Those who sustain injuries or who contract illnesses while serving in the military are often given access to disability compensation, housing assistance, aid and attendance services, and other disability benefits.
To learn more about the process of applying for these services and programs and whether you or a loved one could qualify for disability benefits, please contact an experienced Aurora veterans disability benefits lawyer who can advise you.Â

Applicants who submit claims for aid and attendance benefits may also need to provide proof of their disability in order to begin receiving assistance, such as a doctorâ€™s report, details about their day-to-day activities, and information about how their injury or illness affects their ability to complete certain tasks.Â
Veterans with service-related disabilities may also qualify for adaptive housing grants that can be used to modify or build a home that meets their specific needs. Covered projects include renovations of a veteranâ€™s kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, as well as the construction and installation of ramps, covered porches, handrails, grab bars, sliding doors, concrete walkways, and widened doorways. However, only those with certain disabilities are eligible for adaptive housing grants, including those who suffer from the loss or loss of use of more than one limb, blindness in both eyes, and severe burns.

I contacted Jim after my first denial for SS Disability. He was referred to me by a good friend who had retained him for her Disability odyssey as well. My Disability case was somewhat difficult because I didn’t have a nice, large cache of medical documentation to back up my claim. Despite this and other complications Jim helped me get through my hearing and I received a fully favorable decision from the Judge and now I am just waiting to start receiving my benefits,
James is an absolutely great lawyer. He fully understands his area of expertise, he’s quick to answer any questions with clear, concise directions on how to proceed. His insight into understanding how to navigate with many case laws and government agencies helped me as his client better understand the case law and it’s ways. James is quick to answer emails and phone calls, and made me feel very comfortable. I highly, highly recommended James for his case law specialties. A professional and true gentleman, even when I would ramble on with worry, James was very understanding and able to put my concerns at ease.

Jim is a good lawyer that helped us through a difficult purchase of our home(he also was the lawyer for the sale of our previous home).
We had quite a few issues with the details of the purchase with both the bank and the seller that James made sure were resolved as quickly as possible. When the selling lawyer would not respond to phone calls/emails Jim physically went to the lawyer’s office and made sure that the final details were pushed through.
I would recommend Jim as an attorney as he is very knowledgeable and thorough on the work that he does.
