Social Security

More details to this question:
Found ad on T.V. (Levine and Benjamin) and spoke with Attorney Bimberg who agreed to take my case. Almost immediately I received notice that my case was being referred to another attorney in the firm other than Attorney Bimberg who I originally spoke with.. I was referred to lawyer Jason Steinhelper an associate, who did not call except for once; this being after he received notice that I hired his law firm and that my case had been referred to him.Never heard from him again for months so I called the day before court date. His secretary phoned me on my cell phone as I was en-route and told me he would be there. I was instructed to arrive one hour before court and he showed up 16 minutes before court was to begin. Even then he was not prepared and could not download CD with medical information on it. He sat there pretty much silent throughout.the hearing. I would like to find another attorney but at this point I feel it is pretty much hopeless.

Anytime you have hired an attorney, you should report to them or their supervisor if you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received.  I recommend that as your first step.

If your hearing has been held and you don't have a decision, do what I have suggested above and wait for the decision.  If it is favorable, you worried for nothing.  If not, you have options.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security
Social Security is a federal government program, primarily funded through payroll taxes, that provides an array of benefits to retired workers, the survivors of workers, the disabled and low-income families. Social Security attorneys typically work with one of two groups of clients. Many Social Security lawyers focus their practices on working with those whose applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) have been denied. These attorneys assist clients at eligibility hearings and throughout the appeals process. Other Social Security law firms represent those who have been accused of Social Security fraud and those who are victims of Social Security fraud.
