The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced that President Donald J. Trump recently approved the appointment of four new Veterans Law Judges to VA's Board of Veterans' Appeals. "Bringing on additional judges means the Board will be better staffed to conduct hearings and decide appeals properly in a timely manner," said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. "Combined with procedural changes under the Appeals Modernization and Improvement Act of 2017 [AMA] and the hiring of more than 200 additional Board attorneys, this translates into better and faster service for Veterans." For more information about the Board and its progress on appeals modernization, visit the VA Board of Veterans' Appeals website.
