Legal Meets Practical: Accessible Solutions

VA VetBiz Applications

Applying for the VA’s VetBiz Verification program is all about preparation and a knowledge of the regulations. As an attorney who routinely assists veterans with the verification process, I am intimately familiar with the regulations governing the VetBiz Program, the common eligibility pitfalls, and how to avoid them. I also know how to minimize frustration and work for business owners.

The following is a list of services encompassed in my reasonable flat rate verification packages:

  • Perform a legal audit – I will check to make sure there are no issues with your business’ eligibility.
  • Address and mitigate/avoid potential issues that may prevent verification.
  • Draft any necessary changes to corporate documents to clearly demonstrate veteran ownership and control.
  • Prepare Letters of Explanation needed to explain or clarify documentation or business operation.
  • Assist in gathering the information necessary to apply for the VA VetBiz Verification Program.
  • Complete the electronic application and upload required documents.
  • Conduct most interface in responding to the VA’s requests for clarification or additional information (veteran must perform certain actions).

As a veteran business owner going through the process for the first time, it’s hard to know how to simplify the process while increasing your chances for verification. That’s where I come in.

Not only that, but if you’re not eligible, I’ll level with you, and let you know how come into compliance with the VA’s very specific requirements. In general, I do this before any agreement with me is signed; it’s not fair to lead someone down the garden path if I know they’ll end up in thorns.
