That depends upon the facts, and all we know is only what you have written, which is not enough to conclude that something even can be done. When you have a legal problem, you need to speak with an attorney.

Q: How much can a disability attorney retain once a social security disability claim has been approved?

1 Answer | Asked in Social Security for Missouri on May 21, 2015

Answered on Jun 5, 2015

Follow Question


Cheryl F Coon's answer
Fortunately for social Security disability clients, the law is very clear. Unless you and your lawyer agree to a different fee, your lawyer is limited to 25% of past-due benefits, with a cap of $6000. However, your lawyer does not "retain" this amount, as he or she never receives your back pay. Instead, if your fee agreement so provides, the Social Security Administration withholds the lawyer's fee from the back pay that is deposited in your bank account and sends only the fee to the lawyer.

Have you asked your lawyer why she took this action? Ordinarily, a lawyer would consult with her client first. She may feel that your case is not ready for a hearing because she only just became involved. I urge you to talk with her.
