Your Disability Attorney Gets Paid on a Contingent Fee Basis
Your disability attorney doesn’t ask for money upfront or halfway through the case or even at the start of the Social Security disability appeal process. We get paid on a contingent fee basis. The word contingent literally means “dependent on,” and contingent fee means exactly what you might guess. Our legal counseling fee depends completely on the outcome of your case. If the court sees it fit to award you with Social Security disability, then we get paid. If you don’t get benefits and we couldn’t help you, then we don’t get paid either. This ensures that we have your best interests at heart because they are also our interests. Plus, we know how devastating it can feel to have your claim denied. Asking for a fee would only add insult to injury.
How Much Does an Attorney Cost?
Disability lawyers are mandated to charge on a contingency basis and to charge only a certain percentage of your benefits. If the Social Security Administration awards you disability benefits, then we can charge no more than 25% of your awarded back pay or $6,000. Luckily, a lawyer can only charge the lesser of the two. If 25% of your back pay equals $2,000, then your disability attorney cannot legally ask for $6,000. On the other hand, the cannot ask for more than $6,000 even if 25% of your back pay is more than that. If you have spoken to an attorney who tried to charge you before your application or said their fee was more than $6,000, leave their office immediately. They cannot lawfully charge you in those ways.
