What services does your firm offer?

 

We offer consultative services with VA disability claims, military transitioning, social media management, and business consulting. Our approach is a done-for-you service that allows you to focus on what matters most in life while we deal with the nuances of increasing your VA disability, helping you transition from the military, or start or grow your business. 

 

How long will this process take from start to finish?

 

For VA disability claims our process takes about 90-120 days from the time you are accepted as a client until your case is decided by the VA. These timeframes can vary due to the nature of your claim and the decision timeframe by the VA. For our other services, the timeframe can vary depending on your specific need and desired goals. 

 

 

Is this a law firm?

 

 

We are a consulting firm that is comprised of Veterans, former VA Raters, medical doctors, and attorneys. We specialize in putting more money in your pocket each month for the rest of your life through the VA claim process. Our other services help you transition from the military and start, grow, or sustain your current or future business. 

 

 

Can you help me with a discharge upgrade?

 

 

Military discharge upgrades are not a subject matter that we specialize.

 

 

How does your company safeguard my information? 

 

 

We keep all data behind several walls of encryption to minimize the threat of a data breach. We also request your E-benefits account information to allow for quick and error-free analysis and submission of your claim. We ask for this information to totally eliminate errors, to submit your matter in a quick and efficient manner, and to also correspond on your behalf for time-sensitive matters. 

 

 

How will I know if I have been accepted as a client for VA claim services? 

 

 

We don’t accept every claim- only the claims that the evidence shows will yield you more money each month for the rest of your life. We accept clients by sending you an email that informs you that we have accepted you as a client. In that email, we explain the next steps and any applicable fees. 

 

 

What is your success rate?

 

 

We currently have a 98.2 success rate. We attribute this to focusing on cases that we feel confident that we can win and also to our extensive knowledge of VA ratings and what the VA will compensate. Our secret sauce is being former VA Raters, Veterans that also have 100% P&T, as well as nearly a decade of serving other Veterans. 

 

 

What types of claims do Seven Principles assist with? 

 

 

We assist with original claims (you have never filed a claim), claims for increase (your disability has worsened), secondary claims (one of your disabilities has caused another disability), and appeals (you disagree with the VA decision).

 

 

Can you obtain my medical records for me?

 

 

Yes. If you are not able to locate your medical records, we can obtain them on your behalf. 

 

 

Why should I use a consultant for my VA claim?

 

 Studies indicate that Veterans who use a consultant or consulting firm that specializes in VA disability see their annual average benefits nearly double compared to those who seek benefits alone or through a Veteran’s Service Organization (VSO) or free of charge resource.

 

 

How is my VA disability percentage determined?

 

VA disability benefits are awarded on a percentage rating level of disability. The VA has a “Rating Schedule” that determines the percentage awarded per the type of disability. Disability compensation ranges from 0% to 100%. Veterans with spouse or children “dependents” receive larger monthly compensation, and multiple ratings are totaled into a “Combined Rating”. 

 

 

What is the cost of services?

 

It depends on your current percentage. 

We don’t accept every claim. We only accept claims that will most likely yield a return to our client. 

If your claim is accepted by our firm we require a $500 retainer fee for our services. It’s a flat rate. It’s a huge saving as we customize each case and spend about 2-3 hours prepping the case and also the client. 

Once you have earned an increase, we require a flat rate performance fee if rated less than 30% of $2,500 upon increase to less than 90% or $5,000 if increased to 100%. 

If rated 30% or more that case carries 5 times the difference in monthly payments. 

If the dollar amount is greater than $5,000 we offer an optional 10-month interest fee payment structure.
