Hoglund Lawyer Andrew Kinney, Esq., has just published a free “Client Legal Guide to Social Security Hearings.” Finally, a way to understand what to expect at a hearing from a Hoglund Lawyer who does 400-500 Social Security hearings a year!
This free 28-page client guide explains the entire hearing process, and shows you how your Hoglund Lawyer can help you get approved for Social Security benefits.
Andrew Kinney explained why he wrote the guide:
I wanted to help our clients understand what to expect at our hearings. There are federal judges and experts, and the process can be scary even with one of our Hoglund Lawyers there with you. We’ve found over the years that our clients benefit from knowing what’s going on at the hearings — especially when we are cross-examining experts or giving closing legal arguments.
An excerpt from page 26 of the free Hoglund Lawyer Guide:
Know that at your hearing, you are helping the judge understand your medical problems. Most people know how they feel day-to-day. Your attorney can describe the kinds of questions the judge may ask. The judge can read your medical records, but you are there in person to give your side of the story and make your situation ‘real’ for the judge.
