    very informal.
    the attys set out the issues- what's agreed and what's in dispute.
    settlement discussions are initiated. if necessary you can discuss with your atty.
    no testimony is taken and no court decisions are made.

    The purpose is to permit the parties to discuss the claim informally with an ALJ. The ALJ will try to have the parties agree on documents and reports which may be introduced at a hearing and to reduce the number of issues that are in dispute. As the issues are reduced, it is often possible for the parties to come to an agreement that will eliminate the need for a hearing.
