Judge Lamb stated at my hearing there was no work I could do then turned around afterwards and denied my claim. He looked at opinions of their Drs that have never even saw me over all of my Drs opinions (3 diff Drs). I have numerous issues and take to many meds to list. Some of the info that I received back from him isn't even correct. Now to appeal if I live long enough.

I had the opportunity to present my case in front of Judge Lamb in April of 2016 and he was very helpful. I didn't have an attorney but he still treated me with respect and ensured I understood the process. My decision was favorable and I am grateful for his compassion concerning my case. He also was very knowledgeable of my records and submitted paperwork.

I had my day in front of Judge John S Lamb today. He was understanding and very fair. He made me feel relaxed. Needless to say, I think he is very honest judge even though I couldn't go back to the beginning of my disability claim, I understood the decision he made.I thank my lawyer, the vocational expert and judge lamb for the quick and favorable decision. This judge is the real deal

I think Judge Lamb was as fair as they come, he took time to read my medical records and knew my health would get no better. My health is getting worse and i am very thankful he took the time to read my medical conditions. I wish he also issued the checks, he awared my disability on June 17, 2014 and recived first check fourth Wed. in Sept. I have yet to get my back pay and everytime I call I get a run around from each person i talk too. I wounder if they had to pay interest I would get it any faster. December 17 will be 6 months, I beleve if Judge Lamb was over that as well we would not have to wait as long and keep getting a run around. Sincerly, Stacy Godfrey

This is one of the worst judges I have appeared in front of. He pays no attention to the testimony, is unfamiliar with the details of the record, and has clearly made up his mind before he ever hears the first word from the claimant. Although he comes across as personable, he shows no capacity for actual empathy and evaluates people from a position of distrust rather than trust.

I like Judge Lamb. He made the best decision he could considering my attorney was not prepared. Judge Lamb makes you feel comfortable during the hearing. He can sense when you are nervous and makes you feel like everything is going to be ok.

Judge Lamb is one of the best judges I've appeared in front of. He pays close attention to what the doctors are saying and what the diagnostic tests reveal. He is kind and respectful to claimants. But do not mistake kindness for weakness. If your case is not a strong one, you'll have to work hard to convince him but Judge Lamb has always given my clients the benefit of the doubt.

I enjoy my hearings with Judge Lamb. He is sarcastic to reps which I don't take as negative and he has always been kind to my clients. I respect him and appreciate his willingness to have a discussion about the case.

I had Judge Lamb in 2009 and he was more than fair with me...Done an On the Record review and apologized for me ever having to wait....Never held the hearing because he said it was clearly unnecessary based on the file...
