Listen as attorney Patrick Hartwig explains three things the Social Security Judge will want from you or your attorney at your hearing.
First, it is important that there should be no surprise information. All medical evidence should be submitted in a timely fashion, and this is typically one week before your hearing. The judge will not like new medical evidence provided on the day of the hearing.
Second, you should be on time. We typically have our clients arrive an entire hour before the hearing, which allows us to review the details of the case and prepare for discussing the claim in detail with the judge. We will go over the types of questions to expect.
Third, be completely honest and respectful. Your hearing is your chance to tell your side of the story in an open and complete manner. You will present the details of your experience over the past few years, explaining the reality of your disability in a way that medical records cannot. Watch the video to learn more.
