How could one judge approve 78%, and this judge 22%?

If you ever get judge Kelley, you may as well start your appeals council report, this judge is by far the worst in the United States. The sad thing about it, nobody seems to care. My advice to anyone, before you apply for social security disability, move to another state, you will not win in Montana. She has to be writing her decisions before the hearing. What happened in Queens, New York has to be coming to Montana, what's going on here is too obvious. Judge Kelley is a hired gun from West Virginia, her approval rating there was a whopping 7%, and she keeps her job, only in America.

This judge is getting worse, next to Alaska, you have no chance to win in Montana. Who's watching these judges, no wonder West Virginia told Kelley to please leave.

Did anyone else have this experience with this judge, she relies strictly on people who never examine you, and discounts doctors who have seen you for years, even social security doctors who perform CE exams. This is abuse of power.

She seems to go through the file looking for anything negative that she can use to deny the case. Good judges give Claimants a fair opportunity. She seems to be completely consumed by getting the hearing over with and finding a way to deny the case. I also think she largely writes her decisions ahead of time. One has to wonder why even have hearings with that type of approach.

I have a strange feeling she starts writing her denial before the hearing. It's funny, if she approved 83% of her cases, there would be red flags going off everywhere, she's so far the national average it's amazing. I can't overemphasize the need to stand up like the Queens, New York victims.

I have to agree that her numbers and metrics do indeed merit an investigation from the national office.

This hack of a judge has a 71% denial rate....seriously? She denies people based on her hefty prejudices. This woman should be disbarred and thrown to the wolves. Shame on her for acting the way she does! She doesn't deserve to do this job, denying genuinely disabled people for her sick pleasure!
