If you are a veteran in Illinois who developed a disease or disability related to your time in the services, you are entitled to recovery tax-free benefits from the federal government. Unfortunately, even though you have rightfully earned these benefits, they can often be difficult to obtain.
Many valid applications are initially denied. At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, our dedicated Danville veterans benefits attorney is standing by, ready to help you fight to recover every penny that you deserve.
Our law firm handles all types of VA benefits cases. Our lead attorney James R. Comerford is a proud member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA) and he has been officially accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs to represent veterans in Danville, Illinois in benefits claims. No matter your disability, disease or condition, we have the skills and experience necessary to assist you. Some notable example of VA disability cases that we have handled include:
In the VA disability benefits claim process, veterans typically run into one of three different issues. First, they may find that their claim has been delayed. Data from the National Organization of Veteransâ€™ Advocates (NOVA) indicates that initial claims can take up to 180 days to receive a decision and appeals can take up to 24 months to be fully resolved. Second, applicants find that their disability rating is far lower than it actually should be. A reduced disability rating could mean that compensation and services are also reduced or even denied. Finally, some applicants have their claim wrongfully denied outright.
Our Danville VA benefits lawyer has the skills and legal knowledge needed to help you take on any of these issues. We will work with you to prepare your initial application, making sure that you are putting forth the strongest possible claim. In the event that your claim is denied or underpaid by the Department of Veterans Affairs, we will fight for you on appeal, taking your veterans benefits case as far as it needs to go to get you the compensation you deserve.

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.
