Associate Achieves Pro Bono Success on Behalf of U.S. Veteran

  • Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox

Graham Phero recently achieved success in a pro bono matter on behalf of a U.S. Army veteran suffering from a hearing loss disability as a result of his service.  Mr. Phero’s client had been denied increased benefits at both the VA Regional Office and at the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.  The veteran then appealed his claim to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.  Mr. Phero represented him before this court and argued against the Board’s decision.  Counsel for the Office of Veteran Affairs did not dispute Mr. Phero's arguments and agreed to a joint motion for remand to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.  The veteran is now able to present additional evidence and it is likely that his application for increased benefits will be granted.
