How much do The Advocates charge for their services?

Our motto at The Advocates is, ‘We don’t get paid unless you do.’ This means that if our attorneys are unable to obtain benefits for your claims, you won’t owe us a dime in attorney fees. At The Advocates, we treat every case as if it were our own. If you don’t get paid, then neither do we. That’s our commitment to you and your case.

Once we do win your case, you will owe us 25% of all past due benefits up to $6,000.
