  1. Being disabled should not become a hindrance to obtaining or maintaining meaningful work. I became disabled in 2019 due to almost constant exposure to cleaning solvents. It took from 2019 until 2023 to finally put this ordeal behind me. Due to an inability to work, I lost my home. Was forced to move multiple times to different states. That in and of itself extended the wait. Now that it’s finally over I will find myself at 55 trying to retool my skills for a second career. I believe I still have some good years left in me and I do not intend to waste them.

  2. Honorable Winfrey, I hope you read these comments. I just wanted to personally thank you for your decision. It took me for what seemed like forever, between losing my home in N.Y.C. My misfortune of being forced to live with family in ALABAMA, to finally finding myself living in Ohio to put this oddesy behind me.
    I am eternally grateful to have seen the end. If there is ever anything I can do to personally repay you please don’t hesitate to let me know.
    I plan on returning to school to attempt and retool my skills soon and hopefully now that this is over return to the workforce. You have given me the opportunity of a lifetime, I do not see my disability as a hindrance. Rather a new beginning.

    This is and wonderful man and I’m not basing this off my case being approved or denied. I won’t forget his patience and if I have to appear again, I would love to have him again.

    A polite, professional, and patient judge that listened with attention to all in the room. Efficient and did not ask any trick or irrelevant questions to make my feel more nervous than I already was …..

    What an incredibly kind and thoughtful Judge! It was a pleasure to appear before him. He asked the claimant detailed and pertinent questions. He did not rush anyone. Everyone felt at ease. He is an example for all SS Judges.

    Citizens with disabilities are not treated equally and it has to end now. The phrase that no one will be discriminated because of their race, ***, religion, origin, or disability does not hold up as it’s suppose to. As a student that walks around Downtown Columbus, I know and interact with many people with disabilities. As I see these people go about their day, I’ve come to notice that they are often restricted of things that I can enjoy or want. I believe that if we expand the ADA Act we can not only unity our community but better the lives of those with disabilities.
