The Comerford Law Office is proud to represent Glenview veterans in their benefits claims with the VA. James R. Comerford is an accredited veteransâ€™ affairs attorney and is authorized to represent veterans in their disability claims.
Too often, those who served our country file claims on funds that they were promised if they should ever be severely injured in the line of duty or have service-related disabilities. But the VA denies these claims citing insufficient evidence of disability to accept the claim. Those who apply are then left to determine why their claim has been denied and what evidence they will need to get their benefits approved. This is where The Comerford Law Office steps in.
We ensure that you have an ironclad claim file and can prove that your disability was related to your time in the service. We can help you file a Form 9 or a notice of disagreement. We will ensure that you have all the medical evidence you need to prove your case.
Technically, there is no list of disabilities that qualify for VA benefits. Instead, you must prove that your injuries were related to your years in the service and that your disability prevents you from sustaining enough employment to support yourself.
Additionally, your family can qualify for VA benefits in the event that your spouse provides you with daily assistance. This benefit, known as Special Monthly Compensation (SMC), can help offset the costs related to in-home nursing or compensate a spouse who is losing work hours home to care for their veteran.
Common disabilities include:
Veteransâ€™ disability benefits are an important way to ensure that our military heroes get the support they need if they are injured in the line of duty. These benefits can augment a householdâ€™s monthly income and even help spouses of veterans who require daily care supplement their income, as well.
The most important thing to know is that the benefits were promised to you when you signed up to join the military. You are entitled to them by contract. If you are injured because of your time in the service and are struggling to sustain gainful employment, the attorneys at The Comerford Law Office are proud to represent you as you make your case to the VA.
If you are struggling to sustain gainful employment and were injured in the line of duty, you are likely eligible to receive benefits from the VAâ€™s disability fund. These are monthly payments made to you and your family to ensure that you can pay your bills, feed yourself, and take care of your loved ones.

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.
