Two Lawyers Collected $88M In Fees Guiding Disabled Social Security Applicants
The Wall Street Journal: Two Lawyers Strike Gold In U.S. Disability System
Lawyers Harry and Charles Binder began representing applicants for Social Security disability benefits in the 1970s, when the field was a professional backwater. Last year, their firm collected $88 million in fees for guiding clients through the system, government data indicate, making it the nation's largest Social Security disability advocate by far (Paletta and Searcey, 12/22).
