Social Security Disability: Attorney Fees in Federal Court

In Pittman v. Colvin, 2013 U.S. Dist. Lexis 79854 (M.D.Tenn. June 5, 2013), the plaintiff obtained a remand at federal court. On remand, the ALJ awarded benefits.  The Plaintiff’s attorney then filed a Motion for Attorney fees in the District Court ,seeking an award of approximately $13,500, which was 25% of the past due benefits. The Court awarded the fees requested, noting that despite the high hourly rate, the amount was reasonable.  The prior award of EAJA fees was ordered to be refunded to the Plaintiff by the attorney.
