I have applied for ssdi back in 2020 I went before k dickson grissom back in August of 2022 he continued it until January of 2023. I am suffering from a failed ruptured disc surgery , degenerative disc disease, being p& t disabled for ptsd from the veterans affairs, i went from one ruptured disc to now having three bulging discs. Im in pain constantly, i can find no relief from the pain even laying down. Most days are a struggle to get out of bed. I just want my body fixed but its looking like long term is the outcome. I feel that my attorney has presented well but, the ssdi doctors seem biased to save the state money. I have presented more than enough medical records. Including mris. I just pray for a good decision.
Judge Grissom is a fair judge that displays integrity and upholds justice.
I have appeared in front of Judge Grissom many times. He is tough, but fair. He knows the rules. I think he appreciates it when the lawyer is prepared and has met with the client before court. Edwin A. Anderson of Cannon & Anderson, Attorneys. (865) 522-9000.
great judge –very patient and listens to the claimant–found him to be very fair
THIS judge does not listen to anything you said and when you do talk he acts like your wasting his time if you go before this judge you will be denied he makes his on laws dont go by the laws to me he is worthless
This judge was professional and has a sense of humor. Why they call him “Grumpy” I do not know. He knows his job and the law well…
These statistics are flawed in the percentages presented. They all are flawed on this site.
The only numbers that reflect the true behavior of an ALJ are his or her decisions on the merits. ALJ Grissom had 213 determination on the merits of the claims. (Subtract the dismissals.) 122/213 = 57% approval rate, 43% denial rate. He is about an average ALJ in his approval rates vis a vis the national average.
