Veterans benefits are not given out for free; they are earned by people who have given so much to our country.

Recovering VA benefits in Decatur, Illinois can be extremely challenging. For most applicants, the process starts with submitting VA Form 21-526. This is a standardized form that is for the vast majority of initial veterans benefits claims. A tiny mistake on this form could lead to your claim being delayed or even rejected outright. Our Decatur VA benefits legal team will make sure that your application is submitted properly. Notably, when submitting your application you will need to include certain key documents that support your claim. Some examples are:
Ideally, your claim will be processed quickly, and your benefits will be paid out in full, without any problem. However, if your claim is denied or is paid in a reduced amount, you are not out of luck. Unfortunately, the VA does deny and underpay many wholly valid veterans benefits claims. Our legal team is ready to present an aggressive appeal on your behalf.

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.
