    An Introduction to Veterans Law:
    What You Need to Know to Become Accredited

    Kent Eiler, Esq. Art Gage Law
    Amy Odom, Esq., Chisholm Chishom and Kilpatrick
    John V. Tucker, Esq., Tucker Law Group

    November 3, 2021
    1:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. ET*


    Join three expert practitioners on a journey through the basic tenets of veterans law.  Each presenter will spend 1.25 hours covering important concepts required for VA accreditation.  These topics include representation before VA, claims procedures, basic eligibility for VA benefits, the right to appeal, disability compensation, dependency and indemnity compensation, and pension.  While geared towards those seeking VA accreditation, it is also an excellent refresher for novice practitioners!
