Lawyers cost too much, how would I afford to pay a social security lawyer?

Although attorneys can be expensive, a social security attorney is affordable, even for someone who does not have a job. Why? Social Security attorneys only get paid if you get paid. This fee structure is called a “contingency” fee. The social security system oversees the amount a social security attorney can charge. For example, they are capped at making 25% of the back pay awarded to you. Even then, they can only make a maximum of $6,000 on your case.Don’t wait to contact an experienced Amarillo Social Security lawyer. Fill out the form on the left.
