Attorneys, do you have clients with Social Security law questions you’re not sure how to answer? Are you keeping up with the rapidly-changing rulings regarding Social Security law? Do you have the knowledge to assure that your clients are getting all their available benefits?
These questions and more will be addressed at the January 29 “Complex Social Security Law Issues” video webcast seminar, at which St. Louis area attorney Donald Kohl will be one of the featured experts.
Don will speak on:
- Cross-Examination of the Vocational and Medical Expert (Effective Use of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles – Case Studies, Vocational Implications of Pain and Mental Health Issues, Building Scenarios to Challenge a Vocational Expert’s Opinion, What Makes a Skill “Highly Transferable?”)
- Intake Issues
- Avoiding Ethical Pitfalls (Client Misconduct, Representative Misconduct, Guarding Confidentiality, Addressing Negative Evidence).
Don’s extensive experience in Disability, Compensation, and Personal Injury has led to his demand as a speaker in these areas of the law. He has given a number of talks in Missouri, the review for which led to his invitation to be part of this national panel. Don earned his law degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He is a partner in the St. Charles, MO law firm of Shea, Kohl and Kuhl, LC and a member of the National Organization of Social Security Representatives and the National Association of Disability Representatives, as well as the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, the Missouri Bar, and the St. Charles County (MO) and Illinois State bar associations. He is a long-time prosecutor for the City of St. Charles (MO) and has been the municipal judge for the City of St. Peters (MO) since 1985.
Other featured experts for this National Business Institute webinar include Kysta Kennedy and Mark Manske, both social security attorneys from Wisconsin who graduated from Valparaiso University School of Law.
Attorneys participating in the all-day seminar can earn up to 7.2 CLE (continuing legal education) credits. More information and registration can be found at the seminar’s link: Complex Social Security Law Issues.
