These guys took two years of my life. All along I thought they were doing a good job for me. They answered my calls so I thought all was well.

My hearing date arrived and I answered all questions truthfully. The Myler attorney who sat in on the hearing took notes on a legal pad as the judge asked me questions. Hearing over the attorney said I represented myself well.

His last words to me were, "If your case is denied we will refile."

Two months later I receive a letter from Myler telling me about how I should appeal or start a new claim.

I did not realize my case had been denied. So I call my case manager and she tells me they are dropping me as a client. What the heck happened to "We will refile".

Two years of my life I wasted with these people.

I am sure they win some cases to stay in business.

However I would think long and hard before I trusted them with my future.

Haven't used |Myler yet, their not the only one's who act like that. I chose another Diability company.

Before my hearing I asked them is their anything else I could do to support my claim. They said theirs nothing more to do but wait. Which their was something else I could have done, because they didn't accomplish anything. I emailed them crying my heart out about my situation, most of the time they would email back.

Their attorneys for the first hearing, met me at the last minute, and flew by all the details. Then the next hearing I had a female attorney, they switched attorneys without asking me anything. I think you should at least meet with attorneys at least a week or 2 before hearing. Get this the second hearing the judge didn't show.

It was the coldest day ever, but I made it their an hour early, wasted carfare, because he cancelled it to another date, which I asked my lawyer, how much longer it will be before the judge calls another hearing. I think it's unfair that they can not show up and make your case longer than necessary when you already had been waiting 2 years.

|If I didn't show up my case would have been cancelled. Again it was cold as ever below 0, I made it why didn't he.

In 2010 my wife won her s.s disability case. She had to take her case in front of the hearing judge after being denied twice.

My wife had three letters from doctors stating she was disabled and the judge was surprised it had gone this long. On the day of her hearing the Myler attorney showed up just in time. he was completely prepared. He only needed to talk to my wife for a few minutes because he had all of her records.

This mylar attorney new exactly how to talk to the judge and just called out reference numbers to the medical records. The hearing did not last 5 minutes and the judge issued his ruling right then.

All back S.S payments included. Almost everyone gets denied at least once maybe twice.

@ brainsurgery you are exactly right. my wife used them 4 years ago.

She was turned down the first time then appealed it and got a hearing with a hearing officer or judge..

about three or four months later and was fully favorable approved within a years time!

They did a great job and so the people that are against myler disability,,,

***They have an 80% winning percentage!! *** Not to shabby at all...

Myler Disability - Added fees that are fraud

We just became aware of this review but want to assure this anonymous reviewer that every single penny we receive in legal fees must first be approved by the Social Security Administration. While we can't verify the authenticity of this review, if we received a $700 for helping this person win benefits, it was because Social Security (a) agreed that we should be paid, and (b) authorized a fee that was deemed appropriate. If this person has further questions, we're happy to talk. We can be reached at 1-800-652-9626.

i got disability and no back pay so they added a bunch of fees such as phone calls they would say they talked to me a 1/2 hour and it was only 3 minutes several times at 100 dollars an hour i pulled my phone records of the calls and none were charged out right. they are trying to get 700 dollars out of me for nothing but trumped up charges.

on my first interview i ask them about the fees if i did not have back pay and they said everybody gets back pay and there would be no fee unless they were out of pocket for expenses like medical records.

when i got my bill i talked to alex v and told her about the conversation and her answer was sorry we miss informed you but you owe us the money. DO NOT HIRE THEM UNTIL YOU ARE DISSAPROVED BECAUSE THEY WILL MISS IMFORM YOU JUST TO GET YOU TO SIGN ON ASAP/

It seems like there might have been a misunderstanding, as my previous experience with Myler has been fantastic. They were honest, polite, and friendly.

I'm sure that a big firm like Myler would have several expenses in a case that it would need to recover, such as attorney fees, record fees, and all other fees associated with running a business and making sure that your matter is given the best representation possible. I don't think it would be fair for them to help you win your benefits and not be compensated.

Just my opinion. Once again, thank you Myler.

Myler Disability - Disability Package Review from Houston, Texas

We just became aware of this review. Almost 3 years has passed and we hope that this person reached out to our office for clarification on why he/she was receiving the same paperwork more than once. It's very likely that if the new client package was sent multiple times, it was because the client asked us to. Other paperwork may seem repetitive, but nearly all of it is what Social Security requires to have updated from time to time. If you've got a question about why we're sending you something to be filled out and submitted, give us a call and we're happy to explain why.

Myler disability needs to close down

In all types of litigation, there will always be a winner and a loser. The winners usually walk away happy and the losers usually walk away very upset. It's no different with disability cases. However, here at Myler Disability we have been helping disabled clients receive benefits from Social Security for many years. We're very good at what we do and have tens of thousands of clients who are better off today because of the service we offered them. If you're upset or frustrated with how your case is going, please give us a call at 1-800-652-9626. We'd love to help you out!

Myler Disability - AMAZED AT MYLER ***

We just became aware of this obscure website and the reviews that are here. We want to take time to address each and every review, but we also encourage our clients to call us to discuss their concerns or complaints. We're happy to listen and try helping our clients in any way that we can. The reality is that most of these people are frustrated because of how long the Social Security disability process takes and it's easier to aim their frustration at us than somewhere else. We understand and still want to help. Please be aware that the long waiting times people are experiencing has nothing to do with Myler Disability, but rather with the backlog Social Security is facing. While there are a number of people who have written complaints on this obscure website, they only represent about 0.0002% of our clients. The truth is that we've successfully represented many tens of thousands of clients over the years and nearly all of them have been very happy and satisfied with the services we offer. If the author of this anonymous review has problems with how we handled his/her claim (which, per the info provided, was approved), we would encourage him/her to give us a call. Name calling on obscure websites that we're unaware of will do nothing to resolve your concerns. Give us a chance to help you out. Call us at 1-800-652-9626.

First off it takes 3 years to get disability anyone will tell you, you are ALWAYS turned down at your first hearing. you have to have all medical/mental medical documentation along with all specialists as well as vocational rehabilitation report from SSA to get it.

They do not just take someones word and never will get it without an attorney, they do not take anymore than any other attorney.

They did not fail you at the first hearing, social security again ALWAYS denies your first initial court hearing, ask any of your doctors. :(

You have to have doctors, specialist, mental health, MRI'S, orthopedic surgeons that is what is required by SSA and yes you have to complete papers, sometimes duplicates, because that is what the SS judge wants, Myler disabilty has done a great job, I e-mail them with Names, addresses, phone and fax numbers they have attained everything for me and I have the same attorney from my first hearing on my second hearing. :( :(

Amazed at Myler Jackasses........I want to make sure I understand your complaint. I am very confused.

Basically what your saying is that you paid into SSI with your "hard earned money", filed a claim ( hiring Myler to represent you) and were denied 3 years later because "they failed in the initial court case?"

W H A T?

First of all, take some accountability! Why would YOU continue on for 3 years if the company "failed the initial court case?" Seems to me like that would be a perfect time to part ways.

Secondly, your upset because after 3 years and apparently 1 court appearance a company YOU hired wants to be paid? Yeah, that sounds totally unreasonable to me.

All sarcasm aside, I know most of these complaints are fueled by people feeling desperate and frustrated. When social security denies a claim, it feels like all hope is lost. The truth of the matter is social security is not a means to an end and it certainly is not a fair, fast or just system.

When it does "pay off" it doesn't pay much. The best option, as always, is to work.

I believe that's why we need disability is cuz we can't work.duh that's why its called disability cuz not everyone's lucky enough to be able to work. Some people can't walk or talk and some people can't stand long or people like me can't be out long cuz they have bad seizures.

We just became aware of this obscure website and these review but want out clients to know that we are seriously committed to helping you win your case.

I have told them four times already in no uncertain terms I will not communicate in any other way other than email (mainly due to the numerous complaints I have heard) and they refuse. I am firing them.

They say they have an urgent matter to discuss. If it is so urgent why can they not email me? I will not talk to them on the phone again. This place really leaves a lot to be desired.

I have spent a lot of time and they have not helped me fill out paperwork or contact SSA for me or anything.

They want me to do everything. So what should I need them for if they won't help???

Myler Disability - No contact from lawyer

We're sad to see this person so upset with our office. We'd be happy to address his/her concerns and would encourage him/her to give us a call at 1-800-652-9626. We'd like to hear more detail in regards to what we may have done that “screwed this up.” It's quite likely that there's a misunderstanding in regards to what you're required to provide to Social Security, even if you do have an attorney. Also, we find it very unlikely that you can't get ahold of your case worker. We answer most calls as they come in and if you have to leave a message, we call back as soon as we can, always within 1 business day. Please give us a call.

I hired this company to help me file for SSI; not only was I denied while using this group, but I had to do all the paperwork myself. I had to deal with social security with no coaching or advice.

I was left hanging. When I attempted to speak with a human instead of a voice mail I was on hold forever and they had to route me through three different people before I was able to speak with someone. All in all, this has been a very difficult and negative experience.

I'm currently trying to find someone local that can fix this group's mess so I can get back on track. They really screwed this up.

How can you be denied twice, the first time you have a lawyer and the second time you have the same lawyer. Your fee agreement tells you what you will be paying for.

The first time it went to court it was $6,0000. two years later it is $8,000.00 it is 25% of back pay. You need to go to SS on line and figure your benefit. It will give you your total back pay amount and your monthly amount.

You just need to research whats available. :cry

Boy they couldn't wait to chase my ambulance when I got turned down for disability the first time. I wasted a year dealing with these people, and when I finally got my hearing I got stuck with a lame lawyer who did nothing but hurt my case in front of a witch-hunting judge that totally ripped my case apart.

They actually had the nerve to send me a bill for around fifty bucks for paperwork that I could have done myself.

Haven't heard from them since and it would be in their best interest if they just stayed away. Bad news!!

Just the fact that most of the people on that standard release form won't give their last name, just an initial. One of the people's name was just "Partner".

I've only got to the 4th page of their application and after reading some of the other reviews and looking at the names of the people on other pages giving great reviews of Myler, they match up! And the same giving bad reviews so they can post a good review under it!!! Something doesn't smell right!

Something needs to be Done about them like calling the Utah General Attorney! Please people.
