By law of the United States Congress and personal Christian mission, Cooke & Company, Inc. firmly adheres to five iron-clad rules.

 

#1  If Cooke & Company, Inc. does not win your case, we do not get paid. Period!

By law, Social Security disability cases are contingent fee only. That means representatives must win the case to receive fee compensation.

 

#2  Social Security disability representative fees are based on the Maximum Cap.

By law, disability representative’s fees are currently set at 25% of all retroactive benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. That means the Maximum Cap is $6,000. And that means that Cooke & Company, Inc. will never be awarded a representation fee over the Maximum Cap, no matter how much financial benefit we win for a client.

 

#3  Disability Fee Agreements protect disabled claimants by law.

Disability representative’s Fee Agreements with claimants are legally-binding contracts that must be approved by the Administrative Law Judge who decides the case. Then the Social Security Administration alone decides the amount of the representative’s fee. Cooke & Company, Inc. is not involved in the fee calculation in any way. Additionally, unlike many representatives, Cooke & Company, Inc. adheres to Colorado’s three-day Right of Rescission law. That means Cooke & Company, Inc. clients have three days after signing with us to change their minds.

 

#4  If Cooke & Company, Inc. does not win a case, we do not charge client case expenses.

Cooke & Company, Inc. firmly adheres to Christian business principles and practices. Thus, if we do not win a case, we do not charge clients for case expenses. This is done in recognition that most of our clients live in near poverty, and thus cannot afford to repay case expenses if we do not win their disability case. Thus, in the Christian spirit, we legally forgive those case expenses in forma pauperis.

 

#5  Of course, when we win, we do request reimbursement of all reasonable case expenses.

These case expenses can include medical record and report fees, certified mail, long distance telephone calls, and travel expenses, if applicable. Case expenses average approximately $150 for local Denver cases, and up to $800 for out-of state cases, and we provide our clients with photocopies of every case expense receipt. In some situations, the Social Security Administration will reimburse us for travel expenses.

 

In short, with a contingent, capped and rescission-protected representation fee, and reasonable case expenses only repaid if we win, Cooke & Company, Inc. fully protects our clients’ rights.
