    Hanan mailed me a notice of hearing which stated my hearing MUST be done via phone. (yep, a phone call) However, in his letter of denial or whatever its called, he states that I had “waived the right to appear in person at the hearing or or by video teleconferencing”. Yep. Although there are several other areas of concern in his denial letter, based on this fact alone I find any judgement made by Hanan in regards to my case IS NOT CREDIBLE, and I question if he is merely careless in his mistakes or flat out dishonest.

    Everyone who is saying that he’s the best, fair ect. Are coming from those that he approved. How can someone with one leg be considered to be NOT disabled? This judge suck and need to retire

    Its very rare in todays society that you meet someone in Judge Hanans position that listens interacts with claimant and also shows so much professionalism of his job. You can’t helpvbut feel that he wants to hear your story of how you got to this point in your life’s journey. My advice is if you don’t draw him as your ALJ your missing out on one fine judge.!!

    Very pleasant and understanding judge. Tends to talk very fast. Treats claimants and reps very well. Usually questions claimants first and then lets rep follow up. Gives realistic hypos to VE.

    I was in front of Judge Hanan last week, as the determination of my case is still unknown to my 100% I feel compelled to share my expirience. I agree with everything I read so far. He is fair, he is kind, he does listen , and he does ask a lot of questions that are important. He judges you only for what he hears and sees in his court room , any prior testimony from other SSA workers is not an issue. As I know I need my Disability and its well deserved, I am pretty sure he has approved my case because he is smart and knowledgable. I really liked him.

    Very good judge – no nonsense, straight-to-the-point. I agree with the 8/8/12 post.

    This guy is a good judge. He knows what he is doing and he is fair. He is balanced in his decisions; not too lenient, not too strict. If all judges were more like him, I think the system would be much better off.
