I signed up with Binder and Binder in 2007, everything at first seemed smooth. Then they kept passing me off to suffer lawyers, and Everytime that happened you have to fill out all the same paperwork over and over again. I asked why they don't keep my information and...

Help with claiming disability

The va has denied my hearing loss claim for disability after giving me hearing aids for loss of hearing. i was an aircraft mechanic. for 31/2 years on a B47 which had 6 J47 turbo jet engines on it. and at the time i was in the service we did not have the type of hearing protection that is used today. i have been hard of hearing every since i was discharged in 1964.

Extremely Loysy Experience

I called Binder &;;; Binder to handle my disability appeal. Started with a representative from New York, then was transferred to the Southern California office. All my representatives spoke English as a 2nd language. They didn't understand me nor I them. Kept getting new representatives but not once did I talk to a lawyer. They took forever sending my forms to Social Security, waiting 'til the very last moment. Frustrating as *** Finally, at my hearing before an administrative law judge, I got to see a lawyer . . . from the Bay Area. Even he hadn't been notified by Binder & Binder that my case had already been decided in my favor before the hearing date. Well, Binder & Binder got their 25% 3 weeks before I saw a dime. Once again, they took their sweet time. DO NOT HIRE THEM FOR ANYTHING, EVEN A DOG BITE!

User's recommendation: Stay as far away from Binder & Binder as lossible.

Run. Run like a theif in the night.

Even after the judge told them I won my case on my own appeal, and they are not entitled to one cent. Binder still got over $12,000.00. CROOKS I tell you. I am looking for a lawsuit against them.

Greedy back stabber

First they kept asking for the same information over and over again. Then after being paid petitioned the court for the 25% instead of the fee I was told. Disability didn't catch up with me for 11 years now I have to pay them back the extra money they got.

I had a great advocate . He flew in from NY to WVA and my hearing was very professional with a professional judge and a stenographer ,, plus 2 people who work for disability .

My only complaint and it was Disability not Binder and Binder was the wait on whether I was approved . It took about 2.5 months and I received a letter from THAT I HAD INDEED BEEN APPROVED. I wish my advocate would have called as the waiting to find out would have been shorter by a few weeks . You seem to be upset at Binder and Binder when the Judge ultimately is the one who looks through your medical history and makes the decision ...

You evidently only met partial with your medical records ? I also did not have to go out of my way for medical records .. Once again my problem with that was my Dr office taking forever to send my records to Binder and Binder... They actually sent my Dr a threatening letter about releasing them and they finally sent them !!

I feel Binder and Binder did right by me .. I have agoraphobia so hiring a local lawyer where I would be expected to go in multiple times was out of the question and for BINDER AND Binder to fly in a representative was comforting !! They received 6000.00 the exact amount in my agreement and my backpay came quickly !! Also no matter what attorney you use you automatically lose 3 months of back pay as instructed by SSA .

That has nothing to do with who represents you.

Perhaps you didn't fully understand and perhaps you should have known they are REPRESENTATIVES and the only real lawyers there were the BINDERS !!! It's very clear if you read everything !!

Ripped off

I won my case in 2013 but my son didn't receive money as a minor cause he was too close to turning 18. I had to apply to SS separately for his back money and he won then but Binder and Binder went to SS last year for a fee from his case and SS gave them money even though they didn't help me with his case which happened months after mine. They are a rip off. They didn't deserve any money from his case

Not Worth A Crap

After dealing with numerous incompetent lawyers in their offices, I finally went to my first hearing, which of course I lost. The attorney never asked a question or did anything, she didn’t even have any paperwork with her. The 2nd hearing 2 years later, I took control of, spoke to the judge and vocational guy. Would up paying 20K for them to do nothing. Thought this crap was over. 5 years later SS says they overpaid me for over 10 years (due to backpay). I called Binder and Binder, they want nothing to do with it because they can’t win an overpayment case, even though it’s not my fault SS overpaid me and part of the overpayment they received as attorneys fees. Avoid these shisters at all costs. Hire a real attorney.

It's been a little over a year now but I have to vent somewhere. I hired Binder and Binder thinking I would get the best there is, yeah right. I do realize that even with a lawyer it takes time. 3 years and I had to do the paperwork myself anyway, they kept telling me...

They cap their fee at 6000.00$ and you say you paid them a lot of money... No more than others have plus had you lost you would not pay anything !!

And the lady was not YOUR lawyer .. She was your representative and if your papers smelled bad .. You should be grateful she redid them before the judge got them. He may have denied your claim knowing you weren't doing what you should or could for your health !!

And you shouldn't have to pay your Dr's for YOUR medical records ...

Only if you needed copies for yourself ... I sent them mine from my Drs which cost only the mailing fee !!!!

I concur.

#1694546

I filed in June 2012 and got my benefits and $40,000 on Jan.2013. Full benefits and back pay in 7 months . I AIN'T MAD.

@PissedConsumer1694546

I got 22,000$ -- my backpay for my occupation . It took 3 years to get approved but that was my DR'S slow as a snail staff who never could get things signed and sent !!

Not Binder and Binders fault !! I am receiving my monthly check and there is no HAPPY or WINNING to be declared disabled but I am grateful the representative was able to be by my side .. To many people think these people are all LAWYERS ... If you read the information before signing with them then it's very clear they are not !!

If you want to take a chance and hire a lawyer ,, then win or lose pay them a ton of money then go for it.

But Binder and Binder caps their fee at 6000.00$ and if you don't get approved you don't pay !!! Educate yourself on who you are doing business with and then you have no reason to complain !!

#1679861

I hear you on that! After talking me into applying, then two years of legal wrangling, when the case finally went before the appeals court, the clown from Binder and Binder asked me how much of my life was effected by my back problems.

My Back had nothing to do with my case. He was utterly clueless as to why he was there. End result? LOST and going broke!!

Back to work struggling and disabled for the the better part of the next 5 years. What a fabulous company!!

@PissedConsumer1679861

Who talked you into applying ? That was your decision !!

My advocate flew in from NY where we met at the SS building in a small office to go over what would be discussed plus I watched the DVD they sent before my hearing ...

I knew going into this they were representatives not All attorneys .. You never get a attorney !!

Charged way more then 6,000

Filed in 2013 was constantly connected to different people had to repeat my story every time I called. They gave me a person to represent me that was horrible didn't talk at all in my defense got denied had to appeal and I was told I would pay 6,000 that's it. So 5 years later misplacing my files because office went out of business and getting the run around never getting my phone calls returned and then when they did I got charged for leaving a 2 second message on my machine actually was charged $120.00 for that 2 second message. Finally went to see judge and was approved due to me talking to judge and basically representing myself because of all their negligence and unprofessionalism binder and binder wants to charge me 27,000 for giving me the run around and giving me bogus help and stretching this out 5 years almost 6. I have contacted the Bar association and called the news and newspapers and I'm going to tell my story almost loosing my home and causing a huge strain in my marriage and with family members. This should not happen to anyone. THEY ARE CROOKS!!!!!!

It should show they can't collect more than 20% plus they cap all cases at 6000$.. I can't imagine that they can take your money now... You won and SS is who sends your back pay and your monthly checks
