Social Security Disability Lawyer Contingency Fees

If you’re concerned about whether or not you can afford to hire a disability lawyer, don’t be.

The Social Security Attorneys at Nolan & Shafer PLC work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we are only paid if, and when, you are granted Social Security Disability benefits. If your claim isn’t approved at any point in the process, you won’t pay us a fee.

There’s no upfront cost to hire a top disability lawyer. When you hire your lawyer, you’ll sign a “contingency fee agreement” that will set forth the exact terms of their payment.

These fee agreements have to be submitted to and approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The Social Security Administration itself sets forth the language that attorneys should use if they want the Social Security Administration to approve their fee agreement. You can read that language for yourself here.

So the takeaway is this: we only get a fee if we win your case and if there are back benefits. Even then, our fee is only a small portion of your back benefits in most cases (25% of the back benefits or $6,000.00, whichever is less).

Whether we are filing your application or presenting your case to an Administrative Law Judge, we are dedicated to helping you every step of the way.
