No, you do not need an attorney. In fact, most attorneys are not experts in EEOICPA policies and procedures and are unable to provide the type of knowledgeable insight and expertise necessary for a fast and successful filing. Attorney fee structures often provide for “exceptions,” which drive your actual cost/fees significantly higher than 2% of your award—which is the only payment you will ever make to MD VIP 365, and only after you have received compensation.
