The United States Census Bureau reports that nearly 3.8 million American military veterans are living disabilities connected to their time in the service.
Nearly 1..1 million of these veterans have a disability rating above 70. This means that they have an extremely debilitating medical condition.

We will conduct an in-depth review of your case and determine exactly what you need to do to maximize your compensation.
To say that the VA disability claims process is complicated is a major understatement. In order to protect your interests, it is imperative that you are represented by a qualified Champaign veterans rights attorney. For most applicants, the first step in the process requires completing VA Form 21-526. A small mistake or omission on this form could result in lengthy delays or even an outright denial of your claim.
The VA assigns all applicants a disability rating. The higher the rating (0-100 scale), the more serious your disability is deemed by VA officials. If your rating is too low, you may not receive full benefits. In some cases, you may not receive benefits at all. Our legal team will help you prepare your application with the proper medical documentation to ensure that your disability rating is properly assigned. If the VA assigns a rating that is too low, we will jump into action, fighting on your behalf so that you can recover the full benefits you deserve under federal law.

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.
