“I served in the Air Force from 1965-1969 during the Vietnam conflict where I was unknowingly subject to Agent Orange and other wartime side effects. Upon discharge, I tried many times to navigate the VA claims and appeal process with no success. After 45 years of unsuccessful attempts, I gave up.

Then I was introduced to Kristine Maher with Graydon Law Firm. After a few meetings with Kristine, we were able to retrieve my records and determined that the VA had lost my appeal for 3 years. To make a long story short, Kristine, along with her associates at Graydon, professionally and flawlessly pursued my claims and appeals with outstanding results. I could not have done it without Kristine and her team, and I could not be happier.

She sincerely cares for her Veterans’ welfare and tries to get them all that they deserve. Recommendations with the highest regard.”
