What is a contingency fee?

Contingency fees are most easily described as your lawyer does't get paid unless you win. For Social Security Disability and Veterans Benefit cases the work done by The Herron Law Firm is on a contingency fee basis.


How much are the fees?

For social security clients the contingency fee is set by the Social Security Administration.  Currently the fee allowed is 25% of past due benefits with a maximum allowed fee of $6,000.

For Veterans Benefit cases decided at the agency level the fee charged is 20% of past due benefits.



How are fees paid?

For both social security and veterans cases the fees are withheld from past due benefits and sent to The Herron Law Firm directly.  There is no need for you as the client to make any direct payment to my office except for court costs and certain expenses during your case.



I hope this helps you understand more about contingency fees.  Again they mean that if you don't win then you won't owe any attorney fees.  As always the initial consultation with The Herron Law Firm is free of charge and can be done either by phone or in person.  Contact us today to schedule your consultation and begin the process of getting benefits you deserve.
