Finding the Best Social Security Lawyers in Huntington Beach –
Finding Lawyers for Huntington Beach Social Security Cases
If you are applying for Social Security Disability, you are not required to hire a lawyer to represent you in your SSDI case. However, it is important to understand that SSDI applicants who hire an attorney statistically have a better chance of being approved for Social Security. Having a lawyer represent you is especially important at the hearing level – in order to increase your chances of collecting the maximum benefits.
If you have been made disabled by an injury or illness, and you are thinking about retaining an attorney for your Huntington Beach Social Security Disability case, here are some things to look at when choosing an attorney for your case.
What to Seek in a Huntington Beach Social Security Lawyer
Find a Lawyer Who Gives Free Consultation & Answers Questions For Your Huntington Beach Social Security Case
Social Security Disability attorneys should always give a free consultation and should not charge you for the initial consultation. Another sign of a good lawyer is someone who takes the time to ask about your unique situation and then thoroughly explain your legal rights and options. A qualified lawyer will always take the amount of time as necessary to answer any and all of your questions about your SSDI case.
Our experienced lawyers are compassionate listeners who offer a free consultation to clients in Social Security Disability cases. We truly care about each and every one of our disability clients – and we have dedicated our law practice to obtaining compensation for deserving disabled individuals. We promisee to patiently answer any questions you may have, and work our hardest to obtain the SSD benefits that you deserve.
Find a Lawyer Who Collects Legal Fees Only if You Win
Your Huntington Beach Social Security Case
The laws governing how much an SSDI lawyer can charge in a case are very straightforward. An attorney is only allowed to collect lawyers fees to 25% of the “back pay” or “past due benefits” that are paid to the client – up to a maximum of $6,000. And, if no Social Security back payments are paid to the applicant, the lawyer does collect a fee.
Protect yourself by making sure that your SSDI lawyer only charges the fees that are allowed by Social Security law. If your attorney tries to collect more than 25% of your back pay – or more than $6000 – they are acting unethically.
Find a Lawyer Who Handles 100% Disability Cases
For Your Huntington Beach Social Security Case
If the lawyer you are considering handles many different types of cases, it is unlikely that they will be specialized in Social Security law. “General practice” lawyers who take a variety of cases in a variety of fields simply are not able to keep up with all of the changes in Social Security law. At the law firm of Cantrell Green, our lawyers only handle disability cases. We do not handle criminal cases, divorces, or any other types of cases that are not related to disability law.
We firmly believe that only those lawyers who commit their entire legal practice to disability law will be able to keep up with all the latest SSDI regulations – and will develop the experience and the expertise needed to ensure that every SSD claimant gets the maximum benefits they deserve in their Huntington Beach Social Security Case.
