Seasoned Litigator Representing Veterans and Service members in VA Appeals and Physical Evaluation Boards in Cleveland, Ohio, and Across the United States

Navigating the challenges of Veterans Affairs appeals for veterans and Physical Evaluation Boards (“PEBs”) for current servicemembers requires a combination of experience, training, and savvy. Ryan Sears has acquired these skills over his years of service both in and out of the military, representing hundreds of servicemembers and veterans in their efforts to receive fair treatment from the VA and Department of Defense. Ryan’s experience with VA Appeals, Informal and Formal PEBs, and petitions to the services’ Review Boards enable him to zealously and effectively advocate for his clients at every phase of their case. VA appeals and PEBs are more than just simply disability hearings but rather evaluations of both a client’s medical issues and often their military service. Fortunately, Ryan has an extensive knowledge of how these processes work and what arguments can succeed for his clients to earn them their rightfully earned benefits through their years of military service.

Military disabilities are not only the medical condition that impairs the veteran or servicemember: they are lifestyle-altering ailments. Explaining how these ailments impair a client is every bit as important as what condition the client suffers from. While there are many qualified disability attorneys out there, few have the extensive training and actual time litigating in front of the VA and DOD on behalf of veterans and servicemembers as Ryan. Ryan’s skill in obtaining successful results for his clients has led to the Department of Defense asking him to help train new active duty military attorneys how to litigate their cases before the PEB and VA.

Equally importantly, Ryan understands not all military injuries are visible to the naked eye. He has successfully argued countless times about the severe impact of PTSD, TBI, Major Depressive Disorder, and other mental health conditions that often go untreated for long periods of time. Constructing a successful record, not just with medical records, but with service records as well is key to winning a client’s case, and Ryan understands well what this entails.
