Comerford Law Office provides legal services for veterans seeking veterans’ disability benefits.
James R. Comerford has fulfilled the United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs accreditation process and is authorized to represent Veterans obtain disability benefits.
Everyday, brave individuals go to fight on foreign soil to protect the citizens of the U.S. These members of the military face risks and dangers on a daily basis and many come home injured from explosions, gunshots, and other violent incidents. In additions to physical wounds, many veterans return to the United States with emotional injuries, which often exist even in the absence of any physical injuries. Just the fear and threat of harm can be enough to significantly scar a veteran for years to come.
According to government statistics, an estimated 3.8 million had active disabilities that stemmed from their military service in 2014. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has realized that many disabled veterans need assistance and, therefore, provides benefits to help disabled veterans support themselves and receive the treatment they require. Benefits can be provided for many qualifying disabilities, including the following:
These are only some of many disabilities that may lead to obtaining benefits and if you are unsure whether you can qualify, please call VA benefits lawyer James R. Comerford to discuss your legal rights and options.
Veterans disability benefits are in the form of regular monetary payments that are not taxable. These funds are intended to help support veterans who are unable to work enough due to their disabilities. Furthermore, veterans and their families can receive additional benefits called Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) if they require assistance in daily life or if they have sustained certain disabilities, such as loss of a limb. Spouses of such veterans can also receive benefits for the aid and attendance they provide to the veteran in their household.
While these benefits are critical to many veterans, the VA may deny your benefits claim for various reasons even though you have a legitimate and qualifying disability. In such a situation, you need to have a highly experienced veterans benefits attorney standing up for your rights. A denial is not the final word, as you have the opportunity to appeal your decision. This can be a complicated process, so it is critical to seek legal assistance as soon as possible to ensure you get the benefits you deserve.
As a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), James Comerford has a proven commitment to protecting the rights of disabled veterans to receive benefits to help support themselves and receive proper care. If you have questions about VA benefits, need assistance with the application process, or need help appealing a denial of benefits, your first call should be to our experienced VA benefits lawyer at the Comerford Law Office, LLC. Please do not hesitate to call today for a free consultation at 312-863-8572 to discuss how we can help you.
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.
