People often ask us at Drummond Disability how they should dress for their hearing in front of an administrative law judge. The short answer is to appear neat and clean without over dressing or attempting to make a statement. Body art or other ornamentation should be kept to a minimum or removed altogether. It is usually a good idea to wear clothing that conceals tattoos and remove all body piercings. Likewise obvious displays of jewelry is discouraged. Avoid wearing shirts or hats containing messages of any kind. Likewise emblems of any kind should be avoided such as motorcycles, crosses, product logos, messages or sayings or clothing that is revealing or representative of a racial, religious or ethnic identification.
