I was extremely impressed with Mark Dean's work through each phase and progression of my SSDI case. Mark and I met at his satellite office in Edwardsville, IL. His meeting availability, legal knowledge, engaging/dynamic work ethic, and overall easygoing attitude/demeanor accented each meeting. With his strong written/computer documented support and superior ethics within SSDI law, my case progressed to a positive outcome. I would highly recommend him for SSDI cases.Mar 29, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?If you have suffered a personal injury or a loved one has died, you have been injured once. We believe in picking our cases carefully to try and ensure profitability for the Firm and for the client. We do not want the client to be injured by his or her own attorney, who charges a high contingency fee. Therefore, we normally only deduct a 29% contingency fee (assuming a successful outcome) on personal injury/wrongful death cases. We sometimes contract for higher or lower contingency fees, depending on the complexity of the case and risk. Costs and expenses are separate and deducted upon successful completion of the case. We normally do not charge for costs and expenses if there is unfavorable outcome. Workers Compensation. The maximum amount that can be charged in Missouri Workers Compensation cases is 25%. We often, though not always, charge only 22%. The maximum amount that can be charged in Illinois Workers Compensation cases is 20%. We often, though not always, charge only 17%. Costs and expenses are separate and deducted upon successful completion of the case. We normally do not charge for costs and expenses if there is unfavorable outcome. Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income. We charge the standard 25% of past due benefits, or $6000 (whichever is less). We normally do not charge for costs and expenses in these cases.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. 15 Hours Minimum of Continuing Legal Education is required. Attorneys attend or speak at seminars on various aspects of law to earn yearly credit. I have been a sponsored speaker at such events.
