The Lawyer’s Role

Murfreesboro disability lawyerMost of your Murfreesboro disability lawyer’s work will occur before your disability hearing ever begins. Before the hearing your lawyer will:

  • Gather medical evidence.
  • Obtain doctors’ reports.
  • Conduct legal and medical research.
  • Prepare you and your witnesses to testify.

Under the best circumstances, your Murfreesboro disability lawyer will not have to ask you very many questions at the hearing. Many judges like to ask the claimant questions. If the judge asks you a lot of questions, your lawyer will ask you questions only if it’s necessary to clarify or delve deeper into any particular issues. It’s usually advantageous for your case if the judge asks most of the questions. This way, you are more likely to present your case genuinely and your testimony will be more natural. The judge will learn about how your disability is affecting your life through a natural conversation. The judge will clearly observe that you’re the one testifying rather than your attorney.

The only time it’s necessary for your Murfreesboro disability lawyer to ask questions is if you bring witnesses to the hearing. Your lawyer will also question any expert witnesses the judge might call. In any event, your hearing will probably last just about an hour.
