This judge was very polite and pleasant. He took the time to commend my attorney on a well organized briefing and thorough description of my disabilities. He listened to my testimony, asked the questions pertaining to my case, and made a fully favorable bench decision on my case. I can't stress enough the importance of hiring a GOOD attorney, NOT the ones that advertise on TV that herd you like cattle. It's important that your case be presented thoroughly and accurately. This judge was fair in all aspects of my experiences with him.

Very fair and gave a fully favorable bench decision on the spot for my husband. This has been a three year battle and we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm a Rep and I've appeared before this Judge a few times. He'll try to rope you and your client in with his southern-boy charm, and even intimate that he's on your client's side. He asks only few questions which seems to suggest that he's going to award the case. You'll walk out feeling good. Then you'll be flabbergasted when you receive a denial. Granted, his stats aren't all that bad. Unfortunately--because he consistently acts like your best friend at the hearing--you'll never know which way he's leaning until you get the decision. Because of this, you need to treat each case like you anticipate a denial. You MUST address each and every aspect of your client's impairments in excruciating detail. Cross-examine the VE thoroughly (in terms of their testimony in response to both your and the Judge's questioning). Don't neglect the Step 3 analysis--request a post-hearing CE if necessary. Discuss the applicability of all SSR's in your opening/closing statement. Ideally, submit a brief. These are only a few suggestions. The point is, don't leave any stone unturned.
