In reading the judge’s decision for my 34 year old son, I found many discrepancies throughout the document, a few were outright lies. If my son were able to work a steady job, he would but with his problems no one is hiring him. Maybe you should be his mentor and hire him. Because the time he worked for 6 months he had a mentor until he was taken away. I hope you sleep well knowing your decision was not based entirely on facts. Sincerely, his mother
I’m an attorney who has appeared before him in a number of claims. His credibility analyses are unfair. He presumes every claimant to be dishonest and it is a very high burden for them to overcome in showing they are not. I’d have more faith in his decisions if he approached cases objectively, but when everyone who walks into your hearing room is already presumed to be a liar, it’s hard to make fair decisions. He runs a very professional, clean hearing, but his mind is made up before you walk through the door and even the most honest claimant or a mountain of objective evidence in their favor isn’t about to change it.
Really was disappointed with his decision in my claim. You have to be on your death bed in order for him to make a favorable decision. His numbers dont lie 56% denial rate i have chf and a defibalator
