Hire a Lawyer for a Santa Ana Social Security Case
A person applying for Social Security Disability is not required to hire a lawyer to represent them in their case. However, statistically it has been demonstrated that applicants using an attorney have a greater chance of being approved for Social Security than those claimants who do not have a lawyer. This is especially true at the hearing level of the SSDI claim.
If you are disabled due to an accident, injury or illness – and you are considering hiring a lawyer for your Santa Ana Social Security Disability case – here are some pointers to help you select the best Social Security Disability attorney for your case.
What to Look for in a Santa Ana Social Security Lawyer
Hire a Lawyer Who Offers a Free Consultation & Answers Your Questions For Your Santa Ana Social Security Case
An reputable Social Security Disability attorney will never charge you for the initial consultation in an SSD case. He or she should also take the time to understand your individual situation and medical issues, and address any concerns you may have. A good lawyer will always take as much time as necessary to answer all of your questions – without rushing you.
At the law firm of Cantrell Green, our compassionate lawyers offer a free consultation to clients in Social Security Disability cases.Our lawyers are deeply concerned about each individual client. We have committed our legal careers to helping disabled individuals. You have our word that we will always be available to patiently answer as many questions as you have – at any step of your SSD case.
Hire a Lawyer Who Only Collects Attorney Fees if You Win
Your Santa Ana Social Security Case
A formula determines how much lawyer fees will be in a Social Security case. The law allow layers to charge 25% of the “back payments” that are paid by the SSA to their client. And there is a maximum of $6,000. Additionally, if no back payments are awarded to the applicant, then the SSD lawyer cannot collect attorney fees.
Make sure you understand this formula so that your lawyer only collects the attorney fees that are allowed by Social Security law. If a Social Security lawyer tries to collect more than 25% of your “back pay” and/or more than $6,000, they are overcharging and are not acting ethically.
