This Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Gorenstein's thorough and well-reasoned Report and Recommendation, and finds that it is not erroneou s on its face. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). Accordingly, this Court adopts the Report and Recommendation in its entirety.

Nieves' motion for approval of the contingent fee agreement is granted. The Social Security Administration is directed to approve a fees award of $41,878.00 out of the past due Soci al Security benefits payable to Nieves and her daughter, less the $7,200.00 already paid to Bowes under the Equal Access to Justice Act, for a net payment of $34,678.00.
