#76 | Mary Brown-Edokpayi | How Do I Claim Veteran Benefits?



Mary Brown-Edokpayi is a Colorado-based Supervising Attorney with Cameron Firm, PC. She represents clients nationwide and is passionate about her work. Before working at Cameron Firm, PC, Mrs. Brown-Edokpayi served as an Aviation Electronics Mate (AE) in the United States Navy. During her honorable service, she earned the rank of 3rd Class Petty Officer.

Following her military service, Mrs. Brown-Edokpayi worked as a public defender in Colorado. There, she represented veterans facing unjust criminal charges. After six years as a public defender, she practiced at a private firm in Bethesda, Maryland, where she battled before the Court of Appeals for Veteran Claims (CAVC). Her success led her to join the National Veteran Legal Services Program, which allowed her to focus her advocacy on veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) claims.

As a veteran, she understands the unique challenges service members face when returning to civilian life. Mrs. Brown-Edokpayi has a wealth of experience dealing with CAVC benefits disputes and appeals and is prepared to assist you with any challenges you may face.
