Representing clients seeking claims under social security and disability laws has recently become one of the most popular and steady practice areas across the country. Social security programs are a significant source of cash and health benefits for individuals with disabilities. However, the procedures and formalities of a large federal agency can be intimidating for an unrepresented claimant. From the underlying substantive law to practical aspects of social security and disability law, this seminar will cover benefits, appeals, grievances, preparing for the hearing, prepping your client, and inherent delays. In addition, our nationally recognized faculty will discuss crafting a prima facie case of disability under the Social Security Act, what must be shown, ideal evidence to show it, and how both the lawyer and client can generate the best possible proof. Register today for this convenient, 24/7 on-demand seminar.
