Two options:

1. Use Ragged Hierarchives, if appropriate. Here are some details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms365406.aspx
2. Don't use duplicate attribute values, e.g. instead of "Closed Claims", use "Closed Claim - Status1" and "Closed Claim - Status2".

Awesome!  Thank you so much for the quick response.  For the specific issue I'm having, I tried using a different attribute name in the hierarchy where I'm having the issue, and it worked.  I also wee where I can use your tip on Ragged Hierarchies...
