Yes - if that disability benefits is taxable income.

If however - disability benefits are not taxable in your case - legal fees would not be deductible.

If benefits or settlement is partially taxable - legal fees are apportioned and only the part attributable to taxable income may be deducted.

Let me know if you need any help to evaluate your specific circumstances..
