    Her numbers speak for this judge as she has the highest denial rate on this office. She likes to play doctor and recommend treatment plans speaking as though her background isn’t in law but rather medicine. She gives little to no weight to all VA doctors, treating and evaluating, and doctors outside the VA healthcare system despite case law see McCarty verses Massanari. She also likes to cherry pick through the hypos the vocational expert uses instead of the factual comments the VE states when there is no work available due to your real life disability, not some hypothetical scenario. This judge works extra hard to deny disabled veterans with one hundred percent VA ratings. She clearly doesn’t like veterans or respects the VA health care system.

    Had a video hearing with this Judge. Her proceedings ran identical to the one described on 10/1/12. She was friendly throughout the whole proceeding and when she questioned the Claimant she did not get confrontational. Not sure of our outcome, but it was a smooth, pleasant process for all. There are FAR worse judges to be before.

    I’ve been in front of MANY ALJs that were MUCH worse than Judge Miranda. She can get tempramental at times, but for the most part she is very reasonable. She asks the rep if they want to give an opening, then asks the claimant about PRW, asks the VE to be ready to categorize the work when the time comes, asks the rep to go ahead with questioning, she will follow up with questions, will ask if the rep has any other follow up questions, then goes to the VE. She is very hard to read, though. She presents a hypo that results in jobs, then 3 or 4 that result in no jobs, so it’s hard to know if she’s thinking of paying or not except for the fact that she rarely pays! Very unfavorable.

    Judge Miranda is probably one of the worst ALJs I have been in front of. If there is any errors in your file she will blame you and call you out on it in front of your client. She claims that Social Security never makes any mistakes and that evidence placed in your exhibit file had to be put there by you. She will tell you that Social Security has no plausible way to make a mistake about exhibiting your file. What a crock of total BS. She is hateful, rude, and lacks any sort of judicial tact. How she got on the bench is beyond me. She should be removed.
