Preparing For A Disability Hearing

Helping Clients Prepare For A Social Security Disability Hearing

Age is an important factor in Social Security Disability claims. If you are under the age of 50, the chances are that you will have to go to a disability hearing and present your case before an administrative law judge.


Many times, individuals are unprepared for this hearing. They do not know what to expect, what to say or how to present the evidence on their own behalf, nor do they realize that the court’s doctors and vocational experts will likely challenge their claim.

At Florida Disability Advocates, we are dedicated to making sure you are fully informed and prepared for any Social Security Disability hearing that may be necessary. Our Social Security claims attorney, Chad Lawrence, has 25 years of experience and is well versed in helping individuals pursue favorable decisions from the Social Security Administration. He can represent you in every step of the hearings and appeals process.

Medical Evidence And Preparation Is The Foundation of Success

Even if you know that you cannot work due to your disability, you must have the medical evidence to back up your claim. Without proper evidence presented in a clear and timely manner, your disability benefits claim can easily be denied.

Our lawyer will carefully gather and analyze all the medical evidence in your favor, including:

  • Hospital treatment records
  • Physicians’ reports
  • Psychiatrists’ and psychologists’ reports
  • Other medical records or documentation

In addition to preparing the evidence on your behalf and presenting it to the judge, Mr. Lawrence can cross-examine the vocational experts who may be opposing your claim. He can also review with you the types of hypothetical scenarios the judge may pose or questions that he or she may ask. Our goal is to make sure you feel confident and that your claim receives the full consideration it deserves.
