People please know your rights.. We will parish for a lack of knowledge... The judges will be kind and they will appear to be concern, but truthful they are not.. They will fixed your file to agree with what they want to say... Justice is not for all.. You have have 15 years of treatment that shows the illness continue to get worse , but he will find one thing out of 100 years of medical records to base his ruling off. People read your rights, go to your congressman , right the president about how corrupt SSI system is.. I am not blaming the judges because the are a victim of this system too. The have to go against the ethic training and deny you so their number of approval is low.. They want to continue to feed their family.. The best way to expose corruption in the SSI system is to take it to new press , protest, have rallies until your cry is heard..

Still waiting on final decision because my case went to "Quality Review" after the Judge's decision. Judge Peterson helped me to feel comfortable at my hearing. Do yourself a favor and be completely honest. Give him the benefit of the doubt because I got the feeling he knows when you're blowing smoke. I was "totally" honest about my being Bipolar and how it's been hard for me to keep a job because of my mood swings and personality disorder. I was so nervous. I take different medications ( 7 ) to manage my Bipolar. He asked a lot of questions but I didn't feel irritated as I normally do ( part of my illness) when someone asks me " a lot" of questions. I'm also a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and my illness has been really ******* my relationships with family, friends and employers. Because Judge Peterson really was kind respectful and courteous, I didn't feel that way at all. Even though his case approval rating is less than 50%, I really feel good about my outcome.

We are still waiting for a decision, but he was very polite and had reviewed the file prior to the hearing. He treats both the claimant and attorneys with respect.

Judge Petersen asked questions, but he allowed me time to respond. He asked another question if he didn't fully understand my initial response. He was mannerable and did not intimidate me as the others I have read about. He did not talk down to me and I did not feel degraded. He was not rude and was very professional.
