“Having the ability to go talk to a fellow veteran that will be able to represent me and has been where I’ve been – has literally walked the streets in Iraq that I walked – and now is able to convey the message that I need to convey, on my behalf, is critical.” - Chet Bennetts, Iraq War Veteran
“Alexandra Grant and Mike Koberlein have been exceedingly helpful in my struggles with the VA. I thank them wholeheartedly for their service to Veterans.”
– Steven Bickel PA-C, USN Disabled Veteran
“Mike and the Berry law Firm has helped me get the proper rating with the VA. I could not have made it without the help I got from the Berry Law Firm and all of its fantastic people.”
– Willie Alexander
“Seen a reference to the Berry Law Firm in a post on a Facebook page and went to their website and filled out the request for information, received a call the next day. After answering a number of questions and me asking many more, decided to have them represent me in filing my denied claims with the VA. Received a contract package explaining what they would be doing in representing me, it also explained what was needed from me. Very straightforward, no ifs ands or buts provided in layman’s language. The costs involved in them representing me was fully explained and is quite simple as it is set by law and explained in the original information package.
The first claim was for an increase in rating for PTSD, from 30 to 70%, a second claim was for Sleep Apnea which was denied because I and a state VSO had made it secondary to PTSD. Through the knowledge of the Berry firm they have filed a DRO with all the legal jargon and insuring that the “Ts” are crossed and “Is” are dotted.
I feel very confident in my receiving a positive resolution to my claim thanks to the dedicated lawyers and support staff at the Berry Law Firm.”

“Thank you to John Stevens Berry Law Firm for helping me get the favorable rating from the V. A. Benefits Section.”
“Thank you to everyone at Berry Law Firm for everything that they have done for Stan. He is very appreciative!!”
“As a Disabled Vietnam Veteran, working with the Veterans Administration can be overwhelming. We as Disabled Veterans just do not know how to deal with the bureaucracies of Government Agencies. On our own we go one direction and just the difference between one word on a VA Form can cause no action or rejection of a Compensation and Pension claim. So we have to turn to Veterans Agencies or Law Firms to help us with the proper direction.
I was given a low Disability Rating 1996 and for over 17 years, not really knowing the value of using help to get the proper rating, I fought alone including trying an unsuccessful appeal to accomplish.
After getting again what I felt as an improper Disability Rating I gave it a lot of thought and contacted a Law firm out of Indiana for help. After a few months I called for an update on where my action was going to submitted. Seems the Lawyer that was going to take my case left and they lost my file. I was done with them.
So I did some research and found the most recommended firm was Barry Law Firm. I was paired up with Jerusha Hancock. I was so Lucky. I am not an easy client. I like to talk and I like to know what is happening with my case. Jerusha always took the time to keep me updated.
After it seems to me that the VA was not moving on my case Jerusha recommend filing suit against the Local VA Office and The Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Within 10 days of filing I was called by the VA to set up a Compensation and Pension Exam, which by chance I did the very next day. Then 3 Weeks later my case way completed. I received everything I was deeming due. I am now rated at 100% IU and each and every joint is rated higher than before.
Because of Jerusha Hancock I am receiving the proper compensation that affords me the opportunity to buy a new home making my level of living bearable even with my disabilities. She always found time to answer my emails or call when I did not understand what was happening. She is the reason I can survive day to day now. With her recommendations I still have an open Cases and Appeals. She is trying even harder to get me elevated to receiving even more compensation, what a fantastic Job. Highly Recommend giving her a chance with your Claims.
Thank you for all your help.”
