Judge Fraiser is not a very nice person. I was struck by a car while walking. I suffered severe injuries to my body, head, spine, leg and arm/shoulder. Judge Fraiser suggested I could work as a parking lot attendent! When I tried to remind him that we had discussed the PTSD I have, and real fear I still have of moving cars around me, he told me to SHUSH! I was denied! I have written a complaint and refiled. A PARKING GARAGE? Is that some kind of sick joke?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU JUDGE FRAISER, My file has been hanging in the balance since 2012, was sent to Jackson Ms.from Ga.. Between Belinda Hemphill, Judge Fraiser and Sonya Frisby I had an appt. schld within 2 weeks for a hearing. I have to use the library computor due to being homeless and a friends phone. I have prayed a Judge would see my file and approve based upon the facts, but at least I got an appt date because Judge Fraiser saw it as dire..Thank you Sir and those ladies who help make this possible...God Bless you all and Jackson Ms ODAR for doing their job above the national avg. Thank you so much

Based on our experience this ALJ used to be very friendly, easy going and had a much higher award rate. In the last couple of years he's become much tougher and has a very conservative award rate. He tends to like to work fast, asks rapid fire, pointed questions to claimant. Usually asks one hypo based on DDS and one assuming inability to do full time work. Does not usually ask for opening or closing and does most of questioning himself.

I found Judge Frasier to be quite understanding and personable. He did change the onset date, however he had a sound basis for so doing. I say, "Keep up the good work."

Guys I understand your frustration. Been denied, however not by judge fraiser but my point is I know people that have very limited things wrong with them and yet they get approved no problem. Also I think these judges shouldnt be able to make such decisions based on medical evidence when they have no clue what some of it means. they are not doctors and have never worked in the medical field. So how can they determine whats severe or not? Or as my denial stated you have 3 severe impairments but not severe enough. Oh the world we live in

How does this man sleep at night....really? Has denied my disabled daughter twice already and she has overwhelming evidence proving she is disabled. Idk how all these ppl faking it to make it can get a check yet she has to struggle and cant get help? Someone needs to pray for these folks to start approving...because the economy is already bad enough without us all scrimpimg and sacrificing to get the help we need and medicine and choosing between medicine food and bills to live.smh i bet none of the judges have to evvvvver sacrifice and worry and go hungry or without meds or utilities or be homeless....we have.
