Seminar / Workshop / Speech Program offerings:

  • Acquiring New Clients - This workshop teaches attorneys and representatives to identify and screen new clients.
  • The role of the Vocational Expert - The Vocational Expert is not an adversary in these proceedings. If examined properly, they can help to strengthen your client's claim for disability.
  • The Sequential Evaluation Process - This workshop focuses on steps #4 (can you perform any work you have done in the past?) and #5 (do your impairments prevent you from performing any other work which exists in significant numbers in the local or national economy?). If a hearing is scheduled, it generally means a decision could not be reached at step #3 (do you have any impairment(s) that meets or equals a listing?).
