Judge Deat, Yes i am a Christian. Yes i do have a Good mind. The info that you Gave me will be used to prove my point with the Va and gives me The Truth of what they have done to me over the last 9+ years. If you knew what i went thru to just get the meds. They refuse to grant me that alone. There lies with what i wanted show them Prof of what is going on. You need to look up ptsd with Dystonia. I would show you 90% of what i brought to the table was totally right. Now this gives me what i need To know for myself and to push on. It is not right for Good men to have to do to get understood. I Thank you. I got exactly what i needed. That alone shows he pick a good man to be a judge.

He was very kind to me, after being denied twice in the past, and he approved me with very few questions at the hearing. He is a fair judge and a good person. I do think he wants to help people and shows compassion. He had really read my records, was knowledgable about my situation and had a few questions about things. He's smarter than the other two judges I saw. Do Not Lie To Him. My lawyer advised me be as honest as I could possibly be even if it makes me look bad as being lied to or omitting things is his thing that really pisses him off. He does ask provoking questions that you may not like answering, but answer them honestly anyway. I did and I was approved, and my answers were a little embarrassing. We don't apply for disability because we're well. Good luck!

Judge Dent is firm but very fair. I was very happy to amend my onset date and very thankful with a partially favorable decision. God Bless you Judge Dent.

My daughter's disability benefits has been stopped,thanks to Judge Dent. I am on disability,and, cannot support myself and my daughter. She was also denied Medicaid.This Judge Dent has ruined many people's lives,from what I have been told. We will fight this to the end.

I have found this judge to be extremely arrogant and dismissive of claimants. He once told a homeless client that "at least he has a tan." He also found that a schizophrenic client was able to socialize/maintain social functioning by going to church... a church he regularly attended because he thought he was Jesus. Your case could go either way- judge will often ignore numerous documents confirming disability by claiming he didn't find the claimant credible.
