What Will It Cost? Can I Afford A Lawyer?
If you are disabled due to an injury or illness and can’t work — you should know that you can afford a lawyer, and that your chances of winning an SSD or SSI claim improve significantly if you have legal counsel.
At Midwest Disability, we understand that the cost of hiring a lawyer to represent you in a Social Security Disability case may seem like a luxury that you cannot afford. We’re here to tell you that you can afford one. We take cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning that unless and until we win your case — you won’t have to pay our firm a dime in legal fees.

How Much Does An SSD Lawyer Cost?
By law, our fees for any SSD or SSI claim are limited to 25 percent of the “back benefits” owed to you by the Social Security Administration (SSA), or $6,000 dollars… whichever is less. In addition, our fees and costs must be submitted to the SSA for approval before we can charge you anything.
Can you save on this cost by hiring a non-lawyer advocate instead of an actual lawyer? No, because advocates are allowed to charge you the exactly the same amount of money.
We can explain how this works in more detail at an initial consultation, and if you decide to become a client of Midwest Disability — we will provide you with a written fee agreement outlining the costs. We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have at that time.
