A: Sure, but they dont have to ask them. There are plenty of reasons you want to ask those questions but there may be good reasons not to ask them. If you hired an attorney you trusted them to get you a result. Presumably they have litigated more of these hearings than you have. If you dont trust their judgment perhaps you should reconsider the hire. Or, at the very least discuss them the strategy you want them to employ and why, and then listen to their responses.
