A: I assume you are looking for a pro bono lawyer because of your ability to pay an attorney out of your pocket at this time. The good news is that social security disability attorneys typically work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid IF they win you benefits...and the pay comes out of retroactive money that you receive as part of your reward. Typically, an attorney will receive 25% (but no more than $6000) from these past benefits. The attorney takes nothing from your awarded monthly check that you receive in the future. Those benefits are all for you. If you would like to discuss your case, our office has an entire social security disability department dedicated to obtaining benefits for people just like yourself. If anything, please feel free to call and ask us any questions you is a FREE consultation.
