According to the most recent data from the United States Census Bureau, there are more than 3.7 million veterans in our country who are living with disabilities related to their time serving in the armed forces. These veterans, many of whom live right here in Cook County, Illinois, have earned their benefits.
Yet tragically, disabled veterans often get caught up in bureaucracy, unable to get the full and fair benefits that they earned protecting our freedom. At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, our Hines veterans rights lawyer has the skills and legal experience required to protect Illinois veterans and their families.
Our law firm offers a full range of services in VA benefits cases. Our lead attorney James R. Comerford has been officially accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This is critically important, as only accredited attorneys have the legal authority to bring veterans benefits claims.
Not only does Mr. Comerford possess the necessary qualification, but he also has extensive experience handling a wide array of VA benefits cases. No matter what type of disability or medical condition you have, our Hines VA benefits lawyer will be able to help you through the claims process. A few of the examples of cases our team has handled include:
To recover your VA benefits in Hines, IL, you will likely need to start the process by completing and submitting VA Form 21-526. While this is a standardized form, it is also a highly complex one. If you make a single mistake on this form, your application for benefits could be substantially delayed or even denied. We will take on your case from the beginning of the process, making sure that your application is properly completed and that you have included all relevant supporting materials. For reference, required supporting documentation will likely include:
If the VA denies your claim, or underpays your claim, our Hines veterans attorney will spring into action, gathering the information needed to submit a strong appeal on your behalf. We will not rest until we get you the full benefits that you are owed to you in exchange for your service.

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.
