If you are unable to work due to an illness or disability, stress over money and security can become a regular part of your life. Social Security lawyer, James R. Comerford of The Comerford Law Office, LLC in Chicago, IL, dedicates his life to helping people like you.
He helps clients obtain the monetary benefits you need to cover your medical expenses and live a comfortable and happy life. Whether you already applied for Social Security benefits and have been denied them, or whether you are at the beginning of the claims process and want to ensure a successful outcome the first time around, our team of knowledgeable and experienced legal associates is here to help you.
In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must meet the disability requirements as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). According to the SSA, an individual is disabled if they are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) because of a physical or mental impairment. What this means is that the claimant must be unable to perform any work of their previous occupation, as well as any other work due to their age, education, and work experience. The disability or impairment must be medically proven by a professional, and must be expected to last for at least 12 months or to result in death.
At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, we will do everything in our power to help you obtain the Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI) that you need to live comfortable. This includes:
Working with a Social Security lawyer is your best chance of being approved initially. That being said, the earlier you contact an attorney, the better. Even if you are in the initial stages of filling out the claim, we recommend consulting with a lawyer. This is because an experienced Social Security lawyer knows exactly what is necessary to obtain a successful outcome, and can guide you on how to fill out the application in the most advantageous way possible. They can also help you avoid common application errors that result in denial.
If you have already been denied your Social Security benefits, it is definitely time to hire an attorney. In addition to increasing your chances of a successful appeal, a Social Security disability lawyer can move your claim through the appeals process faster than if you were to attempt the process on your own. This is important for individuals with serious medical conditions and those whose financial situations are particularly dire.
At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, we assist individuals in applying for Social Security disability benefits across the state of Illinois. If you have been denied your benefits, do not lose hope – skilled attorney James R. Comerford has helped countless individuals receive a reverse decision after presenting evidence and a strong case. If you are in the beginning of the process, it might still be beneficial to consult with a Social Security lawyer.

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.
