Our Attorneys


Daniel A. Shawl

Managing Member

Dan is a VA-accredited attorney with a true passion for kicking the VA square in the teeth - no organization in the country deserves it more. While the VA is currently making small improvements to its system, it is a long way from treating every Veteran with the fairness and dignity that they deserve. In addition to VA Appeals, Dan can help you with your Estate Planning needs such as drafting a Will, a Trust, and Power of Attorney documents. If you need legal help with another matter check out the MVL Attorney Network - these are Attorneys that Dan has worked with before and highly recommends.

Dan currently serves as the Managing Member of Michigan Veterans Law. Dan graduated with Honors from Cooley Law school where he served as not only the President of the Military Veterans Law Student Association, but also the first Business Editor of the Homeland and National Security Law Review. He also holds a Business degree from Eastern Michigan University and formerly worked as a Financial Advisor.

Like his father before him, Dan is a Veteran of the US Navy, and currently serves as the Treasurer for a local Veteran-based non-profit - Boat4Vets. He is also a member of his local American Legion Post. As a veteran with multiple members of his family also having served, Dan has dedicated his legal expertise to helping his brothers and sisters in arms in the battle to get them the benefits that they deserve.

Julius Pulley

Staff Attorney

As Veteran of the US Navy who was discharged medically, I truly understand the process of having to fight my way through the VA Disability claims system and I completely understand the frustrations.


By combining my legal education with my personal knowledge and experiences, I am able to help my fellow Veterans through the VA’s intentionally difficult process.


Simply put, I’m an attorney who loves to serve our country’s warriors by eliminating their frustrations and helping to get them the benefits they have deserved all along.
