Remember, you get what you pay for!  I'm not sure what you mean by a "cheap" lawyer, but it sounds as if you want to "make a deal."  It is not necessary.

In Social Security Disability Insurance cases, there are no benefits paid for the first six (6) months after the disability began.  In SSI cases, there can be benefits in the first six (6) months: benefits are paid beginning the month after the Application is filed or the month after the disability began.

However, to your rescue comes the "contingent" fee.  Contingent means "only if" the lawyer wins your case is she or he entitled to an attorney fee.  SSA has very strict regulations on attorneys and fees, and caps the fee at 25% of past due benefits or $6,000 - whichever is less.  These payments are after you are approved for disability.

So don't sell yourself short.  Get an experienced Social Security Disability attorney in your area.  This link will connect you to all the Florida SSD lawyers.  You can refine the search to your city or town.  Be sure to have a written fee agreement, a clear understanding of exactly what the fee agreement means, and what the lawyer will do for you.  

Good luck!

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
