    He’s an asshole, he’s not doing his job and it’s more than aggravating, it seems like no matter what evidence is presented on my behalf, he’s still going to deny me my disability.

    How can you file medical discrimination against this judge? He completely disregarded my claim. Premiere disability misrepresented me at my phone hearing. I have some serious medical issues that my former employer is responsible for. Judge Johnson told premier disability he didn’t think I was sick. I was exposed to mold and chemicals at a hospital where I worked. I was fired after 3 years because I was too sick to work. That was almost 9 years ago. I have been denied multiple times by SSA. I cannot wait any longer. I will be homeless because I do not have the money to take care of myself and am unable to work. It took 10 years to even find a diagnosis because my symptoms overlap. My attorney filed again for me today, but said it could take another 6 to 12 months for a hearing. I do not have that long. I cannot even follow a complete treatment plan because medicaid wont cover it and there very little income. can anyone help?

    Judge Johnson allowed me to fill in the blanks between health issues, testing being done, and let me tell my story as when it started to present day. Just remember to stick to the major points that got you where you are don’t waste time going on and on about one thing. It’s your life make sure you know the laws search SSA guide lines as to whats considered disabled. I would say once you have an attorney you must feed them information such as anytime your medication is changed, you have a test done at the hospital, and/or what your PCP pushes you to do such as physical therapy, see a pain management doctor, and if any of these doctors doesn’t believe you are in pain or have limitations change doctors we have to have a PCP in your corner. ASK QUESTIONS !!! KEEP RECORDS !!! EMAIL OR FAX EVERYTHING TO YOUR ATTORNEY ASK THEM QUESTIONS !!!
    Remember it’s your life you need to or your wife or your parent has to lead your case to the winner circle. I found Judge Johnson to be fair. Good Luck !!

    I was denied disability because of my attorney’s failure to represent me properly. He didn’t bother to obtain my medical records until one month before hearing. He didn’t want to meet with me to discuss what to expect. I sat there like a fool while being thrown under the bus. There was no vocational expert at hearing. I was told by judge that “I looked to good to be 60 “. I have a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome. I was basically called a hypochondriac. My bladder recently ruptured during a cyscosopy procedure. I came home with a catheter. I am unable to stand, lift or twist. Judge Johnson found me capable of being a cashier.
    I am devastated by the misrepresentation. I worked very hard during my life and now at 62, I am financially ruined and no possibility of ever working again. The system has once again failed. **

    I wish to thank Judge Larry E. Johnson for his fairness, and understanding. He can not begin to know the life change he has given to me. After a life of horrific pain and struggle, he saw that the blows from the hammer of life had taken it’s toll. I have been a recluse for so very long. He is a very compassionate , and understanding human being.

    In my opinion, the review of Judge Larry E. Johnson written on 8/27/12 is spot-on.

    I just found out attorney, john kunlein, requested my medical records one month before my hearing. He went back only one year. Why didn’t the judge question that?

    It should be known that Judge Johnson saved a life recently. By way of his diligence and willingness to consider records spanning close to three decades, Judge Johnson saved the life of a woman who was at risk of otherwise falling through the gaps. She was also at her wits end, and reports she would have killed herself if she had not received this help as she was unable to pay for the care she needs, and was unable to make the simplist arrangements to seek help for herself.

    I was surprised to see that ALJ Johnson has better stats than the other 5 Tucson ALJs for 2012. Although this ALJ was a likeable guy at the hearing, his decision had very little to do with the evidence presented. He completely disregarded the testimony from his own vocational expert. He discounted ALL favorable medical opinion and ALL lay witness testimony for the flimsiest of reasons. Many of his finding of facts were inaccurate or simply made up of whole cloth. My conclusion: this ALJ is just plain lazy (which, I suppose, is still better than “evil”).
