    I had my court hearing with Judge Curran yesterday. My neurologist secind words were you are fully disabled and cant keep working.
    I had another judge before him we did a closed case because I had to make up work points after 3 years of not working per ssa and how long it was taking to fight. This judge looked at my over 1000 documents and he said, this poor lady should have never had a closed case. He gave me a plus and I am forever grateful to him that he reviewed my records, my history with my case and granted my disability. Thank you Judge Curran

    Have nothing negative to say. Curran approved my case nearly three years in and after another Judge denied my appeal. Thank God because I really needed it.

    This is what you need to be 100% prepared for when your hearing is scheduled with ALJ Daniel Curran. He will push you to the point of breaking, he is a no nonsense Judge. He is not going to have sympathy for your case until you can prove disability beyond any doubt. I will be the first to say I was completely shocked by his initial approach, but as we continued along our 4 year appeal process I began to understand why Mr. Curran used such harsh tactics. He is merely trying to get all the facts out of you about your case in order to prevent fraudulent claims. So if you are attempting to fraudulently obtain SSID , you can trust me when I say YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PULL THE WOOL OVER THIS JUDGE’S EYES…he has seen and heard it all. So my advice would be if your claim is legitimate, DONT GIVE UP!!!!

    Very very fair if you approach the situation in the right way you’ll get approved but if not you’ll get denied. I went in there with no medical records and no attorney and got approved!!!!! Thanks Judge Curran.

    When we walked in the room he was already mad. He didn’t look at any of the information on my case prior to my hearing. He was mad because an exhibit had a page 2 and his assistant Fred knew it was a blank page and didn’t note that in my file. He was mad because my file was a paper file not digital. He was mad because my attorney didn’t know all the exibit numbers that corresponded to the documents because it wasn’t made available until the day of the hearing. He postponed the hearing for a third time. I would not recommend him for a Judge on a dog show. He needs to retire or be evaluated for Biopolor disorder. I’ll be 60 in a few months I guess he’s waiting until I reach retirement age.

    Judge Daniel Curran was fair. If you have the facts and required documentation he will rule in your favor. If you do not then he won’t. My husband worked for 30 years at the same job before he became disabled. I believe that was taken into account as well. Its good to know that Judge Curran follows the guidelines and rules fairly based on the evidence that is presented to him. Its up to you to do your homework……………………….

    I received a partial judgment from Curran and one can see from his decision he will hunt and peck what ever evidence he wishes to deny a favorable decision to a high income earner. He used my age as the main reason to give me a partial decision and not my disabilities I suffered when I first applied for back almost two years ago that made me unable to work anymore. ****** my lawyer and myself to no end.

    Whoever else comes into this man’s court room come very prepared and make sure you have your RFC filled out and in your records. Have all your “i’s” dotted and your “t’s” crossed. You’ll need to beat this guy at the game. He will listen more to the “vocational expert” than you.

    Daniel Curran Unlawfully and willfully (Judicial Temperament)denied me my witness (Friends, family, Doctors and their reports/lab work/evidence/medical records)and asked me if I needed any one subpoenaed and when I said yes, he didn’t make any of them show up for testimony. At one point his clerk looked at me and said “You don’t need to be subpoenaing anyone, including your mother!” This is all illegal, including coercion by Daniel Curran toward me to try and force me to agree with what he is doing by unlawfully controlling the court room with no due process at all and not allowing me to have a fair trial and Daniel Curran is falsifying documents by filing reports and saying I have no evidence, and bringing in his friends and his own Doctors who have never met me or treated me or even talked to me before about my illness instead of my witness and Doctors to testify on my behalf to my court hearing. This guy needs to be looked at before “We the People” investigate him!

    I felt that it was only right to update everyone after my previous post. My husband Wendell Lynn Wall 45 yrs old, husband, father, grandfather and friend to many passed away after fighting for 3+ years multiple illnesses and system shut downs. He went to be with God on February 8, 2014. He always said he would never live to see his disability approved. Congradulations Judge Curran another win under the belt.

    After waiting 7 months for your judgement, we get it on the same day the doctors tell us that my husbands time is limited. He is on continuous o2 now and is unable to get out of bed even on somedays, leaves the house only for MD appts or hospital. So here the last day of 2013 all I can say is I WILL PRAY FOR YOU. We started this 3 Years ago and God willing we will see it to the end. DISAPPROVED, WE WILL TAKE YOUR ADVISE AND APPEAL WITH A LAWYER.
