I am an attorney representative who has appeared before dozens of judges throughout California and have appeared before this judge several times. Unfortunately, the comments that describe he lacks professionalism and general courtesy in treating claimants and representatives professionally (whether he agrees or disagrees with the strength of the claimant's case) are true in my experience. This is something that judges are bound to exercise and demonstrate pursuant to the model code of judicial conduct; Joseph Schloss however does not abide by those canons when he is frustrated or opines the case is not a strong one. Again, this is a fair comment based on my experience as a lawyer having appeared before numerous judges throughout California.

I went to see him on 2/20/18. He automatically decided that just because I haven't had any seizures in nearly 6 years that I am well enough to work. He also dismissed the fact that even though I was on the CPAP for sleep apnea, my PCP noted I was on it for smoking cessation. I never smoked a day in my life. When I stated that I was still on in because I may die in my sleep, he said, "Well, you're not dead, so why are you still on the CPAP?" I pray that there is no one else who gets this judge when they appeal.

Judge Schloss heard my case this past August 1st, 2017. I was very pleased by is professionalism. He is definitely a "no nonsense" kind of guy who bases his decisions on evidence and logic. My hearing was short and to the point. He asked questions and I answered them. He was pleasant, friendly, and noticed my long work history (16 years on my last job). I really appreciate him acknowledging that. When my hearing was over (approximately 15 minutes) Judge Schloss wished me well. I have to admit, I was terrified when I walked in to that hearing room, but my fears were soon forgotten within a few minutes of starting the procedure.

As an attorney rep, it is my experience having appeared before Judge Schloss that he is a fair and empathetic judge. His demeanor may be perceived as a bit 'gruff' but from a judge's perspective (especially with attorney representation) hearings really should get down to the issues and legal theory being presented to show CL meets the definition of disability.

I have appeared before him several times as a representative and I have always had a good experience. I do not feel that he has discriminated against any of my claimants as claimed by the other comments, and I have represented a wide variety of people. If you do not understand the Social Security administration's regulations for disability and the five step sequential evaluation then you should not be going into a hearing without an attorney.

This judge and I use the term loosely, staight up lie in the brief that I was sent. He had me having an anurism and off work almost 10 years before my accident happened. Either he can't read or someone else did the review of my case because the majority of the stuff he put in the fact finding brief was NOT me. SMH

This judge is a bigot

This is not a judge. He is rude, disrespectful and has a serious God complex. He rolled his eyes and cut me off everytime i spoke. He would twist my words and everything i would say. In the decision paperwork my disability was stated as severe, but the "judge" said he did not agree with the fact i met all the requirements! How is this justice and right!

Fix the SSD office and hire honest judges. Judges that state the truth. I received the letter of decision which was full of #'#'#, let's just say I would rather read something that stated the truth.

I am a Med. Ret. Service-connected Veteran with a VA rating of 90% disabiled and 100% unemployable. But this cat thinks he knows more than the medical people and denies my case. Can I see your License in Medicine? And don't they need to be honest?

I filed a motion for recusal after he accused me of lying and he ruled on his own motion, DENIED.He tries to be intimidating but is really just a coward in a robe and a disgrace to the whole judicial system. I have made it a personal objective to make sure everyone knows what a disgrace he is but guess what, I could not file a complaint with the State Bar because he isn't a real judge, he is an administrative coward. My last hope is to expose him in Federal Court. My best advice if you happen to draw this Judge is to change the venue to another county and hirer a good attorney and if you have to represent yourself as I did preserve and state objections do not get bullied object to the paid hired guns he brings in to discredit you make sure you have more then 5 minutes as I had to review their resume and object,object,object,!

Back a number of years ago, I found myself caught between a rock and a hard place and emailed him. He gave good advise, I followed it and sent him a thank you note via USPS. This is a good and honest judge.

My son who is 26 years old was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia 4 years ago. We went before this judge and was told he could shine shoes. He was denied. When we arrived home my son burned himself with a cigarette 26 times. Enjoy this beautiful day.

I think he is a strong judge and just wants to hear your case clearly to help him make a decision but my lawyer said I definitely have a case he just said it might be hard because of my age but I didn't pick my age to become disabled its runs in my family and I have more than enough work credits I just hope he makes a decision over my medical records rather than my age!!

I had my Disability Hearing in Moreno Valley with Joseph D. Schloss as the Judge. To start, I always thought that judges were to be fair and honest. I guess that does not apply to Joseph D. Schloss. I received my Notice of Decision. The decision did not bother me as much as the fabrication of statements I did not make and the twisting of the statements I did make. This is unfair and NOT honest. Where are the laws to stop judges from perjury?

I am currently working with him to prove my case. Because the doctors I went to did not give me a decent examination it was basically visual and they did not have enought of my medical records from my specialist I complained to congress and have been assigned someone who is going to review my case from the Senate.

Abrupt, arrogant disengaged with claimant. Jumps all around timeline of illness and rushes you out of his courtroom

He is very arrogant and disrespectful towards claimants and their needs for disability. He will find a way to discredit everything!! If you are unlucky enough to have him as your ALJ be prepared for a very long and stressful time proving every aspect of every tiny detail.
