The Comerford Law Office is an accredited law office qualified to help veterans file claims with the VA. The reason why such attorneys exist is that the VA is very protective of their disability fund.
Veterans filing for benefits are expected to prove that their disability is related to their time in the service and that it prevents them from doing work for which they are qualified. This is beyond the scope of what your average person knows how to do. It requires making both a medical and legal argument for why you are entitled to VA benefits.
Most folks come to us after their application has been rejected, but we can also help veterans who have yet to begin the application process. Our job is to review your case and anticipate anything that the VA may use to deny your claim. We produce ironclad case files with medical evidence from doctors, occupational therapists, and mental health specialists to prove your case and get the benefits you were promised.
In cases where a soldier has been obviously wounded (as in the loss of a limb), it is very easy to prove that your disability is related to your service and that impacts your work. Other disabilities are much more difficult to prove. These include:
It was not until recently that the military admitted that there was a Gulf War Syndrome and psychiatric conditions are notoriously difficult to prove. Additionally, hearing loss can be difficult to prove as well as cognitive issues that result from other injuries such as TBI.
Our job as your attorney is to ensure your case file as all the necessary evidence to prove that you were both injured in the line of duty and that your disability prevents you from sustaining enough employment to support yourself or your family.
VA disability benefits are monthly payments that supplement a veteranâ€™s income after they have been injured in the line of duty. Additionally, VA benefits can be paid out to family members and spouses who require daily care.Â
These benefits were promised to every veteran who signed up to defend our country. Yet many are denied benefits because they are not sure what information the VA is looking for or how they can prove that they are not able to work. Filing Form 9 or notices of disagreement also complicate the process. But our attorneys have helped hundreds of veterans successfully file claims on the VAâ€™s disability fund.
If you have been injured in the line of duty and can no longer work as a result of a protracted disability, call The Comerford Law Office today and we can begin preparing your case file and getting you the benefits that you were promised.
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.
