Aren’t lawyers expensive to hire? How can I hire a qualified Arlington social security lawyer?

Most people can actually afford a social security lawyer, even those without jobs. In most every case, social security lawyers work on a “contingency” fee. That means they only get paid if you win your social security benefits claim. Social Security regulations set a cap for attorney fees. As of June 2009, the cap is $6,000. Also, attorneys can only receive their money from the past due benefits awarded to you, a max of 25%. So, the most a social security lawyer can charge is: the smaller amount of 25% of your past due benefits or $6,000. Contacting you Arlington Social Security lawyer is as easy as filling out the questionnaire on the left.

Its important to understand which one you may qualify for.
