Cross Examination of Medical Experts in Social Security Disability Hearings

Event Description

January's CLE Program. Please note the CLE timeframe from 12 Noon to 1:30 PM for 1.5 CLE Credits. Registration and check-in begins after 11:45 am. Lunch is provided!


Many attorneys practicing in the area of Social Security Disability would agree that cross examination of Medical Experts (MEs) in disability hearings is one of the more challenging aspects of our practice. Four attorneys practicing in the Social Security Disability area will present their approaches to cross examination of MEs in a panel discussion covering topics such as basic questions to ask most MEs, questions not to ask, and approaches that have succeeded in limiting damaging testimony, creating appealable issues, or even winning the case.

Stephanie Christel | Livgard & Lloyd PLLP.
James Greeman | Greeman Toomey PLLC
Ethel Schaen | Solo Practitioner
F. Anthony Mannella | Midwest Disability, P.A.
