    I received an unfavorable decision from judge Sullivan so I will be as objective as I can. She is straightforward, professional and courteous. The hearing was not adversarial and I didn’t get the sense that there were any “trick” questions; however, 99% of the questions she asked me was focused on my physical issues instead of my mental health issues. And it is my mental health issues that primarily makes working almost impossible. It is my opinion that if judge Sullivan had a good understanding of how bipolar depression negatively impacted my ability to work, I would have received a favorable decision. So if you file for mental and physical health issues and she only focuses her question on your physical, make sure you address how mental health issues affects you day to day – especially if mental health is your primary disability as it was mine.

    I am soon to be at a disability hearing in front of Judge Sullivan and can only hope that she will grant me the relief I so badly need. My medical history clearly shows how much my physical condition has declined.

    I just wanted to thank God for allowing me to be in front of a fair and professional judge. I had my hearing in May 2018 and I received my decision in November 2018. I can’t say that I wasn’t nervous and anxious waiting on the decision but I had faith that she would look at my medical records and realize the pain and other conditions that I suffer from on a daily basis. I want to say that this judge is as fair as they come and I that her for her time and consideration.

    She was very fair and she listened. Been fighting case for a long time and I’m grateful that I was given such a kind and fair judge.

    I am posting this before I receive my decision…if I agree with it or not… she was very fair and allowed me to present my argument. She was very polite, professional and treated me with respect.

    Judge Sullivan is can be very rude during a hearing . She is not fair and does not give very much weight on the treating doctoe give too much weight on doctors that have never even seen you . I give her a BIG FAT F … This women need manners in a big way … So don’t trust her …

    This ALJ’s award rate has dropped significantly in the last year or so. She will pay a strong case, but she’s gotten increasingly conservative.

    A very fair Judge. I hardly ever appeal her decisions.
