According to U.S. government data, nearly 4 million veterans have a disability or medical condition that is related to their time serving our country. Veterans live with physical, mental, and emotional wounds. There are benefits available for those with qualifying disabilities and conditions.

When we take on a veterans disability claim in Schererville, Indiana, our legal team always hits the ground running. We will take whatever action is required to get you the best results. Our Schererville veterans lawyer can help you prepare your initial application. To start the process, you must complete and submit VA Form 21-526. This is a complex form and you need to get it right. It is imperative that you include all relevant medical documentation with your initial application.
In the unfortunate event that your claim is denied, you should contact an experienced Schererville VA disability attorney immediately. Our law firm will help you prepare and submit a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) using VA-Form 21-0958. This is the first step in filing an appeal. If the initial review is not successful, we can help you raise your case to the Board of Veterans Appeals. By filing a form 9 (VA Form 9), you have the right to get a hearing before the board. You only have 60 days after receiving a second decision to file an appeal.

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.
