Krystal Klicko served for six years in the United States Air Force, where she worked in Aerospace Control and Warning Systems, managing and operating systems involving electronic warfare, surveillance, data link management, identification and weapons control. Klicko monitored air weapons and provided radar support in offensive and defensive air operations, spending time in Florida, South Korea, Japan, Arizona, New Mexico, and Hawaii, and deploying to Iraq.
Following her active military service, Krystal was unaware that she qualified for VA disability benefits until a friend spoke up on her behalf. Klicko now advocates for Veterans in the same position as a case manager at Berry Law.
“Advocacy can drastically change a Veteran’s life. A friend helped me when I didn’t think I was eligible for disability benefits, and it impacted my life tremendously. I joined Berry Law Firm to pay it forward to other Veterans.”
Krystal knows that each client who walks through the door is more than just a disability rating. A former military spouse herself, Klicko sees individuals for the sons, daughters, husbands, wives, or parents they are and approaches her work with the honesty, caring, understanding, dignity, and respect deserved of America’s warriors.
Veterans in her care benefit from Krystal’s previous experience working at the Veterans Benefits Administration, where she learned first-hand what goes into making eligibility determinations. She’s supported numerous Veterans and their families in their encounters with the VA, and understands the evidence required to appeal rating decisions. From gathering information relevant to a case, to pursuing reexamination requests for evaluation, Krystal’s determined and tenacious approach has secured the benefits that her clients earned.
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Maryland University College and graduated with distinction from Keller Graduate School with a Masters of Accounting. The United States Air Force recognized Krystal as Airman of the Quarter and bestowed her with two Air Force Achievement Medals.
When Krystal isn’t flighting for justice, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family jet skiing, camping, and playing sand volleyball. You can also find her traveling or attending festivals, concerts, and sporting events in her free time.
