Judge Revels though very conservative, will give a full analysis to the claims in front of her. Reps and attys alike should be prepared to discuss everything in the record including negative items. Judge Revels will ask about comments a claimant makes to a doctor such as “I mow lawns for money” or “patient tested positive for XYZ illegal drug/alcohol”. Not that these comments should rule out a finding of disability but if your representative is good he or she will be prepared to discuss everything good and bad about your case and be prepared to ask you questions or present arguments to clarify any misinformation or justify nonsupporting information in your medical file. Though she is very strict about keeping questions direct and concise (and not afraid to direct a rep or atty if she sees fit) she will allow a full presentation of the case and cross examination of witnesses. This I appreciate because I am not always granted that opportunity. I have not experienced any issues in hearings with Judge Revels being racist or bullying and she certainly does not deny every case. I admit I am a better advocate as a result of her guidance. Just be sharp and be ready to present your case.
She is a law breaking judge she denies people because of age regardless of medical proof. She needs to be removed and not be able to practice another day she tries to write people off as being addicts and alcoholics shes is an rude and mean person her discriminatory acts should be punished I hope she one day becomes disabled and have to go through process and get a judge that will treat her as she have treated many.
Laura Revels Culler, eh? GOod to see an unbiased write-up from a concerned member of the public. ALJ Revels is terrible. Pompous, bullying, and mean. I have been before her many times, and I always know she is going to unjustly deny my client out-of-hand.
judge revels is a great judge. she is a beautiful person inside and out. I saw her when i was 17 years old . and she had me explain my case to her and my ilness. SHe granted fu;;y favorible in my descion. If it was not for her in no way would i b where i am today. We cried in the court and by the end of my case she left me with some very encouraging words… seeing her a blk woman as judge let me know i could i do it . I am trying to find her email so i can give her an update on me … tho i still am sick it hasnt got me down continued on with college and looking forward to entering my schools nursing program in the fall. AND NO I AM NOT A FAMILY MEMBER
Notice the only positive feedback was left by a family member. i.e. Laura Culler, Laura Revels Culler. Judge Revels is the worst judge ever!
