US Advocates appear before all administrative law judges across the country- while some judges may seem harsher than others, all are not in the “business” of denying claimants’ claims that appear before them. They review the case folder before them, take the claimants testimony, review the medical evidence, request an occupational experts opinion, etc., then compares the entire file against the criteria in which the Social Security Administration allow the judge to grant the award or denial based on.
Im pretty confident in saying that if your claims folder is developed properly, highlighted how you meet the criteria of disability according to SSA, the judge is more than happy to grant disability. On the flip side a poorly developed claims folder is guaranteed to be denied. A judge can not produce a medical claims folder that does not exist, nor a work history, or clear inconsistencies. It can only review whats before each of them.
This judge is TERRIBLE! He just wants to play God and deny everyone. He doesn’t even look at the evidence. He just automatically denies. We have been trying to get this approved for over 5 years, then a week before my hearing, he postponed it “indefinitely”! How can he get away with this nonsense??
This judge is obviously biased towards denying claims.He called my wife, childs teacher, and doctor liers. It was obvious from the beginning of the hearing that he had already made his decision prior to us even entering the room.He is obviously not qualified to make determinations based on any claims of impairment.
This judge is obviously biased towards denying claims. My mentally retarded daughter was deny benefits by this a++. The only evidence that he chose to give any weight to was that of a state appointed vocational specialist and psycologist, he dismissed all other evidence which included 18 years of school IEP records, personal physician notes, and special education teacher recommendations. He called my wife, childs teacher, and doctor liers. It was obvious from the beginning of the hearing that he had already made his decision prior to us even entering the room. He dismissed state wasl reports and any other testings supporting our claim and cherry picked through anything that supported his position. 2 years of heartache and waiting down the drain.
Look at his record of the last three years, obviosly that of an activist judge in the making. He is obviously not qualified to make determinations based on metal disorders.
