"How much ? How Hard ? How Long ?" Those are the three best questions clients and their family members ask Herndon Reston area disability lawyer Doug Landau. For the first question, there is good news! For those clients who have been disabled as the result of a spine injury, disease, head trauma, car crash and even an animal attack, and are seeking Social Security before reaching retirement age, Doug Landau's fees are CONTINGENT. This means that if he is not successful, you do not pay for his time and efforts. Furthermore, this CONTINGENT fee is CAPPED at no more than $6,000 for 2012 ! In short, the fees in such disability cases are CONTINGENT, CAPPED AND must be approved by the Federal Government before you pay anything. And, Herndon Virginia Social Security and accident lawyer Landau has never charged a fee for the additional benefits and payments his clients' children get under the Federal Disability law. In a recent case for a Reston Virginia client, the Federal Government's "Office of Central Operations" at the Baltimore Maryland Social Security Disability Insurance office wrote:
"We have approved the fee agreement between you and your representative. Your past due benefits are $46,310.90 for February 2009 through February 2012. Under the fee agreement, the representative cannot charge you more than $6,000.00 for his or her work. The amount of the fee does not include any out-of-pocket expenses (for example, costs to get copies of doctors' or hospitals' reports).
If Mr. Landau was to get the full 25%, it would amount to $11,577.725. In effect, the client is getting Mr. Landau's experience, winning record and staff for about half price ! Given this client's young age, she may receive another 20 years of monthly income loss payments, as well as medical and other Federal disability benefits. For $6,000, this may be one of the very best bargains around !
