How to Prepare Yourself for the Zoom Hearing

Colorado Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Hearings are conducted a bit differently when they’re virtual. 

Know how to present yourself during your Zoom hearing?

What can you expect?

The hearing probably won’t start on time, and you might be in a virtual waiting room when you join. Once the judge calls your case, all attendees will appear on your screen. You should be aware that members of the public can watch a livestream of most hearings, so you want to make sure your background isn’t distracting.

Even if you’re attending the hearing from home, you should treat the hearing as seriously as if you were at the courthouse. It’s important to make a good impression when you’re in court. Here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Dress like you’re going to a job interview. 
  • Sit in front of a solid neutral background, if possible. 
  • Mute yourself when you’re not speaking to avoid background noise.
  • Use a headset or headphones with a built-in microphone 
  • Make sure you have all paperwork you might need to consult during the hearing in front of you
  • If you’re using a phone or tablet, try to prop it up securely.

Judges have also reported seeing some of the following things in remote hearings, so as a reminder:

  • Do not attend a remote hearing from your bed, a moving vehicle, or any other location that a judge might find questionable. 
  • Do not drink alcohol or smoke during your remote hearing.
  • If you live with someone else, make sure they know that you have an important court date so they can avoid walking through the background of your video.
  • Make sure someone is available to take care of your pets and children during the hearing.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

- Jeff (2015)

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
