Drafting Winning Case Outlines
Prior to every formal hearing, I always provide board members with an overview of our case that outlines our goals and discusses the evidence supporting our contentions. For every condition that you seek to have found unfitting at a formal hearing, it is necessary for us to provide board members with a clear, cogent analysis that ties together the medical and nonmedical evidence that proves our contentions. This evidence should be attached as enclosures so that it will be easy for board members to agree with us. After all, why should we force them to rummage back through hundreds or thousands of pages of medical records as opposed to simply providing them with what they need to say “yes” to us?
