I am not sure about these other cases but my husband and I had a pleasant experience with Heard & Smith they had a team of lawyers that were always available to ask questions, kept my husband abreast step-by-step of the process. My husband even had to move from Texas back to Indiana and Heard & Smith stayed with him every step of the way. I highly recommend them as Social Security Lawyers. Keep in mind that Social Security is a lengthy process and it may take a couple years there is a lot of red tape to go thru and most everyone gets denied first time this is not Heard & Smiths fault. If you are TRULY disabled and need help these are the lawyers I would recommend.
OMG! I have an administrative hearing in August, I have been denied twice (as usual) and now a few weeks before my hearing and after waiting almost 2 years, my attorney suggests I withdraw because the judge we have is strict and we wont win. GREAT NEWS
I hired Heard and Smith almost two years ago and have been denied twice by the social security office. When I contact them I always receive a response from them and It seems they are helpful. Now after reading these stories I am terrified...hope things go well for me.
I hired H&S 7 months ago to help me with SSDI. 7 months later I still have not heard from them and SS tells me my case has been declined. I tried calling Heard and Smith and the phone rings with no answer. I have made many, many attempts to contact them, and no reply. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HEARD AND SMITH... There is a post from Joshua E.. Please read it. I think he needs to quit posting here and start answering the phones. Seriously.
This firm is an absolute rip-off.
They did nothing to help me, I did my own leg-work.
Tried to cancel after a few weeks.
They collected their 25% of my income for doing NOTHING.
I too, will contact authorities to report their extremely poor business practices.
wow! wish id read these reviews first i just hired these guys to help me get ssdi the ink isnt dry yet and i get a call from social today to confirm im blind! what the oh guess i cant talk like that here but i sure the hell didnt tell anybody i was blind. there where a couple other things wrong as well im a bit sorry i hired them already and reading these reviews is sure got me wondering about them. to early in the game to bad mouth them yet but i will keep you posted on the outcome of my case. mistakes happen but blind pretty big mistake on my app. god let this not be the first of many.
thanks Roy Dell
Run Away!!!!!!!!!!!!! – The absolute worst experience I have ever had! I wish I had read these reviews before I retained these thieves. I have to beg and plead to receive any kind of response from them and when I do it is some kind of B.S. I talked to Social Security and they said that nothing had been done for the past 6 months...they are just sitting back and waiting to collect...not going to happen, I will be sending them a letter and firing them promptly. I have notified my local senator and they have someone looking into this firm. BIGGEST MISTAKE I EVER MADE!!!
Response to Teri Crosby's review – I am a lawyer and founding partner at Heard & Smith. I have read and reviewed Ms. Crosby's comments titled 'Fired!' and although I cannot talk about a past client's case (that is confidential), I can offer a general response to her concerns.
Each day over 100 people come to work at Heard & Smith and work hard fighting for our client's rights. We know Social Security is quick to deny, and that our clients all need experienced help to have a fair chance. Social Security's own numbers show that those with representation are more likely to win their benefits. We help thousands of people every year win their benefits.
We care about our clients, each month we represent hundreds of people in their disability hearings before Social Security judges. We are proud that our hard work is rewarded every day in the form of referrals of new clients from our current & past clients.
From what Ms. Crosby has mentioned she had a difficult experience working with us, for which I apologize. We want all of our clients to trust that we are doing our best, and we hope to hear from them if they ever have doubts. Please escalate a concern to a manager if you have one, we'll work hard to quickly resolve any complaint.
Our experience and dedication does more than satisfy most of our clients - we usually earn their trust. If you choose to work with Heard & Smith we will not disappoint, you can trust in us to help you win the benefits you are entitled to.
Fired! – I hired this law firm about 7 months ago, To represent me in a Social Security Disability case. I had try to make this claim by myself. I was on my last appeal. I thought it was in my best interest to now hire an attorney if I want any chance in winning my case. I finally get a court date, After waiting for a year. I call within a few days of notification to make sure they have my court date and were ready to go to bat for me. They claimed they never received the notification. So the judge had to be notified. The judge granted me a postponement and made it clear this will not happen again. Great they pissed of the judge right off the bat. Our first telephone interview for intake they were at least an hour late calling. Their excuse an advocate called in. After the intake I had to call back and verify some info. Oh, that advocate no longer works here. Who are you again? I send them paper work that they need me to fill out. Hey we got this page but I am not sure where the letter is that I told them was also in enclosed in the same envelope. Where the hell the letter go? I have done all their paperwork for them. Supplied them with all the medical records that i have obtained and are complete. I get a new advocate each time I call. And nobody knows what the hell is going on. Ask them to sum up for me what they have done for my case. Guess what? They cant. I am pissed. Attorneys you will be receiving a certified letter stating why I am terminating their services.
