I’m disabled and not working.
How can I afford to pay for an attorney?
There is no fee unless you win.
Attorney fees in social security cases are a percentage of the back pay you are awarded when you win your case.
- By the time you have your hearing, you will almost certainly be eligible for “retroactive” or back pay. The attorney fee is 25% of that back pay, up to a maximum of $6000.
- If you return to work, decide not to pursue your case, or are unsuccessful at your hearing, there is no attorney fee. You will never receive a bill from my office for attorney fees.
- You are responsible for the costs of obtaining medical records for the hearing. Many of my clients minimize these expenses by requesting records directly from their hospitals and physicians.
