I read several reviews and wish to put my experience with them on the site.

I used Binder & Binder to get SSDI. My main complaint is they would shift my case from person to person and one lady was just plain rude.

I spoke with a supervisor and said: "Either you handle my case yourself or give me only one representative, period". He was professional and the rest of my time with them, I had only one caseworker. I did not have to go to court, they either went for me or mailed the documentation to a judge. I received a document with the judge's findings, and he granted my disability.

I would not use Binder & Binder again only due to being shifted to different caseworkers. I would use a local attorney.

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.

Screwed me out of my disability.

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

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 forward it to all the lawyer's they keep passing you to.

Months and months and months went by, a bunch of lawyers passed by me.

I finally got a court date, and Binder and Binder quit me.

I couldn't believe it, I tried getting another lawyer, but they didn't have enough time to prepare for me in court. I was so scared, I didn't go to court. I didn't know what to do. I had know paperwork, no mouthpiece, I had a matter of 2 weeks.

I finally went to a legitimate lawyer, only to find out that was my one and only chance to go to court. My work credits ran out in 2008, didn't know what they were, but it means no disability for a woman who was told she will never work again, had several surgeries and a Neuropace put in her brain. I can't drive anymore, I have several underlying issues. My Doctors cannot believe I am not on Disability.

They are all behind me, willing to sign any and documents needed. Binder and Binder took that all from me. Now I am screwed, and I worked hard, very hard for years.

I deserved something, more than what I received. Please be careful, find a local Social Security Lawyer, do not use Binder and Binder.

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!

Like a idiot I hired these clowns.I did all the work they need money to get doctor records,I did it all my self.When it came down do getting doc records,they were paper,and my doc at that time said they were in the basement and could not find them.I threaten them with AMA ,what you no they found them the very next day.I call B&B and they said they didn't need them.They also said they would file 3 years back so I could get Paid.What a dam lie.I received SSI partial disability. I was sent a review 3 years late in paper by SSI and I told them B&B sucked and so did the judge for that BS hearing.I also told them if they screw with my SSI I will get a real lawyer NOT a Advocate like B&B.I was screwed out of 3 years of back pay.I need a lawyer to sue to get on medicare and sue for fully disabled.My doctor left Medicaid and now I have to pay this Quack 60 dollars for 2 minutes and he owns his own building and sucks as a doctor.Family run money making machine.Hippocratic Oath my *** Corporate greed,lets bring them to there knees.I hate Corporate greed.

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 !!

Guest

Binder & Binder did everything for me and guided me through this process. I had to go to a doctor to certify my disability and it took 1 and 1/2 years but they came through with flying colors and now I am getting my monthly checks.Thank you binder & binder!

What people don't understand

Binder And Binder - What people don't understand
Explore video interviews

#1 - Binder & Binder are NOT attorneys. They are “advocates”.

#2 - Social Security is nothing but a waiting game. They are understaffed and underfunded. It is not that the lawyer/representative is not doing anything, it is that your file is at the SSA in a pile and will not get looked at or scheduled for months or years. There is nothing for your representative to do during this wait.

#3 - 90% of cases are denied the very first time due to the fact that over half of the denied cases will not appeal. This is from an attorneywho previously worked FOR SSA

#4 - it is not determined by whether your condition is on the list of disabilities, but by how severe your symptoms are

#5 - it is also determinedby if you can do ANY job(janitorial, laundry services, etc.) not just be the job youpreviously had

#6 - contact your Congressman about your case. It's not a guarantee, but it can help.

I have been through this process several times - first for my (now ex) husband who had a rare autoimmune disease (took 2 years from initial filing), and my son who has severe PTSD (1 1/2 years from initial filing), and now myself. I was denied at first Judicial Hearing for SSD and now just got my date for SSI Judicial Hearing. I filed initially in 2013

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 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 !!

Guest

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!!

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 !!
