals. I have learned so much about how the process should work and the dedication this firm does to ensure that "we veterans" get the help we deserve and earned. I retired from the Air Force in 2014. I highly recommend this firm to all Veterans who are in need of assistance with appeals or claims.
They are the very best law firm in the country they all ways listen to you and give you excellent feedback. They help you understand the process that it takes. Then they help you be successful with in your own journey if your 10% or 100% they explain to you some ways to follow your path. They always Remind you to keep Smiling each day because we need to find a positive in every day
