    Judge is very pleasant to both rep and claimant. However, he gets annoyed when people talk over him, which is fine. He very politely tells them not to do that. Acknowledges the brief but does not ask for opening or closing. He knows the file very well. Will ask rep where something is that client alludes to in their testimony. Also, he seems to go by their Function Reports when asking questions. Therefore, review their completed function reports.

    I had a SSDI hearings on Tuesday with judge Micheal Stacchini he was very pleasant after the hearing he said he would make a decision as quickly as possible. Judges jobs are not easy it can be very overwhelming they have cases after cases all day just the fact that he was willing to give me a chance and read all the medical records MRI and what ever else you may have there I am thankful I’m just waiting for my decision.

    I had a hearing on May 23 2019 of course I have not received a decision as of yet, but I found that ALJ Michael Stacchini seemed very fair and interested in hearing me plead my case. Although I’m no mind reader myself and attorney are very confident that the judge will rule in my favor fingers crossed this has been a terrible fight from day 1 3 years ago. God bless and everyone feel better soon

    I have no problem giving my name to this comment .. I went up in front of Judge Stacchini Jan 9th.. I found him to be a fair and honest person even though he denied my benefits … I have read and read over his decision and it seems that he really was not educated in my disease … I feel that he thinks I was lying under oath … I would not do that ,,, he also said that there was no listing for Fibromyalgia when a listing was added July 2012. I do not blame this or take it personal as he is one man trying to make the right decisions as best he knows .. But I do feel he twisted my words against me . I would like to ask why would I fake the pain I live with all day and every day … why would I give up a job that I was paid $25 per hour and my social life which was to rescue and train service dogs and search and rescue to just lay in bed all day in pain ? As a single parent of a schizophrenic son I would give anything to have my life back now all I see is darkness … I worked for doctors and they wrote a letter but he never brought that up ..I have spent all my life savings paying the rent and bills for over a year if I could work why would I just spent my savings ? Last night my son took his meds and went to bed I got up to go to the bathroom when yet again my legs gave out I was on the floor for almost an hour before my service dog ( that I trained for others but when I got sick kept him for me ) could wake my son up to come and pick me up and carry me to bed … I cried for hours feeling so helpless I will appeal but I feel that by that time I will be homeless as I am late on rent and about to have my utilities cut I pray every day for God to take me but I have to be here for my son I am all he has … Again this is not an attack on Judge Michael as I said before he was a very nice man trying to do the best job he can i just wanted to let him know that I do not resent him just the system and maybe myself for trying to be so tough and not go the route of pain management I will not take oxy anything as I have seen first hand people becoming addicted and that is not for me … one last thing when I was in so much pain I said to the doctor I just want to see my mum s no matter how old we are when we hurt I want my mother .
