United States veterans who have a disability that is connected to their military service are entitled to tax-free benefits. Frustratingly, these VA benefits can be difficult to obtain. In fact, even wholly valid claims are sometimes initially denied.
At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, our Springfield veterans benefits attorney is dedicated to ensuring that veterans in our community are able to get the full income and medical benefits that they have earned.
As a matter of federal law, an individual must be properly accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) before they can handle any aspect of a benefits claim. Our lead attorney, James R. Comerford, has the qualifications required to prepare, present and appeal your VA disability claim. Some examples of specific types of conditions that our team has handled include:
We also have experience handling VA benefits claims involving a wide variety of other types of illnesses and conditions. No matter the underlying circumstances of your case, we can help take you through every step of the claims process.
Our Springfield veterans’ rights legal team understands that each claim is unique. To ensure that your case is effectively handled, we promise to always give it the undivided, individualized attention that it requires. We can assist you in completing your initial VA application, ensuring that all supporting medical documentation is included, so that your claim is as strong as possible.
Unfortunately, in some cases, the VA understates the true severity of a veteran’s disability, assigning them a disability rating that is far too low. This results in benefits being reduced and even denied altogether. We will not let this stand. If the VA will not pay you full benefits, either because there is a dispute over the severity of your condition, or a dispute over whether or not it is connected to your military service, we will fight for your rights. A Springfield veterans’ rights lawyer at our office is are here to aggressively representing you during your 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.
