I have a neuromuscular disease. She sent me to an internal medicine doctor. Then ignored the results. She told me she doesn't like me and that my doctors, my mother and I are all liars.

MY ADVICE: DO NOT GO INTO HER COURTROOM. Reschedule, find a new lawyer, whatever, but avoid her at all costs. Horrible, absolutely horrible. She breaks rules, the law, and still the appeal council does nothing. A useless parasite on the system. She ignores anything that any doctor you have ever seen has said, any claim of pain is "you're a liar", puts you into job categories you've never done and can't do because of your sciatic lumbar pain and arthritic knees, and literally fabricates testimony and evidence so that she can deny your claim. I've been through many custody hearings and by far Sharilyn Hopson is by far *the worst* judge/administrator I have ever come across.

Judge Hopson was lovely. She was very respectful and made the proceeding comfortable. She asked questions that showed she had reviewed the evidence. Judge Hopson genuinely cared about my sons disabilities. We are waiting for ruling via mail. Did not have lawyer.

She is so unprofessional. She discredits every doctor you have even if they are the treating physician. She outright states that there is a disability, but doesn't believe the doctors, even when there is FDA evidence of the challenges one faces. Distorts information and twists the hearing so it is not in favor of the person to receive the disability payments. She will even discredit their own doctors and not accept their evidence. She places so called experts on the stand that know nothing about the disabling conditions, than uses their testimonies.

She and her team of consultants not only ignore the medical evidence of disability, they outright state that there is none, making her decision so obviously biased.

She was so unprofessional in the hearing and rude. I was so shocked. I am suprised she allowed to be on the bench.

She is a friendly judge at the hearings. You want to make sure you prepare your client to explain their limitations well. Because answers like "a while" or "not to long" is not going to work. She does tend to use ME especiall in psych cases.
