I my self went through something of the sorts if you asked you lawyer a "letter of release", which I received before moving to IN so when I got the letter it released my lawyer of any entitlements that I may have received from SSA if awarded. Now your lawyer has to justify his cost if you are awarded SSA at ALJ hearing or if granted SSA, mine its self was $5000 and I had a hearing and everything. If you didn't receive a "letter of release" you may have to go through SSD to enplane he was released and they in turn will ask for his paper work and billings and work performed on your case so that he/she is paid accordingly and the $5,000 is justfied. But I would contact your lawyer first and notify them of the SSA error,"BE NICE" that either you can handle it with them (they may keep some $$ fee's for work rendered) or they can send it back to SSA and you can deal with SSA directly. I can't see them keeping it if you or they did not attend an ALJ hearing with you..
