No matter whom you choose for your representation, the fee will be the same unless the attorney chooses to file a Fee Petition. This is only done in a small number of cases.
At Peggy L. Stevens Law Office, we use a standard Retainer Agreement which allows a fee of 25% of past due benefits up to $6,000. This amount is set by the government. There is no payment of fees unless you are awarded disability benefits. If a Fee Petition is used, the attorney bills for work performed at an hourly rate. The Administrative Law Judge must approve all fees.
