Are You Worried About How Much an Attorney Will Cost?

Many people hesitate to contact an attorney because they are worried about the cost. In reality, there is no need to hesitate, because we are only paid if Social Security benefits are awarded. When that happens, our fees are limited by statute to a percentage of past due benefits only. These fees must first be approved by the appropriate administrative authority. These fees do not include any portion of your future benefits, which belong solely to you.

Since there is no financial risk or no additional cost for contacting our Marion attorneys as early as possible, we encourage you to talk to us about your claim today. Consultations are free. You can reach us toll free from anywhere in Indiana at or contact our SSD law firm online.
