Francis Jackson, a founding partner at Jackson & MacNichol,  is one of the handful of lawyers who met to organize NOVA, the National Organization of Veterans Advocates, in 1993.  Mr. Jackson had one of the earliest cases at the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and has handled hundreds of cases at the Court since that time.  He uses his extensive experience in VA law to get justice for veterans.

By focusing only on disability law, we’ve become extremely knowledgeable in the field. We use our knowledge and understanding of the law to help win you the Veterans Benefits you need to turn your life around. Our goal is to help you every step of the way. From the filing process to appeals, your VA disability attorney will provide the guidance needed.
