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.
Under United States Department of Veterans Affairs regulations, only a small subset of attorneys can represent veterans in disability claims. James R.

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.
