Advanced Strategies Used by Lawyers at Disability Hearings

How old are you?

There is an art to representing a disabled client in front of an administrative law judge at a Social Security disability hearing. Most hearing strategies center around proving you have such reduced functional capacity that you can't do your prior job or any other job. But the devil is in the details. Disability lawyers know how to cross-examine the government's vocational experts and gently challenge their testimony about suitable "other work" you can do. In addition, they know which facts judges and expert witnesses can rely on and which they can't, and they are ready to call attention to evidence that can't be used (such as poorly researched job numbers or jobs you did more than 15 years ago). Here are some articles on the more common strategies used by Social Security disability attorneys today.
