According to data provided by the federal government, there are more than 3.7 million veterans living in the United States with a disability or medical condition that is directly related to their time spent serving in the American military. These veterans have earned their benefits. We need to provide for them.
Yet, in far too many cases, full and fair VA benefits are difficult to obtain. At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, our experienced Belleville veterans attorney works hard to protect the rights of veterans and their families in St. Clair County and throughout Illinois.
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) mandates that attorneys must have official accreditation to be able to represent current or former military members in VA benefits cases. Our founding lawyer, James R. Comerford, has the required authorization to handle VA benefits claims for veterans in Belleville, Illinois. Mr. Comerford has handled veterans disability cases involving a wide range of underlying conditions, including
According to information from the National Organization of Veteransâ€™ Advocates (NOVA), initial VA benefits claims can take up to six months to receive a decision. Should an initial claim be denied (or underpaid), then it can take up to an additional 24 months to get a full resolution in your case. For veterans in Belleville, IL, this is immensely frustrating. Worse yet, the VA benefits claims process is extremely complex. Delays are very common. If you make a minor mistake, your file can be held up for an extensive period of time. The VA is notorious for rejecting and underpaying wholly valid disability claims. To ensure that you or your loved one is able to obtain the full benefits that are owed, it is strongly recommended that you work with a qualified Belleville veterans lawyer. No matter what your issue is, whether it is tracking down the medical evidence to prove the extent of your disability, or filing an appeal for your benefits, your attorney will be able to help protect your rights.
At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, our Belleville veterans benefits lawyer has extensive experience representing Illinois veterans in VA benefits cases.

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.
