After almost 5 years of trying for disability Judge Hamilton approved my case right on the spot. Of course having a good attorney was helpful. The Judges and attorneys don't make it up as they go along. If you don't have a valid medical condition and medical records you won't be successful. So don't hate the judge. The hatred does you no good.

Whoever wrote the comment of 3-8-15 has obviously not presented very many claims to this ALJ, nor have they reviewed her record. While there is no doubt but that ALJ Hamilton is a very nice and kind lady, there is also little doubt but that she is either completely incompetent or just does not care. This is evidenced by the claims that she approves versus those she will deny. I have numerous examples of claims that ALJ Hamilton has denied where the evidence in the claim is much more substantial than in a claim she had approved. There appears to be little reasoning to her decisions and a complete lack of understanding of the law. To state that denials from this ALJ are because of some lacking "qualifications" or "documentation" is just being naive. Unless of course the "qualifications" referred to are the qualifications of this ALJ.

I initially filed in April of 2013, my hearing date was Nov. 2014. I was extremely fearful walking into the court room. When I saw Judge Hamilton, I felt a sense of calm. She didn't look stern like I anticipated. She was up to date on my condition, she had to if read my file in detail to know the facts she knew. She allowed me to speak without feeling rushed. I got very emotional several times during the hearing and she was patient and asked if I needed a break. Judge Hamilton asked several questions regarding my diagnoses. Here's my thoughts on the disability system...if you meet the qualifications and the documention is there from the proper people then the judge has no reason to deny. The denials are because something was lacking in either the qualifications or the documention. The negative comments left will be only from people who get denials. The positive ones will be from the people who get opinion has never matter what the outcome is, Judge Hamilton was kind, respectful and didn't make me feel less than or scared. Thank you Judge Hamilton.
