What does it cost?
In a Social Security Disability case, if you don’t win, you pay no legal fees. We strictly adhere to the Social Security Administration’s guidelines for attorney fees. Those guidelines stipulate that an attorney cannot charge more than 25% of back due benefits, up to a maximum of $6,000, if the case does not proceed beyond the Administrative Law Judge level.
Simply put, there is no charge unless we are successful for you.
Fees in cases that are successful beyond the ALJ level at the Appeals Council or in Federal Court are determined by the judge who makes the final decision. These fees, again, will not exceed 25% of back due benefits.
Your Local ADA Lawyers
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects people with disabilities from discrimination in the workplace, or in the job application process. In keeping with this law, employers cannot discriminate against an employee or applicant due to a physical or mental impairment. Businesses and government facilities also must provide accommodations for people with disabilities, such as wheelchair access ramps, or handicapped parking spaces and restrooms.
In addition to our work as long term disability lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, we help residents of Berks County, Bucks County, Chester County, Montgomery County, and Delaware County, PA, as well as Camden, NJ, and all of Southern New Jersey who would like to file an ADA discrimination claim.
