Are you a veteran or a surviving spouse of a Veteran?

There may be VA benefits available which you have not researched or you may have been denied in the past and your situation has changed.  These benefits can help you pay for long-term care.

Call our colleagues at the Center for Elder Veterans Rights directly for a no-risk interview concerning eligibility … 800-394-1250


The Center for Elder Veterans Rights, PC is the independent law office of attorney Kristen Vanderkooi.  CFEVR is solely focused on assisting elderly and disabled Veterans and their Families to access disability entitlements administered under Title 38 of the United States Code.  
We do not practice in any other field of law, be it elder, civil or criminal.  Our sole area of practice is administrative representation before the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Clients engage our services for two reasons: they want to know before a health care buying decision is made if (under Title 38 regulations) they qualify for VA disability benefits and if eligibility does apparently exist, assistance of a VA-accredited legal professional is preparing and prosecuting an effective benefit claim before the VA.
Our initial consultation is without fee or obligation. To obtain more information or ask specific questions pertaining to VA benefits or potential eligibility, call us at (615) 226-8600 or (800) 394-1250.

Here to help, always!

“May you be blessed

With the spirit of the season, which is peace,

The gladness of the season, which is hope,

And the heart of the season, which is love.”

We are truly dedicated to helping our clients, old and new, regardless of the time of day – or time of year.  During these joyous (and sometimes stressful) holidays, know that we are here to help with guidance and assistance, as needed.  Happy Holidays!
