NOVA asked Ms. Hill to come back and present on VA issues to advocates from across the country.

On March 10, 2016, Sara Kathryn Hill, of Hill & Ponton, presented at the National Organization of Veterans Advocates’ (NOVA) biannual seminar. Ms. Hill’s presentation, which opened the three day event, focused on a global understanding of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and how a claim for service connected compensation works. For over 90 minutes, Ms. Hill detailed the service connected compensation claim and appeal processes for the more than 200 advocates at the seminar.

“It is always a pleasure presenting to NOVA. I’m so passionate about representing my veterans but I know that I can’t represent all veterans who need help with their claims. So I love teaching other advocates how to best represent veterans. It give me a feeling that I’m helping more vets this way.”

Hill & Ponton is a disability law firm serving veterans nationwide. For the last three decades, the firm has helped thousands of clients all over the country. The firm specializes in VA disability compensation cases, with an emphasis on toxic exposure claims — such as Agent Orange — PTSD claims, TBI claims and Individual Unemployability claims.

“I've been teaching veterans how to understand the VA Claims Process for years; it's tough to break down the basics and explain the VA to new advocates,” said Chris Attig of "Sara gets she shared her knowledge and gave new advocates the tools they need to start cracking the VA disability compensation code."

The National Organization of Veterans' Advocates is a not for profit educational membership organization incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1993. NOVA is a national organization of attorneys and other qualified members who act as advocates for disabled veterans. Its goal is to provide excellent representation before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, to veterans who have disability claims against the government resulting from their service as members of the armed forces.

Ms. Hill has limited her practice to representing veterans. She focuses on complex medical issues that require in-depth research and opinions from medical experts. She has presented on veterans’ benefit issues numerous times from Portland, OR to Pittsburg, PA.

“I enjoyed Sara’s presentation. I’ve been practicing VA law for some years now but it is nice to see a different perspective on the claims flow process,” said Gregory Rada of “She took a complicated process and broke it down into easy to digest steps.”
