Customer Reviews

  •         "I am a Gulf War Vet that lived with my problems for many years. In 2013 i finally went to the VA for help and on advice from a very helpful VA employee I began filing claims. Everything i filed got flatly rejected. Frustrated i gave up and walked away. In 2016 i decided to try again but my appeal time had lapsed so I had to file new claims. on advice of another Veteran friend i sought out Chuck Pardue. I brought everything i had and was told they could not handle the appeal because my time to appeal had lapse but on the same day as the consult they sat down with me and helped me fill out the paperwork for a new claim ( same stuff) but refused to charge me for this advise and help. Their help resulted in a VA rating of 90 percent!!!!!!!!! That decision took about 9 months. There were a few items denied that i wanted to appeal so I went back to Pardue. This is when i was introduced to Dr. T.J. Seiter. Dr. Seiter went through my claims, health record and VA records then spent 16 hours with me talking and examining me. He found other things i had been living with for so long i considered them normal and helped me file new claims on those items and with my appeals. The new items took less than 60 days to get a rating decision on because of TJ's diligence and attention to detail on the claims. The end result is I am now rated at 100 percent with 2 special monthly compensations added on to it. I never could have achieved this with out the help of Chuck Pardue and Dr. Seiter. Both men are former Army and Navy officers and understand the issues veterans face both medically and in dealing with the VA. I cannot say enough about these two fine men and what their help has meant to my family."


  •         "Would highly recommend! Very knowledgable and helpful in guiding me in my pursuit. Took the time to explain my situation from the legal stand point. He gave me important information that I would need to file my claim when other attorneys I had spoke with did not. The best and most convenient part of our consultation is that I spoke with him the first time I called with no delays."

Providing Skilled Guidance Backed by Experience
Whether you are looking to change the characterization of your discharge, the grounds for the discharge or your reenlistment code, there are several reasons why it is important to retain an experienced military law attorney to help you pursue your discharge upgrade.

  • Choosing the appropriate board is a key step in the discharge upgrade process. Each service branch has a Discharge Review Board and Board for Correction of Military Records. You need a lawyer who knows which board is appropriate to hear your case.

  • Obtaining military records can be a challenge for anyone who has not done it before and is not familiar with this complex and sometimes frustrating process.

  • Familiarity with statutes of limitations is necessary to make sure your claim is filed on time or that a waiver is sought on the appropriate grounds.

  • We are highly familiar with all aspects of the military discharge upgrade process in all service branches. We have helped many clients achieve their goals through this process. You can rely on us to take the right steps at the right time on your behalf.


Advising You Based on Your Specific Goals
People seek discharge upgrades for different reasons. Some of our clients want to be eligible for education or VA benefits. Some want to reenlist but have reenlistment eligibility (RE) codes that prohibit them from active duty. Some feel like they were railroaded into administrative discharge as they got close to eligibility for length of service retirement.

We will listen to your reasons for seeking a discharge upgrade, review your records and propose a course of action that is appropriate for your specific circumstances and goals. Contact us to discuss how we can help you pursue a discharge upgrade.


Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your specific circumstances. We will represent you passionately, giving you the kind of help we would demand for ourselves if we were service members in legal trouble.
