Comerford Law Office is proud to represent Americaâ€™s veterans after they have completed their service to their country. We have helped hundreds of veterans apply for and receive the veteransâ€™ disability benefits that they were promised before they chose to serve their country.
Far too often, veterans with notable disabilities are denied benefits simply because they are not sure how to file the forms or what evidence they will need to provide that their disability prevents them from working. Comerford Law Office works closely with each of our clients, finding necessary medical evidence to prove their case, and ensuring that the application process is as efficient as possible.
The type of disability you have matters less than how it impacts your life and how you became disabled. Those filing veteransâ€™ benefits claims will need to prove that their disability is related to their service to their country and that it prevents them from sustaining gainful employment.
The question is: How do you prove that if you are not a doctor or a lawyer? Most of those who attempt to file on their own learn the hard way that it is no simple process at all.
The Comerford Law Office can help veterans at every stage of the disability application process. If you are just beginning the process, we can help you file all of your forms and get the medical evidence required to prove your case. If you are in the process of appealing a decision, we can help you file a notice of disagreement or a Form 9 to appeal the decision. We will ensure that any issues the VA had with your case file are addressed in the appeal.
Disabilities that are eligible for benefits include:
The Veteransâ€™ Affairs Office makes regular monthly payments to those who were injured in the line of duty and cannot work as a result. Not only are the veterans themselves eligible to receive benefits, but their families and spouses are as well. Families are eligible to receive Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) if they require daily assistance in their lives because of their disabilities. Spouses are entitled to receive benefits for aid and care they give their veterans.Â
If your claim has been denied or you are looking to expedite the application process, the Will County veterans disability lawyers at The Comerford Law Office can help you every step of the way. Call us today to learn more about how we can help.
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.
