MARCO A. HERNANDEZ, District Judge.
Plaintiff Lloyd Cook brought this action seeking review of the Commissioner's final decision to deny disability insurance benefits and supplemental security income. In a September 2, 2014 Opinion & Order, Judge Redden reversed the Commissioner's decision and ordered that the case be remanded for further proceedings.
Upon remand, Plaintiff eventually obtained a favorable decision from an ALJ on March 25, 2016. Pl.'s Mot. for Fees, Ex. 5, ECF 30-5. Plaintiff now seeks an award of fees pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). Defendant has no objection to the request. I have reviewed the record in the case, the motion, and the supporting materials including the award of benefits, the fee agreement with counsel, and the recitation of counsel's hours and services. Applying the standards set by
I grant the motion  and award Plaintiff's counsel $20,191 in attorney's fees under 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). Previously, Judge Redden awarded Plaintiff attorney's fees in the amount of $3,735.87 under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), 28 U.S.C. § 2412. ECF 23. When issuing the § 406(b) check for payment to Plaintiff's attorney, the Commissioner is directed to subtract the amount previously awarded under EAJA and send Plaintiff's attorney the balance of $16,455.13, less any applicable processing fees as allowed by statute. Any amount withheld after all administrative and court attorney's fees are paid should be released to the claimant.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
