Please do not hesitate to contact Gumps to help navigate the difficult process of filing a claim with the VA. Candice and Lindsey handled every aspect of this with professionalism and ease. I knew from my first correspondence with them, that I was in good hands. They worked hard on my case and I ultimately received a favorable decision from the VA. They have the expertise and knowledge to help you and I am happy to personally recommend them to you. I am extremely grateful to Gumps for fighting so hard for me. I could not have done it on my own.

Very professional, and down to earth staff. From beginning to end has been great to work with. I would definitely recommend this group to all Veterans seeking assistance. You won’t regret this Decision.
Excellent service. I didn’t think I would get much compensation after almost 20 years of trying but GUMP took on my case and got me 100% VA disability compensation. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Tabitha Yarbrough, Candice Bennett and the rest who’s helped me with my compensation. God Bless.

Candace Bennett and Lindsey Fordyce did an outstanding job in recently getting my award for me. Candace’s expertise made me comfortable in the entire process. From the moment I met her she assured me to stick with it as the evidence was more than adequate. It took awhile but well worth the wait, we all know nothing moves fast, but it was no fault of Gump’s. Would I use them again? ABSOLUTELY, I couldn’t have done it without them!!!

Honestly I am in Alaska and was referred to Gumps by another Vet. They still did an absolutely phenomenal job, I honestly have nothing bad to say about the work they did for me.

I can not say enough good thinks about this organization or it’s employees they really do care about us vets. Candace is the BEST this could have not even happened to me if it wasn’t for Candace and her great team. I tried for the longest time to draw disability from the VA and I got no results and I was going to quit even trying becauseI was spinning my wheels and getting nowhere and I thought I would give this great place one last try. I signed up with them and one day I got a call from Candace and she told me to get ready for a ride because she would not stop until I got 100 percent disability and that’s exactly what she did. Candace and this company has made a huge difference in my life a game changing difference in my life and I appreciate everything they have done for me. I can’t say thank you enough for what you have done for me. Thank You Robert Mclemore

Gump Legal was referred to my wife and I through another veteran, and my story is simple. Upon having my initial phone consultation, I was reassured that I would not lose my higher or current VA ratings. Following this phone consultation, I literally signed two forms. The 1st was a signature that Gump Legal was representing “me,” I felt valued. The 2nd was a signature releasing all my medical records while serving and/or since retirement which supported my claims. With some anxiety, I made all of my medical appointments and waited for a response while monitoring the eBenefits website. Within 6 months, I was notified that I was now 100% P&T.Yesterday was Veterans Day. My church service honored all Veterans in attendance with a standing ovation. The guest speaker was a veteran who has suffered injuries, both mental and physical. He told his story with his son in the audience. Needless to say, it was emotional.A Marine (a husband to a family of 4) in church was just as emotional and connected with what the speaker was trying to convey . My wife and I have referred many veterans to Gump VA Compensation Services and this Marine will be getting your contact information.The key is documentation, give them a chance, make the call as they are truly exceptional! You will never receive a “bill” from Gump Legal because their “payment” is a one-time % deduction from any backpay I/you will receive. They truly work for you!Lindsey and Candice, I truly thank you for your service!

If you are looking for experience and integrity, I recommend Gump VA compensation services as your agent. I have been blessed with Candace and Lindsay working on my claim. Five days ago I received word from the VA that I had been awarded a 70% claim. I recommend them to you, in fact, they will continue to represent me until I receive 100% disability.Jerry H, a very happy client.

I initially started my disability submission using a VSO (free service) in April 2021 (claim 1) for Sleep apnea, deviated septum, hearing loss, and tinnitus. I was awarded 20% disability (10% each for deviated septum and tinnitus, denied for hearing loss and sleep apnea). After numerous attempts to work with my VSO representative, he stopped communicating with me and did not take any action to submit an appeal.I then contacted 2 well known/advertised accredited disability attorney firms (found on YouTube, Facebook, and internet searches) who refused to take my appeal case. I finally went through the list of accredited attorneys listed on the VA website where I discovered Gumps and they accepted my case assigning a case manager (Victoria Taylor) and a claims agent (Candice Bennet). Shortly thereafter, Candice had a phone conference with me during which she identified several additional potential disability conditions that I had and she submitted a new claim (claim 2). After obtaining my case file from VA, Candice prepared legal arguments to challenge the VSO submitted claim 1 denials and she submitted a HLR for Sleep Apnea (approved in 24 days!!) and a supplemental appeal for my hearing loss (approved in 56 days!!). These successful appeal arguments increased my 20% disability to 60% (HUGE!).After denial of claim 2 and subsequent HLR and supplemental appeals, my award increased to 70%. At this point my expectations were exceeded. Since I had attained 70%, Candice then submitted a new TDIU claim (claim 3) and although it too was initially denied it did result in an increase of my disability to 80%. She immediately prepared an argument and submitted an HLR appeal which was successful and resulted in my TDIU award of 100% P&T. THIS IS BEYOND BELIEF! I’M ESTATIC.I highly recommend Gumps VA Compensation Services. They stay in touch and stay on top of your individual disability actions. Candice and Victoria – what a qualified and professional team; love you both. Candice’s appeal arguments are brilliant! Thanks for a job well done exceeding all my expectations!! Without y’all I would still be at 20%.

Excellent service from a team of earnest, hardworking individuals. Lindsey Fordyce did an outstanding job with status updates and through line claim support. Following my own enrollment with aforementioned team, I have referred innumerable Veterans to this organization for through line support with new and/or ongoing VA claims. Again and again, this team pulls through with outstanding results. It should likewise be noted that prior to contacting Gump’s VA Compensation Services, I leveraged VA VSOs & DAV with very little to no success. Engagement with the VA and DAV cost me three years, producing several denied claims and marginal service connections. Save yourself some time and start here!”Semper Paratus!”

Contacted Gumps Legal for assistance in an appeal I have with the VA. Assigned to Candice and Don and it’s been nothing but amazing. The team understands that issues aren’t always clear cut and a C&P exam or examiner might show something on the outside but a bit of digging, as they should, reveals service connection. Through this process, though, as my appeal sits in line, some other issues were resolved and added to my service connection which is fantastic.I’m looking forward to continue working with the team at Gumps in hopes that my appeal gets granted!
