About Us

Mesothelioma Veterans Center

The Mesothelioma Veterans Center was created to provide information and assistance to veterans regarding treatment, clinical trials, and VA benefits for veterans suffering from asbestos illnesses. The MVC was founded by retired veterans and veterans advocates who have helped hundreds of veterans get approved for their VA benefits after developing mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer from their asbestos exposure in the military.

Our Team

Eric P.W. Hall (Capt RIANG)

Veterans Advocacy Director

Eric P.W. Hall (Capt RIANG) has always had a commitment to public service, enlisting in the United States Marine Corps following high school graduation. During his four years of service in the Marines, he developed strong leadership skills as he achieved the rank of Sergeant.

Following his time in the Marines, he attended college at the University of Rhode Island and carried forth his dedication to integrity and honor as he worked his way through law school. With the formation of a successful law practice, his devotion to his country and fellow soldiers remained. Mr. Hall is also a Captain in the U.S. Air Force Reserve where he serves as a JAG Officer in the R.I. Air National Guard.

His work at the Mesothelioma Veterans Center focuses on helping veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma to navigate the waters of VA. He helps veterans to receive benefits by walking them through the many forms and procedures required by the VA and to help them find veteran-friendly legal support.

Capt Hall is always available to work on behalf of other veterans:

It is our goal at the Mesothelioma Veterans Center to help veterans navigate the Department of Veterans Affairs so that they can get access to the services and benefits they’ve earned.  It is our duty to take care of our veteran family and I’m proud to continue to serve these family members long after their military service has ended.

Our Mission

No one gets left behind.  To that end, we strive to provide veterans diagnosed with asbestos illnesses the best information, advice and assistance we possibly can.  From filing for VA Disability Compensation to helping veterans find the best medical treatment, we never stop fighting.

Our Vision

Because veterans comprise the single largest group of Americans diagnosed with mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancers each year, they are the most affected, yet their needs are the most underserved.  There are many benefits available to veterans, which many overlook.  We envision a day when we are able to ensure that every veteran diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer is able to get the best medical treatment available and that they receive any and all VA benefits for which they are eligible.

Our Values

Honor, Integrity and Precision

Honor:  We live our lives by the same code of conduct with which we conducted ourselves as fighting men and women of the Armed Forces.  We shall never do anything that would bring dishonor to our organization, the military or ourselves.  We belong to one large fraternity made up of our “Brothers in Arms”.  As we did in the military, we will look out for each other so that our veterans can always count on us to have their back.

Integrity:  We will be truthful always.  We will be frank with every veteran or his or her family member.  We will provide advice that is founded on VA law and publication.  We never speculate.  We speak only of what we know to be true.  We will never be afraid to say “I don’t know, but I will go look it up for you”.

Precision:  Attention to detail is the cornerstone of our approach to each VA claim.  Every asbestos-related claim is different.  Therefore, we will ensure that we provide the veteran with the information and guidance that they need to ensure that their claim is complete, correct, and compelling.  If the veteran does not feel that we made the entire process easy to understand and stress-free to file, we haven’t done our job.

We are here to serve those who have served us, we can help you with:
