Judge Haigler was previously in Shreveport for a couple of years and was always very fair. You would be hard pressed to find a better ALJ.

I am a Minnesota attorney with 25+ years of experience. First, a comment about the "low approval rate" at NHC in St. Louis. Their office is trying to help hearing offices around the country catch up on the huge backlog of claims. You can decline a video hearing and wait many more months for a hearing in person with a Minneapolis judge. Many attorneys tell me they always decline the video hearings because of these same statistics. What they don't understand is their actions may be the exact reason the statistics look so bad. The judges are much more likely to dismiss or deny a claim that does not have all the important evidence in or unprepared witnesses. An experienced attorney matters. My clients and I have appeared in front of Judge Haigler multiple times. You can tell he has always read the file carefully. (Not true of all judges.) Like appearing in front of the Supreme Court for oral arguments, he will tell the attorney at the beginning of the hearing the specific parts of the record he needs clarified or explained if we want to convince him of the severity of the medical problems. He is respectful and courteous questioning the claimant. He allows you to go past the usual one hour hearing time if you have a translator or essential witness.
