Be Prepared


It is crucial to be prepared for your hearing... 
 
If you make an appointment with Diagnostic Assessment Center for your evaluation, you can be assured that you will feel thoroughly prepared to present your case to your designated Hearing Officer. 
 
It is extremly important that you know the philosophy of the person or agency that you choose to prepare you for your appeal.  Make sure they are knowledgeable in all areas of the appeal process.  Do not make an appointment with anyone who cannot thoroughly answer all your questions.  And most of all do not hire anyone because they offer you a great deal.  Remember, you get what you pay for.  Keep in mind that if you are not properly prepared you will have to wait for one year before you can begin a new appeal.
  
The evaluation process is much more than just getting your DLAD-66 form completed.  It a thorough process which includes a urinalysis screeing, the proper and precise way to have your written testimonials completed, instruction on how to answer and respond to the questions you may be asked at your hearing, the completion of the eight page request for a hearing form and other areas of presentation related to medical circumstances, which many assessment providers do not include in their services.  
 
A good evaluation will take more than one appointment.  You cannot possibly prepare one for a successful hearing without being
comfortable about your presentation. 
 
Please feel free to consult with us regarding your personal situation.  And remember, it is not always necessary to retain legal counsel for your appeal.  The Hearing Officer will always direct questions to you.  An attorney may be necessary for extenuating circumstances, which can be discussed, but it is always your personal choice to take legal counsel if you choose.   
 
Below you will find forms and information necessary for your appeal. 
 
Looking forward to hearing from you...
