On October 19, attorneys Steve Troutman and Gayle Troutman had the opportunity to work with and instruct other Social Security lawyers in a national legal conference of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) in Seattle, Washington. The NOSSCR is a legal association comprised of over 4,000 attorneys and legal advocates who work with people on Social Security and Supplemental Security claims.
Troutman and Troutman held a workshop entitled “Tenth Circuit Practice,” which focused on the realities of representing clients in their efforts to gain disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). The attorneys argued that anyone working with disabled people seeking benefits need to be abreast of the latest developments in Social Security law, as well as landmark cases and how they affect individuals in the future.
Troutman and Troutman believe that participation in an organization such as NOSSCR is essential for attorneys and others in the legal profession in order to be helpful, strong advocates for their clients. The attorneys were honored to speak with other lawyers and share insights and experiences that will help them all in their practice. This four-day conference, held every year, featured many other panels, workshops and lectures ranging from information for attorneys just entering the practice to representing clients with complicated claims such as mental and psychological disorders.
