How to Pay for a Social Security Disability Lawyer
Contingency fee for Florida Social Security Disability & SSI
The Florida Social Security Disability and SSI attorneys led by John V. Tucker represent Social Security Disability clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that we charge a fee based on a percentage of past-due benefits that you recover for our time. We advance out-of-pocket costs for things like charges for getting your medical records or fees that doctors charge for filling out forms, and settle up with you for these costs at the end of the case.
How do you benefit from a contingency fee? Two ways:
- You do not need to come up with any upfront money to get your case started; it does not cost you a penny to hire our St. Petersburg/Tampa, Florida Social Security Disability law firm.
- Perhaps more importantly, our firm has “some skin in the game.” We have a strong incentive to help you win your case, because we only get paid if you win. If you do not win, we do not get paid for many hours of time that are spent preparing your case and handling your hearing.
We also offer a free consultation and, unlike most other law firms or claimant’s representatives, we will help you file your application for Social Security Disability online if you sign up as a client of our firm. Again, there is no upfront charge for this, so let us help you with your claim. Social Security’s own statistics show that people with an attorney win more often than those who do not have an attorney.
If you believe we can be of assistance in helping you obtain Social Security disability benefits in Florida, please contact us. Please take advantage of the firm’s free consultation. Our offices in the Tampa Bay area offer a central location to assist Social Security claimants throughout Florida. Our office is staffed to handle much of your claim over the phone, by email, and by mail, so you do not need to drive to our offices unless you want to, and we can meet with you in your hometown. We can even do a video conference over Skype instead of talking on the phone if you have a webcam. While many of our clients are in the vicinity of St. Petersburg, Dunedin, Largo, New Port Richey, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg, Brandon, and Tampa, we currently have clients in most of the counties in Florida.
