This is why it is critical that a claimant understand how to answer certain types of questions from an ALJ including questions about the medical history, such as when a specific set of symptoms occurred and how long the symptoms lasted. Here at Law Office of James D. Howes, PLLC we make it our business to keep our clients informed and prepared for anything the judge throws at them. We spend hours before the hearing with each client making sure they understand the medical record and all the issues surrounding their claim. Sometimes all it takes is one wrong answer to get denied by an ALJ. We will make sure you are prepared with the knowledge you need to help us help you win a disability award. 

​​The majority of all Social Security cases for disability end up before an ALJ who determines the case. The ALJ will question a claimant about his or her medical history, daily activities, symptoms and the associated limitations, work history, and anything else the judge deems necessary.
