Your Ocala Social Security Disability Attorney Discusses Preparing Witnesses

  • Published: August 8, 2013

If you have witnesses who will testify on your behalf at your disability hearing, it is important that they speak with your Ocala Social Security disability attorney ahead of time. Witnesses should be prepared to testify effectively without being rehearsed.

Preparing Your Witnesses

Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney will use the meeting with potential witnesses to decide who is best suited for your hearing. It is important that witnesses understand that the judge is not interested in testimony that has been rehearsed ahead of time. Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney will be sure that your witnesses know what to expect at your hearing and how to testify effectively.

Effective Testimony

Your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer will explain to your witnesses how they can give effective testimony by not going overboard with minute and unnecessary details. An effective witness will describe what he or she has observed about your impairment and its limitations on your life without drawing conclusions as to whether you are considered disabled.

While it may seem that any witness who can testify on your behalf would be helpful, you can see that this is not always the case. You want witnesses who have knowledge of your impairment and can testify effectively as to how they have seen the impairment affect you.
