    This guy shouldn’t be a greeter at Wal Mart, let alone a judge with the power over people’s futures. He isn’t neutral! He’s already made up his mind that you are not getting disability so unless you’re in a chair or need help into the courtroom you can forget it. My hearing took 15-20 minutes, he didn’t ask anything so I was unable to address his questions or opinions. When I received his determination he stated that while I had a serious medical injury (neck), I was fat and had been doing pull ups according to my medical records. The doctor’s appointment notes said, “Did FIRST pull up.”, not multiple pull ups and this was 3 years after the injury. He also said I went to the doctor for a dog bite because that was on the doctor’s appointment notes. I was getting my shots and just happened to have a purple thumb or a whole in my hand and the doctor asked what happened. I’ve been bit several times and didn’t go to the doctor or ER. He makes assumptions and judgements without giving you a chance to refute his claims. And once he gives his judgement there is nothing left for you to do. He’s a S.O.B. and deserves something slow and painful for his disservice (My Opinion). God will judge him or a petitioner. The guards responsible for protecting him also called him a four letter word outside his court.

  3. I just had my hearing after 19 months of waiting. I received a partially favorable decision which means I will only get some back pay. I lost about 13 months of pay. Judge Jenkins was pretty fair and definitely a straight shooter. My advice for anyone who goes before him is to answer all questions honestly. He WILL try to establish your credibility by asking questions he already knows the answer to. He even asked questions about one of my family members and roommate. Something that only I would know. Also end every answer with “Your Honor”. Show your judge that you respect his authority or his standing. I forgot a few times but I think that’s normal since I’m not an attorney. Be honest with him He is the type that will call out or question lies or half truths. The biggest thing that helped my case was that my doctor prescribed first a cane and then 5 months later a walker. The walker was the key to winning my case so ask your doctor to prescribe you one. I also had a decent attorney. Not a lot of prep but somewhat helpful. Remember Be honest with the judge. They know more than you think.

    Due to corona, I agreed to do my hearing on the phone.it was supposed to take place at 3 but was delayed.we started at about 430 so I guess the judge was grumpy from the get go because he had to go past 5.this was a nightmare.the judge accused me of things that weren’t true and kept trying to catch me in lies.he wasn’t successful but his tone and the way he spoke to me triggered me because I just got out of domestic violence situation.he wouldn’t let me speak up and I felt afraid of him
    I was crying and he didnt care.i also noticed the tone was normal when he spoke to lawyer and vocational lady.i have mental and physical reasons why I cant work anymore.ive worked my whole life since 16.i am about to turn 50..the jobs they chose for me to do are impossible for me to try. I dont think I got a fair shot from beginning. Also side note to anyone going for disability Please read ur medical files because they can be incorrect. Doctors writing down tests they never did during ur visit.most time doctors dont evenvtough u yet they write down they did a test during appointment. I’m awaiting appeals now.God Bless

    I had read these comments prior to being in front of Judge Jenkins, and was expecting something different than what I experienced. I found Judge Jenkins to be a normal, no nonsense kind of individual. I did not feel pre-judged, nor did I feel intimidated by his demeanor. As to the vocational expert, again, I did not find her to be adversarial either.

    Finally Had my hearing on 4/4/18 with Judge Jenkins with the Las Vegas ODAR Office.

    My file has been in their office since 7/27/16. In July of 2017 I finally received my date for my hearing.

    11/27/17 is the date scheduled…….yes, the Monday after Thanksgiving. So, after waiting anxiously for over 480 days,

    they call and cancel it on Black Friday…..yes, the day before my hearing basically. Do you think I was put back on the

    schedule right away? Nope!!!!! Had to wait 5 more months for my hearing.

    As far as Judge Jenkins, he was professional and courteous……..hearing lasted 30-40 mins. My attorney thought it went well.

    My file is waiting for a Decision Writer as I write this. So my only real gripe is the cancellation of my Nov hearing and not being

    expedited automatically. As of todays date , my file has been with Las Vegas ODAR for 659 days. Im hoping for a good outcome.

    Has to be the worst Judge I’ve ever come across in NV. Their alleged “expert” was nearly an hour late and he was ALL peaches and cream with her. I wasn’t even put on the calendar for the hearing, and the wannabe rent-a-cop at the door in his rubber gloves and magic wand didn’t want to let me in. I sat in the waiting room for 50 minutes before anybody spoke to me. Judge Jenkins flunky called me, but somebody needs to tell these ****** that when you’re dealing with the hearing impaired/deaf you need to speak up. He wanted to waste my time lecturing me on representation and wanted me to review THEIR file. My file and their file are two different things. He also had his flunky take my sugar-free Powerade out of the room. Not only out of the room, out in the hallway, between the bathrooms, on top of a water fountain. Somebody could have put something in it, spit in it, drank out of it. I’m filing a Judicial Discipline Complaint and taking my case to District Court. This **** is truly unfit to be on the bench. His attitude and tone of voice are of the worst I’ve ever seen. There’s a statute on that specific demeanor. The Barney Fife knock-off at the door has the very same demeanor and disposition. Neither of them have any business dealing with the impaired and disabled. BOTH should be decommissioned ASAP! IF either of them call themselves MEN, what a disgrace to the gender, they’re both ZERO’s! And Lisa Rhodes is as incompetent as they come. That warrants a complaint of waste and abuse. Overpaid and underworked.

    For a judge to watch you cry and break down in court over something and the judge continue to do the same **** by ignoring the claimant and denying the ssi/ssdi. Just another statistical old white male judge with a 36% favorable approval rate. The judge don’t care about you or your claim, he only wants to keep his job and his paycheck.

    I had a alj hearing with this devil dog judge, but was also denied disability benefits. The previous comment about this judge is accurate.

  10. Public says:

    Mr Jenkins, it appears you have made the choice throughout a good portion of your working life to hold positions within the scope of Public Servant. Including receiving your education as the result of service for the people of the United States. You are in fact a employee of the tax payers and citizens of the United States. A public Servant. As a employee it’s apparent we the citizens and tax payers find your conduct, your attitude, and your ability to perform your duties as defined to be sadly lacking. Please make every effort to rectify theses issues, or seek other employment . It would be a shame to have to have your service terminated by public forum, petition, and public demand. In other words, by the people who employ you, the people you in fact are employed by and work for.
