Can hiring an attorney make a difference in winning my case?


Presenting a case to the Administration can be a very complex high stakes event.  For a taste of what you are getting into, just review question #3 above.  Based on the Administration’s own statistics, if an attorney represents you, your odds of winning at the hearing level are 70%.  Only 33% of unrepresented people win at hearing.  Normally, people are represented on a “contingency fee” basis.  This means that they only pay a fee if the attorney wins their case.  By SSA rules, the contingent fee is 25% of the back payments subject to a set maximum of $6,000.00.
