I found Judge Allred to be very professional. He gave me all the time I needed to explain my situation and was patient and took the time to listen. If you find his name on your paperwork, you can plan on a relaxed, fair, and complete hearing. Judge Allred is more than apt at reading people too so no BS, be straight and honest or he will call you out!

Daniel Curran Unlawfully and willfully (Judicial Temperament)denied me my witness (Friends, family, Doctors and their reports/lab work/evidence/medical records)and asked me if I needed any one subpoenaed and when I said yes, he didn't make any of them show up for testimony. At one point his clerk looked at me and said "You don't need to be subpoenaing anyone, including your mother!" This is all illegal, including coercion by Daniel Curran toward me to try and force me to agree with what he is doing by unlawfully controlling the court room with no due process at all and not allowing me to have a fair trial and Daniel Curran is falsifying documents by filing reports and saying I have no evidence, and bringing in his friends and his own Doctors who have never met me or treated me or even talked to me before about my illness instead of my witness and Doctors to testify on my behalf to my court hearing. This guy needs to be looked at before "We the People" investigate him!

Without a doubt the worst ALJ nationwide -- and definitely the worst in Texas, which is saying something. Asks irrelevant questions of the claimants, gives hypos out of whole cloth, won't allow witnesses even though they're a due process right, and denies nearly every claim that comes before him, albeit after 6 months to a year most of the time. I'm not sure how this ALJ hasn't been investigated by the OIG for the SSA or, at least, been transferred and reprimanded for his conduct. If you get this judge, find a way to get a new one -- drop your case, reschedule the hearing, something, ANYTHING -- because if you go forward with this judge, it's not likely that you'll lose... it's assured.

My client had a hearing 8 months ago and has yet to receive a response. Rodriguez has the worst denial statistics in the nation. I wrote our Congressmen and the SSA Commissioner's office, also asked for a review of the case. If you have had problems with this "judge" please do the same. The only way to get him out of the office is to bring his despicable practices to everyone's attention. Your congressmen are elected officials with power in Washington, don't be afraid to use this. If you think you have a strong case ask for a Committee Review. If you want advice you may contact me at Jwoodhouse@edwardsdisabilitygroup.com.

I thought I'd back Mr. DeGregorio's statements. I've also had the "honor" of meeting this particular judge during my last hearing.

After having to deal with the particular ALJ twice now, I can confirm what most of the posters here have said. This man's action border on the criminal and hopefully someone within SSA will see this and conduct an investigation into Mr.Bundys actions. He does not accept what a claimant's Doctor's say nor does he consider any MRI reports as credible either. I wish there was a way to have this man removed and banned from ever serving in a legal position again. And Mr. Bundy, IF you happen to read this, you know how to contact me if you want to address my grievance.But be forewarned, I do have a few choice words for you that I will refrain from publicly posting. And if anyone else out there has had bad dealings with Judge Bundy, please post and maybe enough of us can get SSA's attention and get Mr.Bundy put to pasture where he belongs.

I have a hearing coming up in July 2013 does any one have any info about this Judge? I don't understand why Iam having to go through this process as my PC Doctor stated im permanent disabled due to Manic Bipolar, Depression and ADHD my state Psychitrist whom prescribes me my medication and follow ups wrote out the same report that I CANNOT BE LIABLE to work due to the fact that im Manic Bipolar Depression, Schizophrania, now when I went to a SSA psychiatrist she wrote out basically the same thing that my IQ is 40's and CANNOT WORK. However I managed to work in the past but got fired due to me making many errors and Owner did not agree that I needed to take medication and called me Crazy etc. I have been unemployed 2 yrs now and cant maintain to function properly, I forget a lot of things, cant do more that one thing cause I totally forget about what else im to do. So I just don't know why I still have to go through the process of a ALJ Court Hearing??? All the evidence is there from 3 different Psychiatrist and one whom is contracted with SSA...hmm can some one please help me out....I wrote this on behalf of my Sister, may God Bless her and help her with her case as she is not the same!

I had my hearing in front of a younger guy he was in his late 30s to early 40s but i don't remember his name. He was very nice he asked me most of the questions looked at my evidence and asked my lawyer if he had anything to add. He said no he thought i had said everything i needed to so he want going to waste his time. It lasted maybe 15 minutes then asked me if i had a drivers license and said he was rolling my date back to the date of my car wreck. I don't know if i won or lost but my lawyer said he felt really good about it.

This judge does not care about the mental help for the people like he pretend. With all evidence proving my claim he still denied me after saying verbally he approved my clinicals. Wonder why mentally ill people show their nature being a danger to others is because they are not receiving their medical help, which I am! I take my meds on time everyday that makes me sleep all day and he expect me to work. He based this case off of a lie from someone the government pays to lie not considering the truth in his face. I am Bipolar manic with several other mental illnesses taking several meds that keep me sedated there are witnesses he would not hear and barely asked me any questions. Other people that went before me had no atty won their case the same day and had the same disabilities by their own words. Yes, I will appeal and I'm not done yet he made several errors. People that don't need help are helped and the ones that do he just rather them kill themselves. I am sorry you are a grinch but you need to add love in your heart and quit wasting my time and tax payers money (which I put in my fair share until I could not do anymore) and fix your errors. How many more have you fraudulently denied????

There should be no stars at all for this judge. I hand delivered evidence yet his assistant pulled only what she wanted him to see. She did not pull my financial records for which I had my SSA 1099s and bank statements to back me up. I had a letter of proof for reporting work but it did not use the word work so he would not even allow me to show it to him. There are major discrepancies in my case money wise but he would not allow that either because he was not aware of it. My case is three combined in to one. One took place years ago and I have a letter that proves I did not owe. Yet the monies were taken from me 5 years later without 60 days notice. I requested a waiver after receiving the notice yet the money was taken a few days later even though the letter stated they would take $50 a month out. I requested a waiver which was approved and made no difference. Did the judge know about that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those papers and like I said he did not know it was three cases rolled into one. A social security worker took it upon himself to write a letter that stated I was being re-evaluated medically, I never reported workers comp. and I never reported my marriage. I have proof for all three which makes him a liar. Did the judge allow that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those records to put with his files. My husband was no where around when these incidents occurred with exception of our marriage. We went to the social security office three times and they made a copy of our license. The license had an error on it and had to be corrected. We went before our marriage, after our marriage and when the license was corrected. How in the world was I able to get a new social security card and a new Medicare card and use them the next month after our marriage if I had never reported my marriage? Get real. Part of the monies have been paid back either by my agreeing to pay back $100 or $200 a month and by money being withheld without my knowledge or agreement. Those monies have not all been applied to the monies supposedly owed. Did the judge know that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those records from my files and add to his. My attorneys filed for an appeal and a waiver the same month i received the letter of overpayment on one case. The local office lost those papers. That attorney no longer works social security cases for the Texas legal Hotline for Seniors so therefore he could not take my case back. The other attorney no longer works for Texas Legal Hotline for Seniors. Did the judge know that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those papers from my files to add to his. Did he go over my files with a fine tooth comb as he stated? NO HE DID NOT. Why? His assistant did not pull those pertinent papers and therefore he did NOT have those pertinent papers to go over with a fine tooth comb. I have 90 days from the date of that hearing to come up with why my husband who was no where around during these incidents save the marriage...why we cannot afford to pay it back. We are both senior citizens and this is all so asinine. If you are working with a Vocational Rehabilitation Service your benefits continue. Then why did mine end?

This Judge seems to be an idiot. He not only disregards professional reports on one's disability, but he appears disinterested in the whole hearing process. He can't wait to get it over with and deny the poor soul's fate. Someone really needs to review him and make sure he doesn't affect anyone's life ever again. This is serious. He has no idea how devestating his decision is to a disabled person. Get him out of here.

Went before Judge Harper on April 4th, 2012. I was impressed with Judge Harper. He listened to all sides equally. He asked precise questions and listened to my answers. He listened to my lawyer as well as the medical and vocational experts. All you can hope for is a Judge that will listen to all points equally. Even if I am denied benefits I do believe that Judge Harper gave me an honest and unbiased day in court.

To the individual who thought Judge Curran's decision was fair. You were lucky and fortunate not like the many others who were denied without justification

I recently had an appeal with Judge Shilling, he spoken to me with compassion and hearthfelt for my suffering which seem genuine. This being the first for me and never seeing what a Disability Judge asked. Truth be told, the guy was hard to read, not even my representative could read him. He also doesn't seem to care to much for representative's in general. He wants to hear it from the horse's month per se.

Judge Curran knows how to elecit information needed to make a thorough assessment of a case. I found his decision to be fair and did not feel as if he were trying to trip me up on testimony I provided. Very impressed!!!

Another negative ALJ out of this office. Look for him to try and trip up Claimant's in regard to their testimony. His decisions appear poorly written as well.

The states from this ALJ match up with how he conducts his hearings which are a joke. He will close hearings without allowing cross examination of the vocational expert and doesn't pay much attention to testimoy.

Judge Orr need to know he was chosen to apply the law as said in the book not to interpret or try to push his personal thinking or agenda. That is absolutely ridiculous 10% approval rate on cases that comes in front of him.
