    Great Judge. 100% fair in my complex case. She made it possible for me to have surgery. I was in a really bad situation. She set up a re-evaluation date and provided enough time for surgical recovery. Oh yea.. I almost forgot. I am a Workers Comp claimant. Thank you Judge Betty Roberts Barbeito. You saved me !!

    I had to have 3 hearings. She was very thorough but fair. It took me 4 years but I got fully favorable.

    I’m a lawyer who has attended thousands of hearings. This ALJ is the most disgusting excuse for a judge, let alone lawyer, I’ve ever met. I pray she will be removed from the bench.

    Judge Barbeito presided over my case (remand)and I am thankful that she did. She was straight-forward and respectful allowing me, in company with my attorney, to address each issue fully. Finally, I knew my case had been heard.

    I am a disabled veteran rated at 100% PTSD, Panic Disorder, and major depression, and other things. Veteran’s affairs added Individual Unemployability and Permanent & Total which means I am unable to work and that my condition is permanent and not going to get better. Had hearing this week. I hope all goes well. If I’m denied, I will be in shock, but I will take it to next level and appeal. I will post again when I receive my decision from her. I’ve worked hard hard all my life and fought for my country and I suffer everyday from war trauma. I felt uncomfortable in court and had extreme anxiety and depression the rest of the day from that experience.

    To “An Observer of Comments”: Your comments are very ill-informed. First, SSR 13-1p states, “[p]ossible examples of allegations that the Appeals Council will refer to the Division of Quality Service include, ‘the ALJ is biased against claimants who receive workers compensation benefits or unemployment benefits’ . . . .” Second, when an individual applies for unemployment benefits he/she is not saying that they are “ready, willing, and able” to perform work eight-hours a day, five-days per week — the standard used by the SSA.

  7. An Observer of Comments says:

    For the person who commented, “If you are collecting unemployment, you might as well withdraw” actually is correct because when you apply for unemployment you are stating you can work but have no job and you are actively looking for one so, if you are collecting it and filing for disability, there is some fraudulent behavior going on. You can either work or you’re disable. Be grateful the judge doesn’t cite you for lying in court.

    She is rude, disrespectful and snotty to everyone. Not even close to being fair. Doesn’t know what she is doing. Puts you through the ringer and then kicks you some more. Ridiculous is the best adjective to describe it.

    The worst ALJ ever! If you are collecting unemployment, you might as well withdraw. She is not nice to client, rep, hearing recorder or any experts. She deffenetly uses her power in an abusive way.
