One important aspect of our encouragement is to present your humanity to the Administrative Law Judge. An ALJ, like any other human being, can become susceptible to cynicism after listening day after day to people complaining about their problems. It is your job as an advocate to try to dispel that cynicism by helping to create a communication bridge between your client and the ALJ. An adjudicator’s cynicism can be diluted through the power of straight, personal and sincere communication.

Before meeting with our clients for a pre-hearing consultation we carefully read through the entire social security file noting with particularity the following:
1. Date of Birth;
2. Date of Alleged Onset of Disability;
3. Earnings record and date last insured;
4. Dates of Application;
5. Dates of Initial Denials;
6. Past Relevant Work — which includes the details of the work including the number of hours sitting, standing and the amount of weight lifted.
7. The Claimant’s complaints and any witness’s responses to questions posed by DDS;
8. The DDS doctors’ reviews and assessments including examining and non-examining doctors;
9. Any other assessments by medical professionals;
10. Any opinions or comments by the claimant’s past co-workers, employers and/or vocational rehabilitation experts; and
11. The entire medical record noting when and where the record supports a finding that the claimant cannot work full-time.
With our first meeting with our clients for the pre-hearing consultation, we tell them that our meeting has two purposes. The first is that we will get to know them better beyond our chats on the phone and our read of their medical records. The second purpose of our meeting is to practice for the big event — the hearing.
