Re: Lawyer fee?

By Federal Law, a lawyer may not charge more than 25% or some $5,000 regardless of the state you live in. A lawyer may charge you for some misc. fees but they can not be extreme and SS automatically takes your lawyer fees out of your award and pays them directly. If you are being charged more you need to contact Social Security

Re: Lawyer fee?

Kissa is correct, and the cap is 25% to a MAXIMUM of $5300.
