Do you represent clients applying for Social Security disability benefits? Have you ever wondered how your preparation of a claim at one level of the process impacts the adjudication of the claim at the next level? Have you ever thought about how the questions you ask of the claimant and vocational expert at a hearing may impact the development of the claim at the Appeals Council and federal court levels? For many disability attorneys, the answer to these questions may be “no.” In the age of specialization, it is common for attorneys to handle certain aspects of a disability claim but not the entire claim. The unintended consequence of this specialization is the lack of a cohesive case strategy throughout the life of the claim. This seminar examines how to develop a consistent claim from initial application through federal court, paying particular attention to the interconnection of vocational factors from one stage to the next. The development of a cohesive case strategy throughout the life of the claim or between the hearing and Appeals Council attorney and the federal court attorney may be the difference between your client being approved or denied for benefits.
