Hostetler Fontaine and Associates prides itself as educators in the field of vocational rehabilitation and evaluation. Our counselors and forensic rehabilitation consultants have extensive work experience evaluating vocational issues associated with complex disability claims. We are skilled in conducting independent vocational evaluations when an objective opinion when an individual’s ability to work has been called into question.
We have highly qualified case managers who understand the law and know how to ask the right questions. We employ a tested methodology that allow us to objectively evaluate rehabilitation potential, wage earning capacity, and present employability by focusing on the facts of case, not subjective or non-contributory characteristics.
HFA counselors and consultants are trained in interpreting labor data and occupational employment statistics, conducting transferable skills analyses, and developing skills profiles of injured workers. We understand that evaluating vocational capacity is not a hard science, that work experience, education, and professional training is required. Our diverse staff of professionals have both academic and professional experience in human resources, vocational rehabilitation, medical case management, and disability management.
