Binder & Binder have filed for bankruptcy in New York. It's hard to see this as anything but good news for everyone involved in Social Security disability. These national firms that relentlessly advertise on TV do not have a very good reputation. I have had many clients leave B&B. A lot them were shocked to find out that their lawyer was thousands of miles away. Most former B&B clients had never once spoken to the lawyer who was supposed to be representing them. For a lot of these people, the very first time they ever meet anyone from B&B is moments before their Social Security hearing started. I saw this first hand. Some lawyer dashes into the hearing office, dragging her luggage behind her, and asks for Mr. Smith or Ms. Jones. The lawyer and the client had no idea whom the other was. The lawyer may never have been to this office before. She has no sense of the judge and no bank of good will to draw on. This put the client squarely behind the eight ball before word one is spoken. In a perfect world, all of these mass-advertisers would go away. I think you are always better off to hire locally for something as important as trying to secure Social Security disability benefits.
About the Author
Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
