The simple answer is to get a letter from a psychiatrist. A person with severe PTSD is surely going to be under psychiatric care for that condition. The VA should cover it, no problem.
Now I have to address the Service Dogs of America issue. Organizations that sell fake certification over the Internet are a rip off. They take advantage of people with disabilities with legitimate needs for an emotional support animal or a service animal just to make a buck. A real certifying organization would have tested the dog and would be prepared to testify in court as to the dog's training and qualifications as a service dog. All that organization can swear to is they nicked your uncle for $40 (I hope it wasn't the organization that suckers people for $250 instead of $40).
Here's some additional information on emotional support animals:
In future, do not speak with either the HOA or their attorneys by phone. Keep it all in writing so you have a record of exactly what was said, by whom, and when. The two sites above offer some templates for you to draft your own letters requesting a reasonable accommodation. The first site (Service Dog Central) includes information on filing a complaint with Housing and Urban Development. The HOA may be correct about the documentation for your uncle's disability needing to come from a mental health professional. At any rate, it does seem to me to be the fastest, simplest, and least stressful solution is to simply see a psychiatrist or psychologist to get the letter.

The ADA does not apply to most housing. It covers public housing (owned by a government entity) but not much else. The correct law most often would be the Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA). So you wouldn't need an ADA lawyer, but a disability housing law specialist. But you might not need one at all. You have not yet exhausted your other options:
1. file a complaint with HUD.
2. file a complaint with your state's Human Rights Commission.
Often filing a complaint, which causes an investigation, is sufficient to get the landlord to reconsider their position. However, in order to file a complaint, the complainant will most likely be required to prove he is disabled and to prove that his dog is trained as a service dog. So I keep going back to needing to see that mental health professional any way you look at it.
If he has a second disability, such as deafness or spine damage, and the dog is individually trained to perform tasks to mitigate that other disability, he might make a claim that way. However, hearing and retrieving work wouldn't tend to justify the dog as a service dog unless his disability is the reason why he needs that kind of help.

It typically takes 18-24 months to fully train a service dog.
It is not uncommon for the landlord to require a letter from a specialist. As I mentioned, a person with PTSD severe enough to disable them should be seeing a psychiatrist. A letter from either a psychiatrist or a psychologist would be sufficient for a claim of disability due to PTSD. For deafness, the expert would be an audiologist and for a spine problem it would be an orthopedist. The VA has all of those available for our veterans. When they don't have an appropriate expert available on site, they will do referrals to other area experts. A friend of mine is an oncologist and was called in to work on a special case with a veteran because our local VA hospital didn't have the equipment needed to treat him properly. So he was treated at my friend's hospital instead. The VA still picked up the cost of his treatment.

The ADA is a federal law. The U.S. Department of Justice administers it, not individual states. It also doesn't apply in this case because the ADA only covers public housing (like housing projects owned by the government). The ADA's primary coverage is for public accommodations (businesses a person might patronize), not housing. The correct law is most likely the FHAA, which means filing a complaint with HUD.

Can Anyone Guide Me To A Direction Where I Should Find A Good Attorney?
I Been Surfing The Web But All I See Is Injury Attorney And Didn'T Know If It Was The Right One
What do you expect an attorney to do for you. Already you have stated 2 facts. #1 you did not have insurance at the time so all accidents even if caused by another driver are your fault (nation wide law). 2# police report puts none at fault giving 50/50 damage responsibility. But since you had no insurance it then becomes 100/0. In most cases you are gonna have to pay for the damages out of pocket. If you don't the insurance company may take you to court.

How To Setup A Legal Will?
I Do Not Know Too Much About Wills. I Know There'S Wills Called Living Will, Last Will And Testament. But, We Live In Iowa. And, My Mother Wants To Set Up A Will, So Everything Goes To Me And I Make All Decisions, And That I Get Legal Custody Of My Sister. How Do We Go About Doing This, Without The Use Of A Lawyer? I Know Theres Some Forms Out There That You Can Get That You Have A Notary Public Sign. But, What Are Those Forms Called? And, What Kind Of Will Are We Looking At? And, How Do We Go About Writing One Up? Sorry About All The Questions, But It'S Kind Of Important To Us. Thanks.
There are Legal Will kits and Living Will kits, but they are not recommended. If the form is filled out wrong, it becomes invalid anyway. More importantly, a lawyer can better analyze a situation to figure out what you need: these kits cannot. As well, for an experienced lawyer, it is an easy contract. They are cheaper than people think.
Crash course: a Last Will and Testament will decide the distribution of assets when a person dies. A Living Will takes into account if someone cannot make decisions for themselves (incapacitated).
Seriously, at least enquire with a law office before getting a kit. Too many people have been burned by them.
