You Pay Nothing Up Front with Contingency Fees
Our Tulsa Firm Charges No Social Security Disability Attorney Fees Unless You Win
At Troutman & Troutman, our top priority is getting you the full amount of Social Security disability benefits to which you are entitled. We help people obtain the benefits they need and deserve. Because of this, we work on a contingency fee basis.
Limited financial resources should not be a roadblock to Social Security benefits. If you are entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you deserve to have an experienced Oklahoma disability lawyer on your side — without having to worry about paying Social Security disability attorney fees up front.
How Does a Contingency Fee Work? Social Security Attorney Fees
Upon successful resolution of your case, a percentage of your Social Security disability award will go toward our firm’s attorney fees. Our fee agreement is governed by the Social Security Regulations, and it limits the fee for work performed by Social Security attorneys to 25 percent of past-due benefits, or $6,000, whichever is less.
Typically, the Social Security Administration (SSA) deducts attorney fees from the past-due benefits awarded and pays our firm directly. If for any reason the SSA does not pay the full amount directly, the client is responsible for paying the difference. The Social Security Administration must approve the contingency fee and only pays attorney fees from past-due benefits, not from ongoing monthly payments.
If we are not successful in obtaining a favorable decision from SSA, we do not collect any attorney fees. However, if we are successful in your case but there are no past-due benefits, SSA can decide to award us with a reasonable fee based on the work we performed. In such a case, SSA personnel determine the amount of the fee. This situation most commonly occurs in overpayment cases in which there are no past-due benefits if we win your case.
What Costs Are Not Included in the Contingency Fee?
It is important to note that costs related to obtaining medical records, medical opinions, work records as well as costs for copying and postage typically are not included in the contingency fee and may be billed directly to the client regardless of the outcome of the case. At our Tulsa Social Security disability law firm, we strive to keep costs down for our clients by working as efficiently and effectively as possible.
