Lawyer's fees out of backpay
I have a question I'd like to ask.
Has anyone been approved while waiting for a hearing after they have hired a lawyer?
We were so lucky that this happened for us, and I am grateful
However, we found out that our lawyer took the entire 5,300 he could possibly take from us,based on our contract with him. The fact that he did not have to prepare us for,or attend a hearing made no difference in what he took out of our check.
At this point, I am glad to be approved and to have recieved my backpay.
I am just wondering if all lawyers "take advantage" of people like this, or if it was just my lawyer who did this.
Thanks for any and all replies -Rachel
