I have been asked to present a workshop at the Spring Conference of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR) in Philadelphia. The conference takes place from May 2-5. My workshop is titled: 

Tips for Writing Effective Hearing Briefs for the ALJ

Here is the workshop description:

Win more cases at the hearing level by writing a pre-hearing memorandum for the ALJ.  This presentation will persuade you to submit a brief in advance of every hearing, and will offer useful tips for writing a more effective memorandum.

I have written extensively on this blog about the importance of ALJ hearing briefs, and spoke on the same topic at the Fall 2010 NOSSCR conference in Chicago. The presentation for the Philadephia conference will provide updated materials and a new set of sample hearing briefs.

If you will be at the Spring NOSSCR conference, my presentation will be Friday morning at 8:30 AM. Please attend! It will be worthwhile, and you will win more cases by writing an effective hearing memorandum for the administrative law judge.

I am honored to present at the conference. If you are attending, please say hello to me. I would like to meet you.
