On its website, the BIIA states the following: “If your case goes to hearing, you should consider hiring an attorney. The judge cannot act as your attorney and cannot represent your interests.”
Should you anticipate the need to hire an attorney for a hearing before the BIIA, please consider consulting with an attorney long before the appeal is filed. The more time an attorney has to review the claim file and discuss with you the particulars of your appeal, the better. Please call our office to schedule a free in-person consultation with one of our attorneys.
