This Firm is here solely for the money. What a let down! I was approved only due to me calling SSA and working with them. Its like I am dealing with a bunch of interns who don't know or care about anything expect Friday & Paydays!!! All this firm did was file this case and couldn't even do that right, for some reason whom ever did the filing checked something wrong my First Disability had been reduced by more than half as SSA thinks I am getting workers compensation. Stay away from this MILL$$

These guys sucked. They couldn't even get the medical records to the hearing on time. The judge was kind enough to hear the case again 8 months later. I guess this is heard and smiths answer to a dire needs letter.again these guys sucked if you choose them well I guess good luck. They really suck

There is an extreme lack of communication. I receive an occasional email or form letter

I can't give them a poor rating, because they really didn't do much. However, when I decided to switch to a lawyer closer to home, I asked them for a letter stating they were no longer representing me. Seven days after I asked for the letter, someone from Heard & Smith called to try to convince me to stay. They had not even started my letter. I felt they were negligent.

I feel that they lack concern for their clients. I only talked to an attorney once before my hearing. They had been employed by me for 7 months.

I was very impressed with this law firm. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who needs a disability lawyer.

I won my case with them, and the 25% legal fee was suppose to be taken out of my Social Security Disability Check before I received it. I got my check and a year later, I get a notice that I owe them $2,000 because their independent lawyer that represented me did not get their fee. This is a lawyers office, aren't they suppose to know how to do their paperwork? I used the money to pay back bills that accumulated from being disabled and thought the fee was already paid. Not fair!!

Heard and Smith has very poor communication skills and is not very organized in their office procedures. It took them over 2 months to forward a questionnaire from SSD to me, which was over the 10 day time allowed from SSD. They never call me for updates or email me. And, I have had 2 different law assistants in 8 months.

I contacted Heard and Smith about filing my disability claim. Within 10 minutes I received a phone call. We immediately did an interview and they sent out all necessary paperwork for me to fill out. The firm keeps me very well updated on what is going on with my claim and responds promptly to my phone calls or e-mail. On a 1-10 scale of referring people I know to them it would be a most definite 10.
