Veterans provide an essential service to our country. Indeed, less than one percent of all Americans have ever served in any branch of the armed forces. Indeed, according to U.S. government data, there are currently fewer than 20 million U.S. veterans. Shockingly, one in every five of these veterans has a disability that can be directly connected to their time in the service.
Veterans are entitled to full and fair benefits for any service-related medical conditions. Yet sadly, many veterans have a hard time obtaining their benefits. Our firm is dedicated to working with veterans to fix this problem. If you are having trouble recovering your full and fair veterans benefits, please contact our experienced Oak Park veterans benefits lawyers today.
Not just any attorney can handle a veterans benefits claim. Indeed, to represent veterans in these type of cases, an attorney must be officially certified and accredited by Department of Veterans Affairs. Our lead attorney, James R. Comerford, has the proper credentials to take on these cases. Our team has experience handling a wide array of different veterans disability claims, including:
We also handle all other types of military service-related disability claims. If you have any questions about your specific claim, we encourage you to give us a call. Our Oak Park veterans benefits lawyers will review your case for free, with no strings attached. From there, we will explain your legal rights and help you explore your options.
Our firm fully understands that each veterans benefits case is unique; we always give all of our clients the individualized attention that their claim requires. Most claims are initiated when a veteran files the official VA application from, seeking disability or retirement benefits. Though, unfortunately, simply filing is not enough in many cases. If your claim was denied, for any reason, our Oak Park attorneys are ready to help. Claims can be denied for many different reasons; sometimes it happens because there is a question about the true severity of the condition, other times because there are questions about its connection to their military service. Regardless, no matter the situation, our team is ready to help.
At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, we have extensive experience protecting the rights and interests of veterans in Oak Park, and throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. If you or a loved one needs help getting veterans benefits in Illinois, please call us today at 312-863-8572 to set up a free review of your case.
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.
