A stern, fair, fact-finding Judge. Although the entire claim processing time was long, Judge Hillegas, through patience, careful review of all facts/evidence will without a doubt make an informed, unbiased decision.

As an attorney who has also appeared before Judge Wesner, I am amused by the earlier comments. They must necessarily have emanated from a claimant or attorney in a case which was unfavorable. That, or possibly from an advocate who was intimidated by the Judge's superior intellect.

I just had a hearing with this ALJ. Even though I don't know how the decision will come out, I can say that he held the hearing in a kindly manner and was not threatening to my client. He was very fair and very thorough.

This guy is one of the smartest judges in all of ODAR by far. A bit brusque at times, he knows how to get to the heart of the case.
