I recently went before Judge Grooms and found him and his court personnel to be kind, gracious and courteous. This judge is every bit of what a judge should be the process was handeled in a strickly professional and straight foward judicious manner. I found him respectful specific and looking for the same kind of answers. I was to articulate my disability limitations and to give an explanation and example on each point. If anyone had problems with this judge I would suggest you look towards your attorney and not the judge. Every "I" must be dotted and "T" must be crossed your paperwork MUST be in order along with medical documention that matches up. As for Judge Odell Grooms he is NOT a prejudge man I did NOT sense for moment that he looked down on me in any way!

I'm posting this feedback BEFORE we've gotten a decision from this judge, so you'll know that my comments are not biased by his decision. I found Judge Grooms to be well-prepared, attentive and caring. He wanted to hear from the person with disabilities, not just the lawyer representing her. He was formal, but that's his job. He made sure that everything was on the record so that there would be complete information, should his ruling need to be reviewed. I'm optimistic that he heard what was said, so it will be interesting to see if he is able to find a ruling to match the requests. Regardless, I believe Judge Grooms will be a fair judge and appreciated his courtroom manner.

Very unfair! God will fix it! I was denied my benefits after putting more than 45 years into the work force. Disabled, denied, but not forgotten by God!
