What a day, anxiety was high and emotional is an understatement. Mr. Blanton was truly understanding and gave me time to compose myself after the tears, anxiety and emotional outburst. He was very understanding and patient with me. I wait to hear my decision via mail but I felt he was very fair and had compassion.

He was very understanding and nice. Allowed me to enter the court room with my husband and got straight to the point so we were not in there for ever. Almost like he took his time reviewing the case file before hand and already had his decision made.

This is an excellent ALJ. I'm sure his denial rate will go up at some point a little but he will show compassion and treat everyone fairly.
