Why You Pay Nothing Upfront

When you aren’t bringing in a regular paycheck because health problems make it impossible to work, paying expensive attorney fees seems out of the question.

You may be struggling to cover basic expenses like food, housing and transportation, much less worrying about getting a lawyer.

So it’s important to understand this: The only time you pay a fee is after you win benefits.

We start out by working for you for free, so you don’t have to empty your life savings or max out your credit cards paying a lawyer retainer fee.

How We Get Paid When You Win Benefits

If we win Social Security Disability benefits for you, we get paid according to a fee agreement approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

This is how it works:

  • Our payment comes from the past due benefits the SSA owes you. Usually, you’ve been waiting a while by the time you win benefits. Social Security pays you for that time, going back to the date you first reported that health problems forced you from work. Paying for your lawyer out of this past due money means that when you start getting monthly disability checks going forward — nothing will be deducted for the cost of your lawyer.
  • And there are limits on how much of your back benefits we can collect in a fee. It’s capped at 25% of your past due benefits up to a maximum of $7,200.

If, after exhausting all the appeals steps, you’re denied by Social Security again, you still don’t owe us a fee. The only thing you might have to pay are reimbursements for the costs of obtaining medical records.

Before you start working with us, you can also get us to review your situation for free.
