    I thought she was extremely nice to me and respectful! I’m extremely shocked because she was understanding and not rude at all. Honestly I might have gotten lucky according to the remarks about her? I don’t have my decision yet and I won’t know for awhile. Regardless even if she rules against me I figure it’s God will for me to get on my feet and get a job. My heart is in the right place, and I thought she went above and beyond to judge me fairly. She asked tons of questions and allowed me to answer slowly. When I was confused she told me to take a deep breath and not to be overwhelmed. I loved her!

    In all my years as an attorney working in this field, I have never met a more rude, unempathetic, unprofessional, impatient, condescending, arrogant judge…to both Counsel and client. There is no room for an ALJ like her in this area of law. First, the hearing started late and then it took nearly two hours. One hour had passed before she even asked the claimant a relevant question. Claimant was sitting there squirming in pain and clearly frustrated. I understand some cases are weaker than others, but it is NOT her place to call out the claimant in open court and question their subjective pain, based on her assessment of the evidence, and refuse to give them a break when asked for because she thinks they shouldn’t be in that much pain. She did everything but call my client a malingerer and even questioned his motive for filing for disability. My client was angry and distraught, and the ALJ was rude to Counsel as well, which is in line with other opinions of this person. An ALJ can disagree with the level of severity of a condition, and may not think a person is disabled, but that is what the written decision is for. An ALJ’s job during the hearing is to review the evidence, listen to the client’s testimony, act cordially and professionally, appear empathetic and when all is evaluated, render a proper decision. The ALJ hiring process is extremely rigorous and lengthy. How this person managed to be hired as a judge in this area of law where we deal with a sensitive population is beyond comprehension. I feel bad for anyone who gets this judge.

    She can’t make up her mind on what she wants to do with the cases. She is always cancelling out the cases to please herself and she is self-serving. She can’t do that big ALJ job. She works the employees too hard in order to make herself look good. She hollers at them and excuses them of her mistakes.

    You know that you are not working; you are just pretending in order to get that big government paycheck/handout.

    She is incapable of performing her ALJ duties. She keeps the whole office busy covering up the fact that she don’t have the mental capacity to do anything right.
