  1. The government's initial responses and communications with Ed
  1. The various directions the cases could take in terms of structure, organization, leadership, etc. 
  1. Whether to use the Navy's claim form
  1. The issue of whether legacy claims can proceed in litigation without refiling the claim
  1. Why claimants need lawyers to navigate this process
  1. Batch filings
  1. Dealing with estate issues
  1. Will clients lose their VA benefits if they settle
  1. Analyzing the potential limitations of out-of-state lawyers appearing under the EDNC Local Rules, plus so much more!
