What Your New York Disability Lawyer Does at Your Hearing

At a hearing, during the time in which you testify, the more information that you are able to provide, the better the judge will get to know you and your situation. In addition, it lends credibility to a case when you speak and present yourself naturally. The Judge will probably ask a number of questions. Your  New York disability lawyer will  ask questions if he or she thinks that you need to speak further, to clarify,  elaborate upon  something, , or to satisfy the Judge’s concerns.

In  the case of witnesses, your New York disability attorney will likely be questioning  more. Your New York disability attorney will question both the witnesses that you have brought and any expert witnesses that have been called by the judge. In addition, he or she may make a written or spoken closing argument, although  a well-developed case often precludes the need for a closing argument. Your New York disability  attorney may also file post-hearing briefs.

You and  your New York disability attorney will  do a good deal f collaborative preparation before the hearing. An important part of your  New York disability attorney’s job is to build your case before the hearing  through legal and medical research,    through preparation of  you and your witnesses to testify, and through the  gathering and presentation of  medical records.
