Medical conditions resulting from military service can be expensive to treat, and your situation can be even more challenging when you cannot work as a result. The Veteransâ€™ Benefits Administration is intended to ease your financial stress, but the first threshold is qualifying for benefits.
You are not required to hire a VA benefits lawyer when filing a Form 9 and other support documents to appeal a denied claim for disability benefits. However, there are a number of reasons you should strongly consider retaining legal counsel. Attorneys have experience with the process and are knowledgeable in the laws that are relevant to your circumstances. The regulations alone number in the thousands of pages, so you face an uphill battle in protecting your interests. Our legal team at the Comerford Law Office, LLC know the requirements to succeed with an appeal and can avoid unnecessary delays.
When you are facing financial difficulties as a disabled veteran, you do not need to worry about paying a hefty retainer for legal representation. At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, our firm charges clients through a contingency arrangement, where you only pay if we win compensation in your case. Our fee is a percentage of the total amount you recover, and we will put the entire agreement in writing for you to sign. Once the VA approves your application and we subtract for our legal fees, we pay the remainder out to you as a lump sum.
When you face a complex application process, potential denials, and other complications, you can see why it is important to have an experienced VA benefits lawyer to represent your interests. If you have questions or want to schedule a free appointment, please call 312.863.8572 to reach the Comerford Law Office, LLC. Attorney James Comerford is happy to review your situation and help you get the benefits 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.
