How Representing Veterans Changed the Way I Practice Law

Vol. 35 No. 1

Chris Attig served in the U.S. Army from 1993 to 2004. After graduating from South Texas College of Law in 2003, he dedicated his legal career to representing veterans. In 2006 he founded, the largest self-help tool for veterans seeking to file and prove their own VA disability claims. At Attig | Steel, PLLC, he represents clients at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. In his spare time, he can be found with his three sons or running long-distance, recently as an athlete ambassador for the National Down Syndrome Society.


I’ve spent the last ten years of my legal career helping veterans battle the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for compensation for their service-related disabilities. It has truly been a rewarding ten years: every day I get to see how the law—or a lawyer—can change a life in the blink of an eye.
