One of the new options provided under the Veterans Appeals Modernization and Improvement Act (AMA) is the Higher-Level Review (HLR). Adam and Julie will discuss the regulatory underpinnings of this option and how to successfully present an HLR to the agency. They will cover the proper forms and procedures, analyze when filing an HLR is the best option, and address whether to seek an informal conference. Using examples from their practice, Julie and Adam will provide tips on framing your argument, dealing with agency hurdles in getting the conference scheduled, and conducting the informal conference.
