ABSTRACT
The article discusses how a Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) member's case gets from the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board) to the Veterans Court with free legal representation offered by PVA. It states that PVA members and other claimants have the right to seek judicial review of Board decisions by the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, thus, PVA formed a committee to consider and decide whether to offer legal representation to them when the Board denied their claims for benefits.
