He finally has hope for The future but his health is so bad I’m not sure he will live long enough to enjoy the extra money. he has bought a car that he can drive his electric scooter into + have more mobility + he has money in his pocket to do whatever he wants to do He is a conservative person so he will not waste the money. So happy to see him happy, thank you!"

I just want to say how pleased we are with the services we received from Gumps VA compensation. Mark was immediately granted 90 percent disability after Gumps submitted all the paperwork. The process was efficient and easy for us. The staff at Gumps was always available for any and all questions that we had and very nice and friendly to us. We would highly recommend them to any and all veterans that are struggling with the VA to reach a compensation decision.
Thanks again Gump!
Mark and Anna Poston
I appreciate what your firm has done for me, and my disability. Before your firm got involved, I was unsuccessful in getting more than 60 percent service connection. However because of your legal efforts with handling my case/claims, I was recently awarded a full 100 percent disability. This would not have been possible without your help
My name is Charles Minor, I just want to say how please I am with the work Lindsey Fordyce and Candice Bennett did on my behalf. I would highly recommend them.

I would like to thank Allen and his crew for a fantastic job in getting my compensation.

I’ve always heard horror stories of how vets would go through programs and would end up getting the runaround after paying thousands of dollars! But with GUMPS VA they are with you every step of the way! I’m am grateful for all they have done and how the help me get 100%! And I didn’t have to pay thousands of dollars! If you’re a vet, go with Gumps VA!
Allan, This award decision has been a long time process. You had faith in me from our initial contact years ago. You kept my claim process moving along even though I was discouraged at times. You knew what to do and when to do it. You and your staff did an outstanding job in the success of receiving this award for my condition that changed my life over 20 years ago. Thank you for everything you and your staff have done. I am grateful for the hard work you have put into this claim for the success that it is. I hope to keep in touch with you and your staff, especially Don, in the future. Sincerely

As for my testimonial Allen Gumpenberger saved my life he did something that no one else could do for me others had tried but failed I am forever indebted to him. He cut through the red tape went straight for the objective and wouldn’t take no for an answer he will always be my man and God bless him and his organization

I would like to thank you once again for your success in the approval of my recent award decision. When we last spoke, you were pursuing other issues on my behalf. This decision took a long time and there were many denials by the VA concerning my cancer.
I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in July 2000. I was operated on shortly thereafter for cancer tumors.
I took sick leave and used vacation pay at the Postal Service through 2001. During this time, there were more cancer surgeries. There were BCG treatments and several operations to try to stop the tumors. In October 2002 I had to have the removal of my bladder, prostate and some small intestine. Many rounds of chemotherapy followed. I did not plan to retire, however I could not support my wife and family on no pay and having to buy my health care benefits in full from the USPS.
I was retired from December 2001 – April 2006 and went to work for the Town of Watertown, as the Deputy Fire Marshal.
After reading over the award decision, I don’t understand why the VA did not go back to when I was first diagnosed with cancer in 2000. The award only went back to August 2005. I realize there is much I do not understand how the VA arrives at the decisions they do, this is not to be taken as disappointment in what you and Allen have accomplished. My gratitude is overwhelming.
My present evaluation is 90% based on 60% for loss of a major organ, 10% for tinnitus, 70% for PTSD, I believe these are correct. In the near future, I was told that I will need reconstructive surgery for reposition of the stoma.
Thank you once again for the help and also for being there when I needed you.
Should you need to contact me, (203) 509 1790 is the best number to use.

Hello Angel, so glad to hear from you. Mr. Held and crew really worked hard and tirelessly on my behalf. Of all my years, I've never had anyone work so hard on my behalf. I can finally start putting my financial life back together. This is the real " Dream Team". Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

I contacted Gumps VA compensation Services after a friend recommended me to do so. I spoke to a representative and she listened to my concerns about health issues that started to occur after my service. They provided me with the information and documentation to fill out and from there they took care of everything. I truly am surprised what they were able to do for me and now I have the benefits that I was originally denied. They truly worked hard for me finding scientific studies to prove my military related health issues. I would like to thank them for everything they have done for me and my family.
From a veteran point of view. We need people like Mr. Held and Ms. Ashley because they care, about us veterans, that put their lives on the line to put a blanket of freedom over our country. There are the ones that are the heroes because they make sure that our veteran and their families are taken care of. I was just a sailor going to sea for twenty (20) of service. When got time for me to retire from the Navy, I did know what was going to happen and how I was going to feed and take care of my family. I had bills to pay, and I was in a lot of pain from the problems that I got from being in the Navy. The only money that was coming in at the time was my military retirement and that was not a lot. Mr. Held and Ms. Ashely help me get 100% disability and it put me in the position to pay my bills and feed my family. Hero - a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Mr. Held and Ms. Ashely are heroes and they meet all the qualities of a hero. Thank you, Mr. Held and Ms. Ashely for being my hero

Good Morning Angel and Victoria,
Upon contacting Gump's Legal I was hesitant from starting another system to get my VA disability (ies) approved.

Angel Bolen is my intake specialist and walked me through the process. Stayed with me one the phone as I messed up many forms and corrected my errors (thank God the internet doesn't show white out). I was assigned a case manager, Victoria Taylor, an attorney, Candace Bennett, and a new outlook on "how to" process VA claims. Next is my case manager, Victoria Taylor walking me the follow up from intake, reviewing documents, asking questions and completing more forms. My verbiage, we didn't have to wait for me to type the responses. We'd still be waiting for the keyboard to cool down from me "TAPPING" the keys (LOL).
My initial contact with my attorney was scheduled within 60 days of initial contact, however due to circumstances out of our control we rescheduled for 60 days later (now 4 months from initial contact. CAndace Bennett changed my perspective on how I viewed the process and brought me in-line with how the VA processors view the process. Within 20 days of phone contact with my attorney, I had two C&P exams to attend, 60 days from initial contact with my attorney the portion of claims input & processed have been approved.
We are still in process with the last portion of claims, however this is good. We are moving forward one step at a time and I have been in for two more C&P exams which came out favorable for me according to the examiners. We are just waiting for the VA to process and return their findings.
I have recommended Gump's Legal to friends and would highly recommend Gumps Legal to veterans struggling to get their disabilities approved through the VA.

Thank you Gump's Legal.

they have been working to get me what I needed for a while now , They never gave up and they are still going They did get me to 100% good groupe to have on your side.
Don Warren is the absolute best. I really had no high hopes of getting anything from the VA. The process takes forever. But Don, bless him, stayed with my claim and made sure it had every piece of paper required. He followed through for three years and kept in contact with me every step of the way. His persistence paid off! The claim was finally settled and will make a huge difference for the rest of my life!!! I can’t recommend Don Warren any more highly! He is also any an amazingly caring person!!! God Bless him!
from a 23yr retired Navy man i had a hard time finding what to to but Janet Sapio helped me in every way she could and i received what i was suppose to from the VA she worked so hard even tho she and her company was not receiving any pay for my first claim they did me right and she was awesome she called me many time just to check on me and see if i need anything she could do. if you take anything from this Janet Sapio was one of the hardest working people i have ever had the pleasure of working with and she really cares more than most people would. i am just running at the mouth now but she is great ask for her you will never be on the back burner with her.
Wonderful service! We appreciate all they do to help veterans and us! They have a true heart to serve and they can really help you out!
Response from the owner: Our apologies Ryan, we will be in touch this week.
Thank you!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the 5 star Stevie!
I would like to thank the team at GumpsVA Compensation Services for assisting me with my VA Compensation Benefits, They helped me in a way that I never had. Also I would like to give a special thanks to Ms.D for her hard work, she has been a God sent. I will always be thankful for your service Ms.D. Thanks again. Patrick Evans.
Response from the owner: Thank you Patrick, great working with you!
Excellent and timely service. Thank you so much Gumps VA! Highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thank you Hannah!
Amazing work. They are the best. I see reviews of people complaining of no contact which I understand, yes contact is sporadic but they are really working hard in the background. I left them do their thing and it worked perfectly for me. It took only 2 years to go from 0% to 100%.
Response from the owner: Thank you Jimmie for the kind words!
The best out there! Thank you for all you do for our veterans! You change lives! Ashley H. is amazing!
Response from the owner: Ashley said you were great to work with too!
Gumps VA Compensation Services is the best!! Allen Gumpenberger and his staff have worked tirelessly to seek and receive benefits for, in my case, a surviving widow. My phone calls have been met with the utmost professionalism, knowledge, kindness, and, very important, patience. Hats off to Janet Sapio! She has always been available to answer questions and guide me along the way with that same kindness and patience. Thank you all for your service and your caring.
Response from the owner: Thanks Barbara, glad we could work with you!
My sincere thanks to Alan and Janet for the hard work and caring they gave to my difficulties in dealing with my case. Job well done
Response from the owner: Glad we could assist Dennis!
Thank you Gumps for helping me to get what I was denied for so long. Candice worked hard in the background with my appeals and higher level reviews. Anytime a Vet is having trouble with getting what they are owed, I send them to Gumps!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the 5 star Jermaine!
This law firm came highly recommended to me. But I chose not to use them at first. And I am so happy that I came to my senses. They are so easy to work with. And have made my claim stress free. I gave them my information, they said we got it. If we need you, we will give you a call. They keep me up to date, with additional claims they have placed on my behalf. And yes, they look for everything you deserve. They don’t just file claims for commissions!!! The award I just got, I never put in a claim for. Because I didn’t know I could. I am so great full for Gumps VA Compensation Service. And strongly encourage all veterans that are fighting VA, and getting nowhere to give them a call. I couldn’t be happier. And it has only been 4 months. Thank you Gumps team!!!!!!!
Outstanding results, def recommend!
Response from the owner: Good working with you Joe!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the 5 star Rafael!
Efficient and wonderful customer/client service!!!
Response from the owner: Glad we could help you Carl!
Gumps VA compensation services took my claim in April of 2022 and had me my 100% in less than a year, which is the fasted claim that I have ever heard of. I met Janet, by chance, in the Food City store. She asked me if I was a veteran and explained to me who she worked for and what they did. She did not pressure me, but gave me a card and told me to think about it and give her a call if I decided to persue my claim with them. After thinking about it I contacted her and give her all the info she needed. Janet and her team took it from there and got my claim settled in a very short period of time. Janet and her team were very professional. polite, and kept me well informed of what they wer e doing and what I needed to do. I appreciate them very much and would not hesitate to use them again if needed. Great job to Janet and her team. Thank you very much. James
Response from the owner: Glad we could help you get to 100% James!
Response from the owner: Glad we could help you David!
Unlike many other veterans advocate organizations, Gumps either picks up when you call or returns your call within 24 hours.They know their stuff and help assist you make an overwhelming process less overwhelming and simple.They are number 1 in their class! Call them today.
Response from the owner: Certainly one of our primary goals is to have a reputation of being accessible. We aim to provide the best representation to every veteran and communication is a key component of that effort. Thank you for the review and feed back.
I was having problems trying to file for my Disability. I submit my claims using help from the VA. All my claims were denied. I heard from a good friend about Mr. Gump’s VA Service. With his help I am now 100%.
Response from the owner: Hi Refugio, glad that we managed to help you get 100%.
Mr. Donald Warren was the best. I highly recommend Gump Va to any veteran who is in need of getting a higher disability. Mr Warren went above and beyond to take care of me and I am thankful to be part of his team
Response from the owner: Hi Raul, Mr. Warren greatly appreciates your kind words. Glad that we were able to help.
Attorney Gumpenburger and his staff went above and beyond with my claim. I, as the client did research about my case, and they helped me get my relevant information processed quickly. I also work with clients as a Post Service Officer and it’s nice to see that Gump’s Legal has the same work ethic. They will work twice as hard as you do to get the best results possible. I understand that Gump’s Legal has many clients and some things take awhile to process.My recommendation is: Gump’s Legal will work twice as hard as the client works to see your claim through.
Response from the owner: Hi Daniel, glad that we managed to help with your claim. Thanks for recommending us.
I was blown away by their compassion and competency in assisting me.
I recently received notice from the Board of Veterans Appeals, Evidence Intake Center. Conclusion of Law – Entitlement to Service Connection is GRANTED. It was a long and hard fight by Gumps V.A. Claims Services, LLC. Conroe, Texas. Compensation – Declined, Declined, Declined. Down to the wire and only one chance left and the final decision was up to me. Did I Hesitate, YES. Anxiety was running high. Then I thought about what I had always said in times of worry or stress – Never Quit or Give Up and if there’s a chance Take It. Bingo! That was the one that was GRANTED. I’m still on Cloud 9. I’m very grateful to Attorney Allen Gumpenberger and his team of lawyers, especially Janet Sapio, Case Manager. In matters of VA Compensation There is None Better.
Response from the owner: Hi Dana, the team at Gumps greatly appreciate your kind words! Glad that we managed to help!
Response from the owner: Hi Henry, thanks for the five-star review.
Response from the owner: Hi Tabitha, thanks for the five-star review.
Great services, response time overall, enjoy working with Don Warren who answer my many questions in a properly timely manner.
Response from the owner: Hi Samantha, glad that you like working with Don Warren.
Response from the owner: Hi Gary, thanks for the five-star review.
I am a retired army veteran that fought with the VA for 3 years on my own. After signing on with Candice, I received my first increase within a few months. She advised me on some possible new claims and appealed every decision until I was eventually granted Individual Unemployability with a permanent and total status. She is very knowledgeable about how the VA works and what needs to be done to get veteran’s all that we are entitled to. Dealing with the VA is not a pleasant experience, Candice & Lindsey made the process more bearable. I highly recommend them to any veteran thinking of going for service connection with the VA.
Response from the owner: Hi Steve, Candice and Lindsey greatly appreciate your kind words. Thanks for your service.
Fantastic experience! My case manager is Don Warren who has been very helpful in achieving my goals. These guys are very professional and extremely knowledgeable. Do yourself a favor and stop looking elsewhere. I’m very happy with the outcome.Kai
Response from the owner: Hi Coach, glad that Don was helpful in the process of achieving your goals.
Gumpslegal has always came through for me. They are polite, professional, compassionate and knowledgeable, also the team knows how to get the job done, I don’t understand all the legal mumbo jumbo. However, they do. I also refer fellow veterans to gumpslegal to get them the benefits they earned. When the VA says no, gumpslegal says yes! I’m 110% satisfied with their work and the results they produced for me.
Frustrated, Lost in the system, no true help with other VA services for years. I finally decided to call Gumps VA Services which was recommended by a friend and veteran. Best move I made in years regarding my VA benefits claim. The medical conditions that I deal with do not help me to be organized and they understood that. Gumps VA staff took over and turned my case into a successful outcome. I am grateful and will recommend their services to every veteran I know that needs assistance with their benefits.
Response from the owner: Hi Marvin & Alexis Lopez, we are glad that we were able to help and get you a successful outcome.
Hey Family sorry for taking so long to get back in touch but l have had it up to the moon,with the Department of Defense and the V.A.HEALTH SYSTEM, l never in my life believe that I would be treated this way just like so so many others as we sever and honor this USA military.

Janet was a good listener and made it easy to talk about my case. The firm did everything and more for me especially when I wasn’t in agreement with the VA’s decision. They did what they could and refiled what they had to. I thank them for all their hard work.
