Many veterans in Illinois live with serious disabilities that are directly related to their time spent in the service. As these veterans gave so much to our country, our country must do its part and give back to them.
Yet, tragically, many veterans have an incredibly difficult time obtaining the full disability benefits that they have earned. At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, we help veterans fight for what is rightfully theirs. If you have questions about your veterans benefits, or need assistance filing a claim or an appeal, our experienced Evanston veterans benefits lawyers are standing by, ready to help. Â
Under United States Department of Veterans Affairs regulations, only a small subset of attorneys can represent veterans in disability claims. James R. Comerford, our principal, is one of these attorneys. Mr. Comerford has express legal authorization from the VA to handle disability claims. A non-exhaustive list of the veterans disability cases that we have handled includes: Â Â
If you are unsure of your rights, you should get in touch with our office today. Our Evanston veterans rights lawyer will comprehensively review your claim for free, with no strings attached. We are happy to provide you with information and to help you explore your legal options. From there, you and your family can make a decision on how to move forward in seeking your benefits.
Under U.S. law, veterans are entitled to seek compensation from the Department of Veterans affairs if they have a qualifying disability that is linked to their time in the service. To seek this compensation, veterans must submit an application with the VA. Unfortunately, the application process is often lengthy, and many different things can potentially go wrong. This is where our experienced Evanston veterans rights lawyers can help. Not only can we help you ensure that your application is properly filled out and filed, with all needed supporting documentation and medical records, but we can also help you appeal the decision and assert your rights if the VA denies your claim or understates the severity of your disability.
At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, we work with veterans on a daily basis. Our lead lawyer, James Comerford is a proud member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA). If you or a loved one has been wrongfully denied your full and fair veterans benefits in Evanston, we can help. To schedule a free, no-obligation review of your case, please do not hesitate to call us today at 312-863-8572
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.
