    I have been trying to get approved for disability for over two and a half years, this entire time I have had legal assistance.

    Judge Hamilton has been the first judge to try my case.

    Due to Covid restrictions the hearing was to be virtual but the platform they used was glitchy and ended up being a phone call.

    When I did see judge Hamilton via virtual she seemed callous and ready to quickly get this over with to get to her next one.

    The hearing was quick. There was no room for me or my attorney to speak on my behalf.

    Judge Hamilton appeared bias and judgmental (haha)…

    She seemed to not believe I was in need of assistance due to my young age. Most of my disability is non physical and a condition that is not very common or understood.

    She asked me odd questions and responded back quite rude. For example she asked if I helped out around the house. I told her that my caregiver does it mostly due to my disability keeping me nearly bed bound. She responded back “you can’t even do that?” It’s like she was viewing me as lazy.

    I wrote a detailed brief letter. With all the information needed on my case but medical records. I stated my history, my conditions and their side effects, my normal day, etc.

    When I asked if she received the letter she stated that her assistant read it and gave her notes. I’m not sure if this is true or she reviewed said notes…

    In my opinion this judge is very quick to maintain social security status quo by making you jump through hoops and a lengthy process with many many hearings. Hoping you just give up, saving them money.

    She evidently is almost guaranteed to deny unless it is so obvious that she can’t get away with a denial.

    It’s sad that something that was set up and paid by citizens does not truly support or care for our citizens. With most judges being burnt out and headless such as judge Hamilton…

    Its now been 7 months since a friend of mine with PTSD and severe depression has seen this Judge and still NO ANSWER. My friend is slowly losing their self due to lack of income and finances to pay their bills. And with OK dropping funding for mental health it is getting harder and harder to get them the treatment and meds they need. Judge Hamilton please don’t try and blame your lack of speediness on so many cases are do to overload, because down in south Texas where the population is three to six times as here in Oklahoma they are getting people their rulings within 6-8 weeks. If you judge Hamilton are unable to do your job in a timely manner then you need to step down and let SS replace you with someone who can. Or is the problem that you just enjoy playing mind games with people who have mental health issues? Either way, not impressed with you at all as a judge..

    A good friend of mine who is suffering from PTSD saw Judge Hamilton this past June 2017. He felt that she was nice, seamed to be concerned and he left feeling like all was good. Well 5 months have now passed by and nothing, all he gets when he calls is someone saying the Judge has yet to sign off one way or another on his case. Leaving someone with mental issues in limbo this long is not good at all. I cant believe that she is that busy that she couldn’t of signed off one way or another in five months. My friend has no income, so far he has help from others, but that is coming to an end. He is facing the strong possibility of losing everything he has and not being able to afford his medication because some judge feels its ok to take their time deciding someone else’s fate..even if she would deny it ( which there is NO REASON to ) he could get on with an appeal, but instead she is leaving him in limbo…NOT GOOD zero stars for Judge Hamilton

    After almost 5 years of trying for disability Judge Hamilton approved my case right on the spot. Of course having a good attorney was helpful. The Judges and attorneys don’t make it up as they go along. If you don’t have a valid medical condition and medical records you won’t be successful. So don’t hate the judge.
    The hatred does you no good.

    Whoever wrote the comment of 3-8-15 has obviously not presented very many claims to this ALJ, nor have they reviewed her record. While there is no doubt but that ALJ Hamilton is a very nice and kind lady, there is also little doubt but that she is either completely incompetent or just does not care. This is evidenced by the claims that she approves versus those she will deny.

    I have numerous examples of claims that ALJ Hamilton has denied where the evidence in the claim is much more substantial than in a claim she had approved. There appears to be little reasoning to her decisions and a complete lack of understanding of the law.

    To state that denials from this ALJ are because of some lacking “qualifications” or “documentation” is just being naive. Unless of course the “qualifications” referred to are the qualifications of this ALJ.

    I initially filed in April of 2013, my hearing date was Nov. 2014. I was extremely fearful walking into the court room. When I saw Judge Hamilton, I felt a sense of calm. She didn’t look stern like I anticipated. She was up to date on my condition, she had to if read my file in detail to know the facts she knew. She allowed me to speak without feeling rushed. I got very emotional several times during the hearing and she was patient and asked if I needed a break. Judge Hamilton asked several questions regarding my diagnoses. Here’s my thoughts on the disability system…if you meet the qualifications and the documention is there from the proper people then the judge has no reason to deny. The denials are because something was lacking in either the qualifications or the documention. The negative comments left will be only from people who get denials. The positive ones will be from the people who get approvals…my opinion has never wavered…no matter what the outcome is, Judge Hamilton was kind, respectful and didn’t make me feel less than or scared. Thank you Judge Hamilton.
