Nervious, after almost 3 years to get see him, and two months ago. a law firm starts with "P" miss leaded me to believe I had terminated their empolyement for poor communication skills,and laziness. I rescheared and found a local go gether that knows how to hunt for the paper work. Anyway I feel better going it alone,at this point. Cant even afford anymore time. Really Lost how people can get medical documation, Nobody within 3 counties wont take Medicad share of cost... My duedilgence, he is one of the highest 10% paid Adminstrative Judges, which means he's good and knows his "A" game. I have lost my life twice, Daughter,wife( after 24yrs.) It takes so long to get here, if favorably then another 3months or more before the calvary comes. Guess thats cause people trying to get for broken toes....still cant believe that. the way i look at his stats its a 50/50 chance, top ten in Admin. Judges i wouldve to give him a 10 even if i am diened .... Paper work i found out is 80% your case and 20% is testimony.

I am appalled at the courtesy afforded to me on my initial visit. I phone in I get told in a very courteous manner waiting for med. rec. which should be in by the 17th call back after that. The next day recv. docs. from the court the first in a very official way. The latter doc. was very unprofesional and illegible. consider this within my 10 days to reply. Thabk You. MJL/0632

These posts really scare me!!! From what I understand, I have to go before this Judge. I went for a hearing already and a decision was made, but because the Judge retired, the decision is void and I have to go for another hearing. I am in desperate need of help and now after reading these comments, it looks as though I may not have much luck in getting the help I need. Signed, homeless!!

There are no words to explain how I feel but I will try, After going before Judge Andres in Ft. Lauderdale 3 Minutes into the hearing, I felt like I was A piece of **** asking for Disability help for a Broken Toe. My family and I are Devastated beyond words or description My Treating Doctors are "Blown Away" that I was denied. Now I know why so many people decide Suicide and kill themselves. If the public could see my evidence,....Well, It's one that would shock the Conscious of the Community..... i.e. Blow peoples minds...

I had 4 hearings with him and he denied ALL 4 claimants, this is statistically impossible. I do not know what his gig is but he will have to learn the hard way about aggressive South Florida lawyers.
