Didn't get past the initial screening call(s). This is a law firm?? It felt more like a penny stock boiler room. Sad what our profession has come to in some places, like this. I'm general counsel of an investment firm with a lot of big and small legal issues, so I deal with a very large number of law firms and lawyers across the spectrum, and this was the worst excuse for a legal intake process I have ever encountered. So I will take my family's issue elsewhere.

so far , they dont return calls , got denied WITH LAWYER ( att B.Shapiro) , I DONT know how I could possibly get denied .now waiting for retun calls that never come , lawyer Shapiro NEVER RETURNS MULTIPLE CALLS . you get no response from heard & smith , all I have gotten is the run around so far , If I end up with a differant outcome I'l retract this review, but I'm seeking help from a QUALIFIED ATT. NOW . TIRED OF THE HEARD & SMITH RUN-AROUND . find a differant att. who handles their business professionally , this group does NOT.

I am one of the lawyers mentioned in ??Rodeoqueen??s? review posted on 08/21/08. As with all things in life, there is another side to this story. Rodeoqueen and her sister were the opposing parties in this matter and lost the case. Naturally, they did not like us -- we were the opposing lawyers. We won the case for our client. As lawyers, we are used to seeing anger and resentment when we defeat the other side in court.

Rodeoqueen and her sister challenged every action our client, the executor, took in the estate ?? from the very first hearing to the very last ?? even the smallest issue was opposed. Had they not opposed every proceeding, expenses could have been drastically reduced. As we do with all of our clients, we represented our client in this case effectively and zealously. The Court ruled in our client's favor, she received the inheritance that she was entitled to receive and she has not stopped thanking us.

I don't understand how these other posters had bad experiences with Heard and Smith. They helped me win my benefits! I was referred from my cousin who also won his benefits with Mr. Heard. I tried to do the application on my own, but was sent a denial. I didn't know what the process was so I thought that was it. Turns out there was a deadline to appeal. That's when I knew I needed professional help and glad that I picked Heard and Smith. They took the time to educate me about the process, gave me resources to get medical treatment and food stamps, and took care of all the forms that I needed to fill out. I'm glad they filled out those forms because I have Carpal Tunnel and it is hard to hold a pen for over 5 minutes. To sum it all up, I got my benefits after 5 months because they submitted a dire need letter for me to expedite my award. I now have my own place and able to live on my own. Thanks Heard and Smith. I'm forever grateful

You have been warned. Stay the hell away from Mark Smith and Clayton Mankser. These two charged my mothers estate over $17,000 and did nothing. They got two of my mothers properties condemned because they did not meet with the city. They charged the estate for services they did not perform. They created anomosity between my sister and I so they could steal from us. They will bill you for every phone call down to the penny. They dragged my probate case out for almost a year and a half now and it is still going on. My mothers probate was a simple case and could have been handled in a few months. Every attorney I called to represent me said to talk to my sister to get them off of the case because they are snakes.

I am warning you now......STAY AWAY. It is attorneys like them that give attorneys a bad name. They will have you and your siblings fighting each other while they laugh all the way to the bank.
