Very professional, follows maybe all the procedures, but comes in unprepared.
Judge Jones in my opinion is somewhat fair. First I want to say that she had my decision to me in 30 days. She was a Worker’s Comp judge in Washington DC. After I read her findings, seems like she is against approving disability to someone who is under 50. She seemed to use what you say of things that happened in the beginning of your disability more than what is happening to you at present time. Watch what you say. All in all, she is a compassionate person, she is very by the book. Make sure all the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed.
I will not know my outcome for a while, but regardless, Judge Melissa L. Jones is a very capable, thorough judge. She put me at ease and my hearing process went smoothly.
