A very nice, compassionate judge. Goes out of her way to make claimants and attorneys welcome and comfortable with the process. Very fair and thorough questioning. If the evidence is not there, you will probably not prevail, but I can tell by her demeanor that everyone who appears before her is treated with kindness and respect.

In 2007, my ME did not have time to read my medical records, did not believe a word I had said, and stopped my W.Comp from that day forward. In 2010, one day prior to my hearing with Judge Sanya Hill Maxion, I knelt for the 2nd time ever in my life at home, and prayed to God and Jesus above, to please let my SSDI judge be a human being, be kind, caring, and loving, and be someone who would give me the judgment that HE would give to me. Whatever it would be, I would accept it. I knew in my heart that HE knew that I was truly injured and could not continue to work. The moment I entered the hearing room and saw Judge Sanya Hill Maxion, I saw the love on her face. If God was a woman, she was Him. And my Allsup representative was my guardian angel. When I go home, I cried and cried with gratefulness. I used to know OF God, but now KNOW Him. He IS love. Thank you God, and thank you, Judge Sanya Hill Maxion, and my Allsup guardian angel!

1 of the top 2 judges in the Oakland ODAR. If you lose with her, then you have no case, essentially. She will ask reps to expand on any arguments they make with specific references to law, regs, rulings, or the evidence, before she considers them. Judge Hill-Maxion will give you a lot of leeway to develop cases post-hearing, to clarify negative issues, and if an ME says a listing, she'll end the hearing very quick to grant.

A very fair and understanding ALJ who knows the law and ensures that the "right" things happen. That's very important because of the waiting time to get Social Security. It was a pleasure to go before her, regardless of her ruling.

The 2nd best ALJ in Oakland. She has a relaxed and kind personality. She will listen to what your are saying. However, you still will need have favorable MD opinions that are supported by objective medical records/testing

Although, I do not know the outcome of my hearing just yet, I must say this Judge made my hearing so easy, so stress free. Very pleasant, and I felt very fair. Sweet, seemed to care.
