Being able to work and provide for yourself and your family is an ability that many take for granted. But when that ability is denied because of illness or injury, often the only option is to seek disability compensation. Obtaining VA disability benefits can be a lengthy process, and not everyone is approved for benefits or approved at the level of compensation they deserve. Veterans who are denied disability benefits or receive insufficient disability benefits should turn to an attorney experienced in representing disabled clients. One such attorney is Jesse Poag. Jesse understands the VA disability benefits process and uses that understanding to advocate for Veterans who are seeking disability compensation.

Jesse understands the importance of being able to provide for yourself and your family and is committed to representing Veterans. Because of his unique perspective, you can rely on Jesse to listen carefully to you and then use his experience to develop and present a strong claim on your behalf.
