“What is the percentage? A disability lawyer or non attorney representative can receive 25 percent of a claimant's total backpay from ssd and ssi. However, this is capped at a maximum amount. As of 2007, the maximum fee that a representative, lawyer or non lawyer, can receive in compensation for their services, is $5300.00”
Since most cases will involve over a year in back pay, it really isn't a very high max, IMHO.

The max has been $6K for a couple of years now. Not bad for completing two very simple forms.
