    I am an attorney who successfully adjudicated a claim before this person over one year ago (August 2, 2016). I have not been paid my fee from ODAR or heard from her ever since despite all attempts at collecting. It is ridiculous!! Her assistant seems to be an *****. She says SSA does not have trained personnel…

    Judge Whitaker was very interested in me during my hearing. Let me start out by saying she has not ruled in my case, but I was impressed with her ability to show some compassion while remaining very professional throughout the entire hearing. She asked numerous questions, and did not appear to have made up her mind prior to the hearing. She asked some important questions. Good Luck to all of you.

    I have worked indirectly with ALJ Whitaker on numerous occasions. I have had many clients go in front of her for hearings and she is probably one of the more fair ALJs within Social Security. I worked with her when I was still with a practice in Indiana and I look forward to working with her more in the future upon her transfer to Ft. Myers. She is unbiased in her opinions and works off evidence, not off assumptions. Please notice when reviewing her that her numbers are one of the few ALJs whose numbers have stayed relatively consistent over time.

    ALJ Whitaker runs a fair hearing. She certainly is not a “giveaway” ALJ. Makes a decision based on the medical evidence and is flexible and willing to change her mind if the evidence is there. Does not appear to have an agenda as some ALJs do.
