Judge Myers reviewed my case and did not take into consideration my medical records in full and made law errors and then was sent back to him and he denied it again after not fully reviewing records and getting medical evidence wrong and then tried to say I had bad character and was exaggerating my symptoms, then had surgery which left my right leg permanent weaker now because of false diagnosis so him trying to say i was making it up is so horrible for a person who has legitimate reasons for their pain and mine was caused by a car crash, this judge is completely unfair and biased on cases where people are young and don’t look like they have a problem and i think he denies people for his stats its clear he is not a fair judge and should not be in this position making biased decisions of whatever he wants instead of going by the social security laws which we all have access to. I really do think someone should investigate this Judge something is not right at all.
I and My Lawyer went in front of Judge Myers. Today Aug 22,2019
This is my second time in front of a judge ,But Judge Myers was very respectful great smile and was very plesent to talk , I am not sure what the out come of my case. But I pray that with all the evidents that he has a great heart and approve me case. i have been going through this for for 4 years Iam tired and stressed I will know that answer in about 2 month.
Well today I went before Judge Myers, I don’t know what will happen in my case, but I have to say judge Myers was very nice and listened to me and my lawyer and allowed me to sit or stand when I needed to, so I had a good feeling about the judge weather or not I will be approved or not. Thanks
A disability lawyer told us that at one time judges had the freedom to look at each case objectively. But there were so many bad judgements that SS has run out of resources. Now judges are nothing more than protectors of the kitty. Their decisions are no longer based on need, but on how they can find a loophole through which they rule “unfavorable” to keep their ratio’s intact. If there is a poster child for this type of judge, in my opinion it is Daniel Myers. Case in point; my son. He was hit broadside by an SUV when he was 17. Suffered brain shear and was in a coma for 12 days. Lost half his personality, but worked hard to regain what he had left cognitively and physically. He continued schooling with academic help only to be diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder in early 20’s. He’s been in and out of hospitals many times, is on a long list of meds, and on bad days has serious dilutions. All this is well documented. Went before Judge Myers for SS benefits only to be told he could bus tables and was denied. My son has been trying to keep a job bussing tables ever since. The only restaurant that continues his employment gives him about 5 hours per week because he is slow. Other establishments have fired him. I certainly wouldn’t want anyone to have to watch a son go through what mine goes through every day. But in my opinion, if judge Myers had a loved one that struggles like mine, he’d be on disability. The system has failed my son.
Most judges lead you to believe they are smarter than you and Mr, myers is not an exception. This worthless ALJ completely ignored most of my medical evidence, ignored and apparently thought that what i was telling him in court was not believable, he didnt believe my lawyer and he didnt believe the work guy that was there that said i could do no work. How is this guy even allowed to be a judge? I’ve not worked in 4 years and i’m homebound most of the time. I’m in the process of appeal but it shouldn’t have even gone to that had certain people known how to do their jobs.

I’m unsure whether Judge Myers reads these posts but either way I would just like to sincerely thank you for your decision about my case. I could imagine there are numerous cases in which the claimant tries to pull a fast one & just wants to get out of working but I truly am unable to work in my condition & I greatly appreciate you acknowledging that my disabilities are in fact real. I wish I wasn’t in this situation, I was always a very hard worker & would give anything to have my life back to where it was over 4yrs ago, but unfortunately, physically & emotionally my body won’t allow it. So again, I’m truly thankful for your decision to allow to get the help I need!
Judge Myers reviewed my file and denied my disability case without reviewing the file’s medical evidence. After notification of his mistake, he again denied and ignored medical evidence submitted. He contradicts himself in his decision and totally ignores the medical documentation submitted.
