This link can be helpful concerning attorneys and fees paid before the Social Security Administration (SSA).

In cases that I handle, the fee is paid directly to me by SSA after a favorable result.  Certain elements are required including, among other things, a fee agreement.  That direct payment is the result of a number of factors, one of which is approval of the agreement as meeting the SSA standards. 

Anytime an attorney represents you, insist on a fee agreement.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

In Social Security cases, there are limits on what attorneys may charge before the case is decided.  The SSA generally reviews the attorney's charges and has to approve the payment.

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.
