Ron McConnell


Case Manager

Ron is a 21-year retired Army veteran who served from 1981 to 2003 as both enlisted and officer.  During his enlisted time, he worked as a medic and a signals intelligence analyst.  As an officer he worked as a Telecommunications (Signal) officer until he retired. 

After military retirement, Ron worked as a Department of the Army civilian working at the U.S. Army - HQ, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).  After this he worked at the U.S. Air Force – U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) until his retirement from civil service in 2020.

Ron’s passion for assisting veterans came about as he was working through the myriad of bureaucratic hoops for his own disability claims and learning of the difficulties his fellow veterans had. Ron leverages his medical knowledge to assist K. McConnell Legal to develop disability claims for veteran clients with the goal of helping them gain the maximum VA benefits they deserve.
