Our law firm earns money the old-fashioned way: We earn it. We do not charge hourly attorney fees. We do not charge retainer fees. We do not charge up-front fees. And even if we win, our payment comes directly from the settlement or verdict in your favor.
How much will you be paid if we win? That depends on the details of your case, such as the nature and extent of your injuries in an auto accident or due to a defective drug. More severe injuries may mean higher payments.
If you were injured in a car accident, at work or by a defective drug then this applies to you. We work on a contingency fee basis. That means we aren’t paid unless we win a case for you. Our attorney fees are paid from the settlement we gain for you and not directly by you. And most of that settlement goes to you.
Social Security Disability
How much are such attorney fees? The SSA will pay us 25 percent of the back payments (past-due benefits) that you’re granted, with a cap of $6,000.
Such back payments for SSI are the money you’re owed for the time between your filing of a claim and the time it was approved. For SSDI, back payments are what you’re owed from the onset of your disability to your claim’s approval, with a 12-month maximum.
Perhaps you need our help filing a claim or an appeal for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In that case, attorney fees are capped by law. And again, we’re paid only from the settlement in your favor, not from your pocket.
Instead, the Social Security Administration will pay us if your claim is approved. And we’ll be paid nothing if it’s not.
The Bottom Line – You Pay Nothing Unless We Win
Whether you need our help following a car wreck, an injury by a defective drug or product or after being denied disability benefits, you know where you stand. You know we won’t be paid unless we win for you, and we’ll only be paid from the settlement and not directly by you.
