My reply below was supposed to be 1 star, definitely not 5.
I was recently denied by Judge South and I have no idea why. My doctors agree. My therapists agree. My lawyer said I had a strong case. The vocational expert testified that there were no jobs I could do. I have a feeling this judges statistics are very wrong. He seemed very kind and understanding, but didn’t mind denying me when I’m sick and facing eviction. Thanks for making me homeless, judge. Can’t even afford my antidepressants anymore. Thanks.
Judge South was very knowledgeable about my case. He seems to me to be a very caring man. He allowed me to tell him my story without treating me like a defendant . Most Judges either don’t know or don’t care what I’d been through. Judge South Did. Thank You Judge for treating me with respect and Dignity! I have much respect for you Sir.
Judge South was very nice and helpful and advised me to retain counsel before proceeding with my hearing, promising he would get me a new hearing date in a timely manner and he did so. He was suppose to reside over that case, however he had a conference on that date and Judge Anderson proceeded over my case. I was absolutely terrified, but Judge Anderson was very diligent and asked many questions, the right questions if you will, he was extremely nice and compassionate and I was given a fully favorable decision at the hearing and received it by mail in less than two weeks as he so promised. I feel both judges played a part in my favorable decision so I thank them both. Having a disability and waiting years to see a judge is terribly stressful and I am very grateful for these two judges being so compassionate.
I felt that Judge South knew somehow exactly where i was coming from and how much ive suffered. He was compassionate and took time with me answering questions, etc. I have been in so much pain with so many health problems and i dont know how i would have lived without my approval, which means income and insurance. Just make sure that your doctors give good legible notes because otherwise ANY judge will have a hard time determining your case.
I just had hearing with judge South I was denied I have choric pain in legs back also neck I use a crane to walk also stomach ucle and bad headaches this judge is so not Fair I have no income what so every I don’t no how unfair people sleep at night just unfair! I am on different pills that makes me sleep others help me this is not Right no God in this judge .
Knows his cases – keeps hearings short and to the point. Look forward to hearing with Judge South.
Most thorough questioning from an ALJ I have seen in 30 years of practice. Done in a respectful and nonjudgmental manner.
Awesome. Smart, efficient, productive and would be an asset to any office.
