    this judge does not look at the MEDICAL EVIDENCE… she goes by your age and if you are under 50 you are screwed…i had 250 pages and 10 yrs of medical evidence and was still denied after witness letters… STRONG medical evidence, letters by therapist, psychs… etc etc… had the dr get a RFC form that states severe in every aspect and still said lack of evidence…what else do they want?…if you are under 50 beware is all i can say…

    My experience with Judge Kirby was nothing but positive. It was a quick hearing for SSDI. She was genuine, considerate, cooperative, and friendly. The hearing was very brief. She introduced herself and the others in the room kindly. She explained the process of the hearing to me plain and simple. Overall my experience with this judge was nothing but pleasant.

    Obtaining SSDI is a long and an arduous process, however if you do your your due diligence, go to the doctors, therapist, specialists and show you’ve tried to work and were unable too…then Judge Kirby will be an advocate for your case. I had over 1080 pages of medical documents from my Primary Care Doctor, emergency room visits, my wrist surgery, Orthopedic Surgeon, Pain Management, occupational therapy, mental health therapist, personal letters from friends and family on the decline of my health. And the most important is to get yourself an attorney. Not to battle with the Judge but because it’s someone who can speak with her about your case on a legal level.

    You have to be your own advocate and make sure you have done all the necessary work. This is a time to teach out to friends and family and ask for help. Have them take you to all of your doctor’s offices to obtain your medical records. If you go to the emergency room or a walk-in clinic make sure you ask for a copy. Keep a daily journal of your health issues. If you are working even part-time and you have to call in sick keep a calendar or a log it on a journal. All of these things will help your case and hopefully Judge Kirby will rule in your favor. Good Luck to you all! And thank you Judge Kirby and your wonderful staff who have been very kind everytime I call the Moreno Valley office to make sure my records are in order.

    I had the opportunity to meet with Judge Kirby in November 2014 with my friend applying for SSDI. I was surprised to see the negitive comments written because when I met with her she was nothing but kind. Judge Kirby was sympathetic, companionate, and pleasent. She had nothing but patience with us, and I appreciated that very much. I’m happy I had the pleasure of having judge Kirby.

    What a horrible feeling, not having any money, no where to go, not being able to get hired anywhere, and even if I was that lucky not being able to keep employment because of my disability. After being denied by Marti Kirby I am at a complete loss on how to even exist. My stomach hurts so bad, and i am so wrecked with fear that I can hardly keep food down. I really hoped and prayed Marti Kirby would’ve given me a hand up instead of a foot down.

    “If you are looking for compassion and common sense try finding another judge. “ After my denial by the SSDI system and another ALJ, I no longer have any faith or pride in the United States. This country is a pitiful disgrace to the world. The rich and able bodied can continue to get richer while the disabled can die and go away, in their eyes the sooner the better. Wonder how many bonuses were handed out for meeting the “disposition” quota’s? They might as well fire all adjudicators and judges and just let random computer picks make the decision, it would probably be equally accurate.

    If you are about to present your case to Marti Kirby, I have two words for you: Be Scared. I say this because she does not seem to care about facts. I personally have not worked in two decades, have no real education, have been homeless for over a year and suffer from a condition even Marti told me she believes exists. The job rehabilitation person was present during my hearing and it was decided I was unable to work in any meaningful capacity. I have been told that there are some judges who act as pen pushers for the social security administration and are blind to any evidence, this is in my opinion what Marti Kirby is. Kind of like how a patrol cop needs to reach a speeding ticket quota, Marti needs to deny even valid claims. Her denial of my case could be the final nail in the coffin for me, it was bar none one of the saddest days of my life and will negatively impact the lives of my loved ones who are equally baffled by the denial. If you are looking for compassion and common sense try finding another judge. If you are the social security administration and need a judge to find any tiny reason to deny a hurting person Marti Kirby will fit the bill.
