    Open and considerate as said above. Moves kind of slowly.
    Sometimes I think he does not get more complicated issues-
    you have to explain them to him. But he is very compassionate.

    I was shocked by the treatment I received from this judge. I am a case manager and was representing my client who is deaf and intellectually disabled. My client did not understand the importance of being present and did not show up. However my agency is his representative payee for his Social Security benefits and I had all documentation to prove it. Judge Williams stormed in the living room and yelled at me saying that my client better show up or the case will be dismissed. I approached him identifying myself and he scram that he did not want to hear me. I am familiar with many courts and have been representing my disabled clients for over 5 years and have never been treated with such disregard by anyone else. I was shocked and so was everyone else in the waiting room including the security guard. It is sad that someone with no social skills has such a high position in a federal agency such as the Social Security Administration. he dismissed the csse and my client will soon be homeless.

    In my experience he is open, considerate, and fair minded. I too felt lucky to have him hear my case. He stayed on topic, and considered all of the evidence I presented. I felt he did exactly what an ODAR ALJ is supposed to do — make sure that the rules and laws are properly applied.

    Hands down the best ALJ in oakland. If you get him, consider yourself very very lucky.
