Binder and BinderHorrible Lawyers, Can't do the job!

I initially signed on with Binder and Binder in 2005 after I signed up for Social Security Disability, and was denied. I moved to North Carolina with my Husband who had just gotten stationed there. That's when I thought I would need help from Lawyers to file for an appeal. I had a great case worker to start with, and after 5 months of sending file after file, and record after record. Constantly updating them on my Medical Status which was cut and dry. Mind you I am already 100% Unemployable through the Veterans Administration, so how hard can it be to get me approved right? WRONG!! These Brain Children passed my file from one dope to another! No one could give me an answer as to what was going on, and no one could keep my file in their hands for longer than 2 months before it was on someone else's desk! I got more and more frustrated as time dragged on. I actually got a letter that the Social Security Department needed me to sign and send back in for me to get a trial, and I was informed that since it didn't come from Binder and Binder NOT to sign it, and wait. So now October of 07 passes, and THEN they want me to sign it!! It's passed the due date so now I have to start from scratch all over again! I am stuck with hundreds of dollars in medical records, and over a 1000 bucks spent to send off the said paperwork and to pay for the constant copies, and I so far have gotten NO WHERE!!! Mind you also that at one point, they assigned my case to their local Raliegh NC Office, and when I called to find out what was going on, the idiot on the other end of the line acted like I was disrupting her entire day, and I shouldn't have wasted my time! You got that right... Mysteriously overnight, my file was shipped BACK to NY, where Mr Binder HIMSELF was now working my case... HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Right! I still got absolutely no where! I lost my so called appeal, my other case had gone stagnant. I was so angry that I fired them. They had the Balls to tell me I OWED THEM 75.00 to get back my Medical Records back, after all the money I put into it to do MY part to do their job! Binder and Binder sucks. They cannot do their job. They give you a false sense of hope, and make you think they can help you. I have heard many more stories such as this, one even going back 7 years! Really 7 years to get something approved?? DO NOT TRUST THEM!! I got the letter for my appeal in the mail, and what do you know, I went by myself to fight for my appeal, and I got it! The Judge that handled my case was fair, and stern. Regardless, I got my own benefits! There is one thing that is scaring me though, and that is, Binder and Binder, even after Firing them, still had their name on my case. I am waiting for the back pay to see if any of it will go to them, and if it does, I am going to sue for that and all the time they lost for me! Trust yourself and go to court on your own for an appeal. It's easy. Just be honest and answer the questions that they Judge asks of you. If I can do it, anyone can...

    Binder and Binder have been the biggest mistake I have ever made. Now after they've wasted three and half years of my life, I have had to hire a local firm who actually do care. I cant even begin to explain how angry I am with them. I'm just thankful that I am in Texas and they are way up in New York else I would have already gotten myself into some deep trouble. Don't use them. I would give anything to have not made that first phone call to these clowns. Dam.

    Thanks for the input on Binder & Binder. I just kicked them to the curb and hired a local attorney.

    Binder and Binder suck Jul 24, 2013

    To the anonymous lawyer, I say where do I find a counsel that is not in for the money and just to make a difference.
    I hired Binder and Binder and I have nothing but a bunch of people not doing their job unable to answer their phone, or return a phone call.
    I have 6 major illnesses, I am almost unable to walk anymore and I just got my denial letter today. My doctor was outraged, and could not understand, well neither can I. How do people get it when they are not even sick, and we get denied when we are really hurting.
    I am firing them tomorrow but need someone who is going to fight for me, really fight, however, my history with attorneys has been very bad and honestly, when I have represented myself I have done a much better job however, it took me many hours studying the law and how to do it right.
    I don't want to pay them a dime to them claiming to be working my case. Also I'm sick and my energy level is not as good as it used to be. I need an awesome attorney, probably newby, broke in debt to work on my case...once they become big and rich their thinking changes a lot.

    Binder and Binder is now a hedge fund. The definition of a hedge fund is "a flexible company for a small number of investors (usually the minimum investment is $1 million dollars). This means that Binder and Binder is getting RICH on your disability. Binder and Binder do not hire lawyers to represent you. They hire people to go in to the Hearings and embarass themselves before the Administrative Law Judges. If you want to gamble on your Social Security benefits hire them. They will take your money and re-invest it into their hedge fund.

    I am an attorney who represents clients who have cases like this, trying to get disability benefits from Social Security. PLEASE HIRE AN ATTORNEY IF YOU NEED ONE. Most of us who do this work are not in it just for the money; I happen to really like making a difference in others' lives. I, myself, am a sole practitioner. I am the one who has ALL the contacts with the client: I interview them, review the case with them, and prepare them for the hearing, which I attend as well.
    I have gotten so many clients who went to their hearings by themselves, but were unable to win the hearings. Ask for references when you hire a lawyer, if you need to.
