Best Lawyers In Florida For Disability?

I was involved in an automobile accident and as a result my right hand has been paralyzed, I can’t type with it or even lift my arm for that matter. I am currently on social security disability and have applied to the Florida Bar for representation by a “lawyer with disabilities”. After reviewing the application and speaking with one of their lawyers they told me he would need $1,000 up front to start out. Then if we were successful at getting money from Social Security then his retainer fee would be $200 per hour.

While everyone is entitled to representation by good counsel, shouldn’t there be some kind of reasonable cost-benefit analysis? It seems like this kind of attitude towards disabled people who are trying to get legal help makes us feel less than human….
