Attorney‘s Fees And Costs
You Owe Us Nothing Unless You Win Your Case
Attorney‘s fees should not be an impediment to following your case to resolution. If you do not win your case after we work with you, we will not charge you an attorney’s fee. You will owe us nothing, no matter how much work we have done to help you.
How Does The Firm Make Money?
Federal law provides that attorney’s fees must be recovered as a percentage of any past due amount awarded to you. The fee in every case must be approved by a judge or the Social Security Administration before it is paid. You do not have to worry about the fee involved or prepay the attorney’s fee, since we receive nothing until you receive a check for benefits due to you. The fee is withheld from your past-due benefits or “back pay” and is paid directly to our firm by the Social Security Administration.
The only exception is with certain disability cessation cases or certain special fee contract situations.
The costs in a case are separate from an attorney’s fee. The fee does not include our costs, and the Social Security Administration does not pay our costs.
We cannot give you an accurate estimate of the costs in your case, such as for medical records and reports. Each case is different. However, our firm pays these costs and you must agree to repay us for these costs in your case. Of course, you also must pay for your own medical treatment.
