Confused by his previous decisions. I went before him with supporting medical documentation that I had been unable to work for 3 years. Had tried and completed every possible alternative before filing for disability, including a spinal fusion, and had a witness testify as to the continued progressive advancement of my condition, yet he still rejected my claim. I spent almost 4 years unemployed, loaded up on prescription pain killers, sold everything that I possibly could including family heirlooms that will never be retrieved just to survive and still haven't been approved. If this is what you call a fair judge and you can afford to live without employment or income than good luck he's just the one for you. Or maybe I just had very poor representation. Oh well this is life, it beats the alternative.

This judge was very calm and nice. He let me tell my side of things. I've suffered in pain for so long. I hope he approve my case. I was very nervous bein there but there was a hot blond court recorder to look at and I felt less nerves.

When I found out what judge would be residing over my remand hearing, I read these posts to see if he sound like he would be a fair judge. After reading the posts, I figured he might be fair. Either way, I was scared. Wow, he listened to everything I had to say! By the questions he asked, I knew that he had went through my paperwork with a fine tooth comb and he really showed the compassionate that I should have been shown by the previous judge. He is no joke and I believe that anyone that appears before him, will be satisfied with any decisions he makes. He seems like he is by the book, and he makes his decisions by the evidence before him and he will look into why something went south before the case came back to him. Judge Sampson, thank you so much for looking over my case and listening to me and my representative. God Bless You!!!

Very nice judge! New and younger. He will ask for a brief summary of severe impairments and argument at beginning of hearing, then he will ask most questions. Had five hearings with him today, two he told me on the record he found FF per GRID. Two of the others went very and he didn't even go to the VE, but didn't say OTR that he was granting, but should be FF. Seems like a very favorable judge, and pleasant to claimant and attorney.

Nice judge, asks for opening/theory of case naming severe impairments. Seems open to award if you have a good case. If you need to amend your AOD do so right a way and normally he will go with it. Very favorable if you have grid application. I had some weak cases with him, but awarded the 2 good ones I had.
