WILBORN LAW OFFICE, P.C., TIM WILBORN, Attomey at Law - OSB # 944644, Las Vegas, NV, Attorney for Plaintiff.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Attomey fees in the amount of $18, 681.00 are here by awarded to Plaintiffs attorney pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). The court finds this is a reasonable fee. Previously, this court awarded $5, 312.01, pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (BAJA), 28 U.S.C. § 2412. When issuing the § 406(b) check, the agency is directed to subtract the amount previously awarded under the EAJA, and to send to Plaintiff's attarney at his current address shown above the balance of $13, 368.99, minus any user fee. Any amount withheld (including the EAJA fee offset) after all administrative and court attorneys fees are paid should be released to the claimant.
