Got a partially favorable out of this pugnacious judge back in 2012. Was find with his ruling but appealed a couple of things he erred on. Appeals Council appeared to agree with me and vacated his decision on remand to fix those things. He was not happy. So he waits almost ninety days and rules on my birthday I'm now no longer disabled at all. This judge is a menace to the public and will use his office to target claimants he doesn't like. He's rude and insinuating. You get this judge? Request recusal for your own sake.

I was declared %100 disabled around 2000 by a board certified pain specialist. I have applied foe dissability 16 previous. I have been denied every time. Over these many years I have lost my home and every possesion worth anything to support my two children. I have developed savier depression i have attempted suicide 7 times before seeing this judge and once when again I recieved his denial after waiting 70 day.s for a responce.I am couch ridden and cannot walk without really bad back pain froma spinal tear. I went befor Cuscer may 29th 2013. I was bankrupt and owed friends and relatives $30,000. I am unable to sit in a chair without pillows allowing my back to be at 45' angle. Cuscer mocked me for bringing the pillows to court. Both my G.P. and psychiatrist reported limitations that resulted in no jobs available for me.He still denied me!STUNNED

I went to court on 03/22/2013 This Judge comes across as being rude, However he really does listen. He asked questions about my case that were really important. By the end of the trial I wasn't sure if he was on my side or against me. With all that said, I just received a fully favorable award letter on 05/23/2013. I'm so excited!!!!

This Judge is RUDE and inconsiderate. I wish they would allow the lawyers to choose the judge that will review your case.Everything you say he acts as if it is a lie.

Below average ALJ. Not pleasant at all to deal with and borderline rude. He will search and search for any apparent inconsistency that would not be normally material to most average ALJs but use that against a Claimant in reference to credibility. I don't believe his decisions are well written so remand is frequent.
