TIM WILBORN, Attorney at Law - OSB # 944644, WILBORN LAW OFFICE, P.C., Las Vegas, NV, Attorney for Plaintiff.
THOMAS M. COFFIN, Magistrate Judge.
Attorneys' fees in the amount of $34, 894.05 are hereby awarded to Plaintiff's attorney pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). The court finds this is a reasonable fee. Previously, this court awarded $7, 499.99, pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), 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 Plaintiffs attorney at his current address shown above the balance of $27, 394.06, 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.
