CAVC Appeals

The Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) provides Veterans with five options on what to do when you receive a Board denial. In our experience there is only ONE reasonable option—appeal the BVA decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals to Veterans Claims (CAVC).


Appealing a BVA denial to the Court makes sense because:

  • CAVC judges do not work for VA (every other decision-maker up to this point was a VA employee)
  • CAVC judges are generally sympathetic to Veterans’ issues. Historically, the Court sends back over 70% of BVA decisions based on mistakes
  • The Court’s response is quick—generally 8-10 months. The Court does not permit VA to drag its feet through the process
  • A favorable resolution at the Court (either by a judge’s decision or through a Joint Motion for Remand) provides instructions to the Board on the next steps of your claim

At Bergmann & Moore, we aggressively represent veterans and their families at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims at no cost to the veteran.
