Where does the Rollins Law Office take Social Security cases?

Are Social Security cases always contingency fee?
Yes. They are always contingent on us winning for you. Our fee agreement is pursuant to a federal statute and regulation that determines that attorneys receive 25% of the back pay, if any, up to a maximum of $6,000.00.
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is where the client pays nothing up front. The attorney only takes a fee when the client wins and is awarded their back pay by the Social Security Administration. If the claim is unsuccessful, we do not take a fee of any kind.
Do you help with the initial application?
Yes. In fact, we prefer to do the application for you so that we can ensure that everything is correct and to give you as great an advantage as possible.
What documents do I need to bring to my initial meeting?
Everything you can! Please bring any medical records, any denial letters, your initial application, and any other relevant document. If there is any question about whether you should bring it, bring it! Also you can ask us what to bring specifically when you make your initial appointment by Contacting Us.
How long does my Social Security case take before a final decision?
Although every case is different, it is typically for your case to be resolved after two denials at a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. The first denial typically happens quickly after three to six months. The second denial can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. It can then take three to twelve months to have your hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. At any point during any part of the process you have a chance to be approved depending on your particular situation. There are two other appellate levels of review that we can discuss at your initial meeting with us.
What forms of payment do you accept for Social Security cases?
If we win, the Federal Government pays us directly, you won’t have to worry about paying us at all.
