How Much Will A Disability Attorney Cost Me?
Watch this video by dedicated Buffalo disability attorney Ida Comerford, Esq. as she explains how much it will cost to hire a disability attorney.
Attorneys in the Social Security arena get paid on what we call a contingency basis. That means that we only get paid if our client’s case wins. The fee is typically 25% of the past-due benefits. There’s a limitation called a fee cap that applies if the case is won at or below the hearing level.
That should not be the main question. The main question should be does your attorney continue your appeal beyond the hearing level? But it’s important to know that the fee is 25% of your past due benefits limited to the fee cap. The interesting thing about Social Security attorney fees is that our fee only comes from your past-due benefits. Although you will win past due and future benefits, we don’t receive any payment from your future benefits. You will also receive health insurance if you win, and we don’t receive any fee for that.
So really, a fee of 25% of your past-due benefits is probably the best bargain in the legal industry. Other attorneys in different arenas will get 33% of a person’s full winnings. So comparatively, it’s quite a bargain in the legal industry. I’d love to talk to you more about what our firm can do to help you win benefits and talk to you very frankly about the fees involved.
