“Where is it written that attorneys that represent poor people should be paid less than attorneys that represent rich people?” or
“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?”
We will explore the history of attorneys’ fees under the Social Security Act and the process to be followed today to assure that fees are paid under either the fee petition process or the fee agreement process. We will look at choices regarding fees in continuance or overpayment cases. We will also address problem areas in payments to multiple representatives in a firm and what happens if a representative leaves the firm. There will also be a short discussion of tax issues raised by issuance of erroneous or confusing 1099-Misc forms by the Social Security Administration.
