Every day the brave men and women of the American armed forces work hard to protect our rights and our freedoms. Unfortunately, many sustain disabilities and injuries as a result of their time in the service. The United States Census Bureau reports that 3.7 million veterans have service-connected disabilities. All veterans deserve their full benefits.

No matter what stage of the VA disability claims process you are currently dealing with, our Cedar Lake VA benefits lawyer is prepared to help. If you need guidance with the initial application (VA Form 21-526) we can help you put together all of the medical and occupational evidence that you need to present the strongest possible claim for benefits.
If your claim has already been denied or substantially underpaid, you have limited time to take action. You must file a Notice of Disagreement (VA-Form 21-0958). Our Cedar Lake veterans lawyer can help you with the filing a Notice of Disagreement, which is the first step in bringing a successful appeal.
If your claim is not approved after your NOD is reviewed, you have the right to bring your case before the Board of Veterans Appeals. This is done through the filing a form 9 (VA Form 9). If you are thinking about appealing your disability denial, you should be represented by an experienced veterans lawyer.

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.
