An “ALJ” is an administrative law judge. An ALJ hearing is an evidentiary proceeding in which the ALJ takes witness testimony under oath and considers lawyer arguments. It allows the ALJ to get a better understanding of the case and make a better decision. It allows the ALJ to obtain information that may not be contained in the medical records.
