Comerford Law Office provides assistance to veterans seeking disability benefits from the VA. More often than not, the process is stressful, confusing, and opaque. Disability benefit filers are left to attempt to prove their cases on their own without the medical or legal knowledge required to prove a case to a judge.
Comerford Law Office will review rejection letters and help create ironclad claim files to smooth over the process and increase the chances that your benefits application will be accepted.
According to the U.S. government, there are over 3.8 million veterans with active disabilities that prevent them from sustaining gainful employment. Some of these conditions include:
If your condition is not mentioned, you may still receive VA benefits. If you need help filing a Form 9 or filing a notice of disagreement, do not hesitate to call the Peoria, Indiana VA benefits attorneys at the Comerford Law Office today.
Veteransâ€™ disability benefits are regular monthly payments that are non-taxable. These funds are intended to help those who served our country but have a service-related disability that makes it difficult for them to work.Â
Families of veterans are also entitled to receive additional benefits called Special Monthly Compensation (SMC). This money is set aside for veterans who require daily assistance or they have specific disabilities (like losing a limb). Spouses to these veterans may receive compensation for aid and assistance that they provide their husband or wife.Â
These benefits are important to those who have sustained combat-related injuries that impair their ability to work. That being said, the VA is very protected of their veteranâ€™s benefits fund and will force every claimant to prove their disability is sufficiently injurious to warrant having their income supplemented by the government. This process is slow and frustrating. Having an attorney handle the claim for you can mean the difference between having your benefits awarded in a few months to a few years.
At Comerford Law Office, we take pride in helping our nationâ€™s veterans lead relaxing, full lives with the financial support they need. We can help you navigate the complex claims process, fill out the required forms, and then pad your case file with all the evidence required to get your benefits awarded. Call today to learn more about how we can help.Â
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.
