I've been denied and am getting ready to appeal the first denial. However, I will not be using heard and smith ever. I find I am having to hire an attorney to correct the misinformation sent in by heard and smith. I would not recommend this firm to anyone. They always did seem to be disorganized every time I would call them, lose information I sent in, and sending in the wrong information to SSA is a setback to my claim process. I learned a huge lesson.
I on the other hand had a pleasant experience with Heard and Smith. I was educated well after firing my former Attorney who never kept me well informed. That sums it up AJ, you are very illiterate and yes they do know more than you. Based on your posting, it seems that you were more concern about your wife’s Social Security Check than her health. Shame on You! I as well spoke numerous times with Ms. Margarita and every conversation was pleasant. I never asked her about her years of experience but I believe it, 20 years, from all the knowledge she shared with me. I attended the Hearing with Attorney Melissa and it went well. People before you apply for Social Security, please do your homework because it is not an overnight success. It is a lengthy process. Heard and Smith are Attorneys not Magicians. I highly recommend Heard and Smith.
Agree Run Away. Wife hired them. SSDI Case. Went all way to ALJ hearing. Fully Favorable. Appeals took it to review. Called H&S they said Dont worry about it Never happens. Well they said they would like more evidence to make there decission. H&S Nah dont need to THEY NEVER OVERTURN A DECISSION! Overturnd sent back to ALJ. Called H&S again. Margaritta Talking tome like i was a child said she had 20 yrs in this and knew way more then me and they SSA and the ALJ would never overturn there own decission wouldnt even get to hearing. Guess what. Not same ALJ this time. Get to hearing AGAIN. H&S sent a Lawyer who was cluless. Had no records. ALJ askd for SAME records last one askd for. Didnt have them, Ya know like the Hospital records. Yeah HOSPITAL RECORDS!!!!!!!!!!!! Alj got verry upset with lawyer now were on the phone Daily with H&S making sure they do what we paying them for. They will delay your case drag it out and Blunder there way thru. HEARD N SMITH IS A RIP OFF! STay away from them for your own sanity! And if they say it will happen one way Count on it going the total oposite!
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
