Veterans seeking benefits for a service-related injury or illness have much to deal with. The very fact that a veteran is seeking benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) indicates that they are struggling from a health perspective, which can leave little time or energy to deal with a VA claim or appeal.
Before proceeding further, know that the attorneys at Comerford Law Office are available to assist with your claim or appeal. If you hire a lawyer to handle your claim or appeal with the VA, you receive several benefits including:

While an attorney can never guarantee results, you may credibly believe that an experienced lawyer is best suited to lead your claim or appeal.
An attorney can handle every aspect of your claim, including:
