The Department of Veterans Affairs provides our nation’s veterans with access to healthcare services, including healthcare coverage for the disabilities they face related to injuries they suffered while serving in the military.
Sometimes, veterans’ claims for these benefits are denied despite the filers having legitimate disabilities and medical needs. In other cases, veterans and their loved ones are unable to access the amount of compensation they actually need to cover their healthcare needs and other disability-related needs, like benefits for spouses of disabled veterans. If you are facing challenges accessing the VA benefits you qualify for, work with an experienced VA benefits attorney to pursue them.
There are many disabilities that can render a veteran unable to work full-time or even unable to work at all. The Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes many specific disabling conditions and provides veterans facing them with disability benefits. These conditions include, but are not limited to:
A condition must be related to a veteran’s service in some way for him or her to recover VA benefits for it, but the condition did not have to be directly suffered while serving. Service-aggravated conditions can also qualify a veteran for VA disability benefits.
You do not have to wait until your claim is denied to work with a VA benefits attorney to file and pursue it. By working with an attorney from the outset, you can guarantee that your claim is in compliance with the VA’s claim requirements and that you have the necessary documents to support your claim.
There are numerous reasons why a claim for VA benefits can be denied. These include:
When a VA benefits claim is denied, it can be appealed. This is where it becomes absolutely necessary to work with a VA benefits lawyer because proving that you have a legitimate claim and securing an appropriate benefits package can be a complicated, time-consuming process. Depending on which point in the process your claim was denied, you could have as little as 30 days to file an appeal.
If you feel you have been unfairly denied the VA benefits you are entitled to receive or if you think you are entitled to VA benefits but you are not sure about the legal process for pursuing them, discuss your case with an experienced Champaign VA benefits attorney.

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.
How did we do?
