How Can I Afford Legal Fees?

For SSD claims and SSI problems, Social security has to approve any fee between and attorney and a claimant. A lawyer doesn’t get paid unless the client wins. If they don’t win they don’t get paid anything. Our fees are standard nation wide. At the hearing level if your past due benefits at 30,000 we get 6,000. If you don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything. It is free to come see us. If you win at the initial level, the hearing level, the max amount of attorney’s fee is $6,000. If you go to appeals counsel or fed court they can still not exceed 25% of your past due benefits. If you win, you can ask the court to award Equal Access Justice Act Fees. They are awarded against the government for not finding you disabled from the get go. In the end, if you don’t win you don’t owe us anything!
