    Judge Weiss was firm on my lawyer, my lawyer had eight months to be ready and wasn’t. They expected me to get all the paperwork they needed I suffer from chf,dialysis,swollen legs ect..

    ALJ Weiss can be hard to read at times but, in general, he grants the case. He takes quite a while to issue a decision and although some of his denials are questionable, he actually is one of the best ALJs in NY based upon the number of his favorable decisions. As a lawyer, I am happy when I see my case is assigned to ALJ Weiss.

    He pays more than half his cases. How can you complain about that?

    Allegedly feels that the disability attorneys who appear in front of him are terrible lawyers. Yet as a Judge, he recently showed up at his hearing office at 9am, had hearings on his calendar beginning at 8am, and apparently had no idea he even had hearings. How can a federal judge not know he has hearings when he arrives at court? These hearings are potentially the most important proceedings in a claimant’s life and he shows up late and even worse, unprepared.

    Beyond arrogant. Could care less about adjudicating a claimant’s case and spends more time delaying decisions and holding unnecessary supplemental hearings. The guy failed as a commissioner of the ny workers comp board and ran off to be a disability judge because it was an easier gig. Completely anti-attorney. Make sure you get every single thing on the record and object early and often with this guy.

    Generally not a fair judge. He can sometimes sit on post hearing decision for 1 year. Does a lot of post hearing development. He often writes scare tactics letters to doctors, implying that they could be in some sort of trouble by writing a favorable RFC. He also questions, the doctors about fees they may have received for writing their report.
