Myler Disability's reply to:

Myler Disability - Incompetence

While this client was unhappy with how her hearing went, there's little that our attorney could have done to stop the judge from conducting the hearing in the way he saw fit. The judge had a number of questions that he wanted answered and even though our client had a hard time responding to these questions, they needed to be answered. Fortunately, her case was approved. It's very likely that the difficulty she experienced helped show the judge that she was unable to sustain full time work. Here at Myler Disability, we try hard to prepare our clients for their disability hearing and we stand by their side throughout the entire process.

I hired Myler in 2011 to try to help me get approved for disability due to mental health issues. After we finally get to court in 2014, the judge proceeded to yell at me through the entire session, treating me like a criminal and Myler's attorney did nothing to stop it.

I had to answer rapid fire questioning under so much duress I was literally sobbing in the court room and could not think clearly at all. The attorney sat by and allowed this to continue. Did I get a fair hearing? NO.

Myler's attorney did nothing but sit there. I would have had the SAME outcome WITHOUT Myler. I didn't get proper representation.

I didn't have someone to speak on my behalf, no advocate. I had a lump with a briefcase.

haha!! You are a fraud!

Grow a pair and quit trying to blame your problems on everyone else! So what that the judge yelled at you!!! Do you think the lawyer can actually stop that from happening? You're right in that you would have been yelled at with our without a lawyer there.

But how is that his/her fault?

I have heard about this company and was doing a little research about them. After reading some of these comments, I'm convinced that most of you are whiny people who probably aren't disabled. You are what is wrong with the system.

There are hundreds of thousands of people applying for benefits every year that probably aren't deserving of them. When they lose, they want to blame anyone but themselves.

I wasn't going to hire these guys, but maybe I will now. The bad complaints seem to be baseless and the positive reviews seem to be sincere.

I'm sure I'll have hiccups with them from time to time if this process takes as long as everyone says it does. But that's what happens when you work with someone weekly for 2 years.

Maybe I'll win my case, and maybe I won't. I have supportive doctors (I think) and if I have a representative that is experienced with doing this stuff, I think my chances are pretty good.

You suppose to do your own paperwork, you no more about your situation then Myler does. I'm go to stick with them for myself and see what happens.

I am a 30 year old female. I have Refractory (drug resistant) Epilepsy and I require brain surgery and a service dog.

I am grossly disappointed with Myler Disability and I do not recommend the to represent you. They did not advocate on myself and seemingly know nothing about Disability. My case work was excellent at paper work, but my lawyer was a complete flop. My Social Security case was completely mishandled.

Not only by Myler but the entire system.

I had to get my Congressman involved because I found the actions of the ALJ to me questionable and unethical. My lawyer told me not to involve my Congressman when my first third hearing was cancelled.

Who is the mystical magical Brad Myler?

Has anybody ever spoken to him? If you are truly disabled you are just going to have to advocate for your self. Learn about the PASS program and tax deductions. It's a complicated system, but if you spend the time researching S.S and put Myler in their place you might get somewhere.

My second third hearing is in 2015.

I have a new Judge and a new Lawyer from Myler and I am prepared for any question about anything. I refuse to be a victim.

Only I can keep my head above water.

Wish me luck because only I can make my own path.

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.

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,,,

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!

We are unable to verify if this is a review from a client we've represented. We just became aware of this obscure website and the reviews that are here, so this is our first opportunity to address this. We had been unaware of any complaint like this, and since it has been 3 ½ years since this was posted, we strongly suspect this was just a person venting their frustration that Social Security isn't able to pay them more in monthly benefits. While we understand the frustration that can come from this, we can't change how much you worked in the past or how much you contributed to Social Security. What we can do is offer you excellent representation. Here, while the person may be upset, we did win the case and got them the benefits they were seeking.

The lawyers that were assigned to my husband continued to change every three months and when we finally were able to go in front of a judge. He was not prepared and the judge was extremely angry with him.

He was wasting his time so, he took the judgement out on my husband. He didn't get disability but SSI. You can't live on that... My husband tired to get another attorney to go back to the judge but no other attorney will deal with the situation.

We are getting ready to sue Brad Myler and the attorney that didn't do his job.

The attorney's at Myler will not even return are calls.. So, we are going to file a claim against them in Utah.....

2 years ago, I hired Myler Disability for my legal representation for SSI. They are a joke!!

Every month, the changed Case Managers. They wont return phone calls, & when you do reach a Case Manager, they sound like they are reading from a script. I suffer from ptsd, bipolar, depression, I also have hypertension, have had 3 tia's, and I have back & knee problems. The *** attorney that was assigned to my case didnt even contact me until the day before court.

All he told me was that it was dress casual & to be there 30 minutes early. He didnt go over any part of my case. He had not even looked at my case, until we got to court. The judge called us in 5 minutes after we got there, so my genius of an attorney didnt have time to look at it.

He even asked me what my name was. Needless to say, I got denied, so Myler Disability withdrew from my case. I had lost my job, due to my illness, had to stay with friends or family. I was even homeless at one point.

I just hired an attorney that I can call anytime & he will speak to me about my case. Oh & when Myler Disability withdrew, they had the nerve to send me a bill, which I will not pay one dime to them.

I have very similar disabilities and issues. I used mylar, it took 2 years...not myler's fault, that is actually 6 months less than normal for this part of Florida, but they got me SSI and ssdi plus I only filled out forms once or twice.

If you didn't get what you thought was coming talk to your doctor. They have the controlling information the law office just puts it together.

Like did you have a letter from your doctor stating you could not return to the workforce? With your prognosis and diagnosis?

You will always be denied the first time. I got denied the first time and 2 years later I still have the same attorney, who knows both judges I have.

As far as time frame in the court, the first one like I said you will be denied and you spend very little time in the court room, the second one you have an hour in court and it is much more detailed and you speak. Don't give up.

I had the same problem with Brad Myler. They declined waiver fees.

I found a way around them. Contact your local Social Security Office (Disability dept) Tell them you are having problems with the waiver fees and Brad Myler. Ask them if you can file a "right to withdraw representation letter". I am not sure if all states allow this.

But if they do. Just ask them how to do this. Once you do this, verify it has been scanned into their system. You can get a new attorney this way.

But you have a short time to do this! You will also need to let your new attorney know and send them a copy of this letter. Also one needs to go to Brad Myler but I would wait till you get the rest of them sent and verified first. This only allows you to get a new attorney.

It is up to the hearing judge if how much he will allow in fees to be paid to Brad Myler. Hope this helps everyone who is having this issue. I was waiting for 2 years.

By the way, this is standard wait time in most cases, but Brad Myler drags it out so they get more money from all that back pay you are getting from waiting each month. Sad but true....

It took them 3 years to get my husband $156.00 a month but didn't go after the real problem that was to get his Disability case re-opened. The case was turned over to six different attorneys before it went in front of a judge.

They agreed to SSI and didn't discuss with my husband what he was giving up. So, now that we are understanding what SSI is really about we can't get Myler to go back in front of the judge and no other attorney will touch the case. So, if Mr. Brad Myler reads these complaints I just want to let you know that your firm is full of attorneys that don't really care about anyone.

Your company has made it so that my family has been destroyed and that in order for us to survive that I will have to divorce my husband so, he can get help to take care of all his medical bills. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS YOUR JOB! SO I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!!!! MR.

I chose to work here about a year ago when the economy was really, really bad here. It was the only job that I could find.

Right away, I could tell this company did not give a hoot about their employees. Women at the office usually got stuck with more work than their male counterparts, whom the female managers loved to flirt with. I knew as soon as I could find another job, I was out of there.

Because the environment there was so negative in general, the employees that came to work everyday and do the MAJORITY of work on your SS case (and they do not need a college degree) could care less about the client and we would do the bare minimum on your case--we were getting paid $8.50/hr.

We would get the information that we needed, get your medical records and talk to you more than the attorney on your SS case will.

Bottom line: If you win, you will give this law firm 40% of your SS award back pay, and the attorney spent 5 hrs on your case from start to finish. The majority of your case was handled by a 20-year old kid.

Good luck!
