Most disabled people assume that they would have to pay a lawyer an hourly fee to collect disability benefits. No one wants to take on that type of financial obligation, especially if they can no longer work and earn a living.
The lawyers of Chermol & Fishman, LLC, represent disabled people on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay nothing up front and nothing at all unless we win benefits in your Social Security claim.
Our fees are a percentage (25%) of whatever back benefits we obtain for you. Your future benefits are all yours.
You have extra protection in claims. The government generally caps the amount of money an attorney can receive at 25 percent of past due benefits or $6,000 — whichever is less. You don’t have to worry about fees at all. The Social Security Administration pays us directly after we win your case.
Past due benefits are calculated from the date your application was filed. That could be weeks, months or years before your claim is approved.
Because fees are capped at 25% of past due benefits, it costs the same to hire a good lawyer as it does a bad one. Why not be represented by former SSA attorneys who really know the system from the inside? Our decades of experience and knowledge could be the difference in getting you the SSD and SSI benefits you deserve.
Hiring an attorney can significantly increase your chances of having your claim approved. To discuss your case, please contact our office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Call us at (215) 464-7200. We’re here to help.
