CAVC attorney Chris Attig is one of nation’s leading advocates for veterans.
Mr. Attig is one of the few attorneys for veterans who actually wore the uniform; he has seen, firsthand, the devastation that the VA’s legal and medical malfeasance can wreak on a veteran’s family.
Mr. Attig served in the U.S. Army Field Artillery, receiving many awards including the parachutist badge.
He attended U.S. Army Ranger school, and because of his tenacity, professionalism, and esprit d’corps, was recruited for U.S. Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection. Mr. Attig declined the opportunity, ultimately dedicating himself to serve his brother and sister veterans through the law.
Mr. Attig focuses on applying his skills at appellate advocacy before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and, as of 2017, the United States Supreme Court.
Mr. Attig has prepared numerous briefs to appellate courts.
He has orally argued cases on behalf of veterans before the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
He remains the only law student in his law school’s history to have served as a law clerk to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Texas.
Mr. Attig is known for both his meticulous and thorough record review and his dogged pursuit of constitutional due process and equal protection rights for veterans battling the VA.
