We are listing ten top reasons to write a hearing brief. Look for a reason a day through the 10th of July.
Reason #7 Differentiate Your Claim
ALJs hear a lot of claims – several hundred a year. I am always concerned about my case getting lost in shuffle. A hearing memorandum provides an opportunity to differentiate your claim. There is something unique about your claimant's story. Maybe there is an outstanding prior work record, or the claimant heroically tried to go back to work after onset, or the claimant's injury occurred during military service. Be sure to tell the judge about it in your hearing memorandum.
