11:00 am-5:00 pm Conference Registration

11:00 am-5:00 pm Exhibit Hall Open

1:00 pm-2:00 pm Workshops:  Choose one from the following:

A. Profitable Case Selection

Tracy Tyson Miller, Esq.
John Pennington, Esq.

Have you ever watched your winning case fall apart after the judge starts asking about unemployment?  Have you seen your fee go up in smoke when you find out your SSI only client "remembers" that she has a 401(k) and three cars? Choosing medically solid cases that are also technically sound will boost the profitability of your practice.  In this session, we will review the questions you need to ask your clients before you accept their case.

B. The Pre-Hearing Brief: Advancing Arguments for the Hearing Succinctly and Effectively

Mary T. Meadows, Esq.

The pre-hearing brief is an essential tool for effectively representing your client at the hearing. It allows you to address procedural issues (e.g. onset date, work activity post onset, earnings other than work) and present arguments in support of your client’s disability.  This program will help you develop a pre-hearing brief that: 1) hones in on the issues important to winning your client’s case, 2) addresses the facts and/or issues that detract from winning; and 3) uses a format that is readable, persuasive, and individualized to your adult or child client.

C. Benefits Gumbo

Kevin Liebkemann, Esq.

Unemployment, welfare, veterans, and workers’ compensation benefits can affect your clients’ SSI and SSDI claims.  Like recipe ingredients, some types of claims mix well together and some do not.  Come to this session to improve your understanding of how these benefits can interact so you can help maximize your clients’ recoveries.

Sarah Bohr, Esq

SSA has substantially revised its regulations addressing medical source evidence and abolished the treating physician rule for all new claims filed on or after March 27, 2017.  This session will highlight these changes and include suggestions for potential arguments to make to the ALJ and the Appeals Council based on these recent regulatory changes.

C. Federal Court Overview: Basics from the Appeals Council Notice to Fees

Heather Freeman, Esq.

Structured for the practitioner who does not frequently represent plaintiffs in federal court, this program provides a basic overview for representatives who would like to help their clients consider civil actions, represent claimants in post-federal court remand cases, or are thinking about handling federal court cases.

Several states have made succession planning mandatory, and attorneys must report that they have a plan in place in the event of disability or death of the attorney.  Some malpractice insurance companies require this as well.  This session will lay out what succession planning looks like, and a number of different scenarios that are applicable.  This session is primarily directed at the solo or small firm.  Once you have an attorney ready to take over the firm in the worst case scenario, we will discuss how to best prepare your staff to help make that transition most efficient for the other attorney, and, most importantly, for your clients.

C. Don’t Be Roadkill! How to Avoid Getting Run over by an ALJ, Expert or Your Own Client

Scott Smith, Esq.

Many times there are ALJs who will try to prevent attorneys from asking questions to clients or experts.  The situation becomes tense causing the attorney to shy away. This causes a problem with proper presentation and conducting a full hearing.  We will discuss strategies to combat this issue with the ALJ, the experts, or even clients who are demanding and insist on things that may hurt the case.

12:00 noon-1:30 pm Lunch (on your own)

1:30 pm-3:00 pm Workshops:  Choose one from the following:

C.  ERIC C. CONN 2.0. A New Call For Volunteers

Ann Atkinson, Esq.
John Goss, Esq.
Robert Johns, Esq.
Evan Smith, Esq.

SSA has recently begun issuing the first set of what are estimated to be 2,000 new redetermination notices in cases involving master fraudster Eric C. Conn, the Kentucky Attorney recently convicted of bribing an administrative law judge in the Huntington ODAR from 2007-2010. It appears that the scope of the redeterminations may be expanding to every case Conn presented to all ALJs during that period. Thanks in great part to the pro bono services of NOSSCR attorneys, around half of those originally redetermined, were able to retain benefits despite daunting obstacles SSA has placed in the way of these poor souls caught up in the Conn mess. This round table discussion will review for new volunteers how Kentucky legal aid organizations can partner with volunteers; how the 3-way video hearing process operates that allows attorneys to appear in these cases at their local OHO; how you can participate in the mentor program that pairs NOSSCR attorneys with Kentucky volunteers; and the current status of federal court appeals challenging SSA’s redetermination process. Please consider participating in NOSSCR’s pro bono effort.

3:00 pm-3:15 pm Coffee with the Exhibitors

3:15 pm-4:45 pm Workshops:  Choose one from the following:

B. The 5-Day Rule Revisited: Mock Hearing and View from the BenchETHICS

Douglas Mohney, Esq.
Michael Sexton, Esq.

A brief mock hearing dealing solely with the 5-day rule will be presented with ALJ Barry LaBoda of Orlando, Florida. ALJ LaBoda will then express his views from the bench and OHO’s position and preferences. The last 15 minutes of the session will be devoted to Q & A.

C. Social Security Vocational Experts, Are they the “Untouchables?”

Mike Blankenship, Vocational Expert
Michelle McBrown Weiss, Vocational Expert

Vocational Expert testimony education, training and experience is essential to effective and accurate testimony.  Come and learn why vocational expert testimony is a vital building block upon which the SSA disability adjudication system is built. When the validity of that testimony is compromised, the “entire system becomes unstable.”

A. Know Your Client: Getting the Most from the Hearing Testimony

Cody Marvin, Esq.

After years of waiting, your client finally gets a window of about an hour to explain to an ALJ why he or she qualifies for disability benefits. This session will discuss ways to take advantage of this opportunity for your client to present useful and effective evidence. From the initial interview, the representative must begin preparing the client for the eventual hearing testimony, and must also think of ways to frame and edit the client's experience so the testimony will be relevant, productive, and convincing. The representative should be aiming for a favorable decision from the ALJ, but should also elicit testimony that will be useful, and possibly even necessary, to win an appeal to the Appeals Council or the District Court.

James Auffant, Esq.

This program is created to train representatives about their obligations under SSR17-4p, including how to obtain medical records, how to prevent complications under this Ruling, and how to deal with problems that arise.

C. Is your Client Being Framed?  Framing the Framework of the Grids and Other Occupational Base Arguments

Bruce Billman, Esq.

ALJs are not asking the right questions in order to use the "Framework of the Grid Regulations".  The vast majority of these denials are improper and can easily be overcome.  Learn these powerful tools to properly examine the vocational expert and establish your client's entitlement under Social Security Rulings 83-12 and 83-14.

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm Workshops: Choose one from the following:

A. Sedentary Unskilled Jobs: Believe it or not!

Jeffrey A. Truthan, MS
Daniel A. Wolstein, Ph.D.

The purpose of this session is to report on ongoing research to systematically and scientifically determine whether any of the 137 sedentary unskilled occupations in the DOT still actually exist in significant numbers in the national economy.  The first phase of the research is a national survey of existing vocational and rehabilitation experts to solicit their opinions of the continued existence of each of these 137 occupations and the likely NAICS industries in which they may exist. Phase two examines multiple sources of existing government data to consider long term economic changes and current labor market conditions in the relevant industries. The final phase is actual labor market surveys using a national, stratified random sample of employers in the industries of the remaining occupations (refined from the two preceding phases) that are expected to exist.  A standardized questionnaire will be used to ascertain if the remaining jobs and duties, as originally classified by the DOT, still apply to the remaining sedentary and unskilled occupations.

B. Does Your Client’s Speech and Language Impairment Meet or Equal a Listing

Josephine Gerrard, Esq.

This session will cover how to identify and document speech and language deficits to support SSA’s definition of disability, how to obtain medical records and testing from school records, and how to work with professionals to obtain a proper evaluation.

It will also lay out the top reasons for remands and give attendees examples of short and fast AC brief arguments that work. 

B. The Earnings Record

Evan Zagoria, Esq.

The earning record is the single most important document in every file. Understanding the earnings record will help you decide if the case is Title II or XVI, what a date last insured is, the amount of potential past-due benefits, and other program criteria.

C. Getting a Word in Edgewise: The Art of Constructing Effective, Direct Examinations in the Age of ALJs Who Eat Up the Clock

John Goss, Esq.

Direct examination is the most important aspect of almost any trial, yet it is often the orphan child of case preparation.  Many ALJs take an active and often aggressive approach to control the hearing so representatives cannot rely solely on claimant testimony questionnaires. This session will explore what evidence a representative needs to (and doesn’t need to) elicit on direct examination to make a better record for both administrative and appellate levels. The session will offer some research tools for creating effective lines of questioning; some methods of securing effective testimony when encountering different ALJ styles; thoughts on preparing your client for direct and cross examination; and strategies for making the most of the time you’re given to present your case.
