14.15. Further Appeals

Either the claimant-appellant or the Secretary can appeal an unfavorable CAVC decision to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and, after that, to the United States Supreme Court. Appeals to these courts are significant and expensive actions that need to be carefully considered. For those reasons, VETSFIRST does not recommend claimants undertake such appeals without competent legal advice and representation.
