Judge Flowers had thoroughly reviewed my file and asked a few questions for clarification. The hearing was conducted in a forthright, fair and respectful manner.

Judge Flowers was well aware of the issues in my case and had thoroughly reviewed my file. Her decision was based on the facts in my case and on the law. She told me before I left to expect a decision within a week or so; took a little longer but I know the delay was not her fault. Thanks Judge Flowers!!

This Judge is 100% unfair. She does not make decisions based on the medical evidence in the file. She always try to make professional comments that she is not qualified to make. She has denied me twice and each time I appealed it and the case was sent back to her for a new decision. This time the appeals board ordered that a NEW Judge get my case and follow the law and make a new decision. I pray that the correct decision is made this time.

I am curious because a attorney advised me that NIKKI FLOWERS is no longer a judge! I know she has really changed my entire life. I don't think that she is capable of doing her job . I know that she doesn't read information that is turned in regarding my case . Each decision made wasn't based on me , and in the hearing they have a person who decides what work you can do. He said less than minimal! My decision said I can lift 50 lbs and do this for a full time job! I believe that she has ruined many people's lives and not even blinked a eye ! She should not have a job because she doesn't do her job! Rude, states request information but never does! I pray she is gone! Every case that she has made ruling should be reviewed so WE THE PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY RECEIVE WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY EARNED!!!

I thought she did not have a lot of knowledge on what social security finds to be disabled. when she was not sure of a case she leans toward denial.

I went to court for the second time ! My appeal got her decision revoked and lucky me had another court date! She couldn't make a decision because records that were faxed to her got lost!!! LOL ! So the info has been there because I collected and turned in the information! I was told by the professional person that says if u can work! He agreed I can't work! After 6 years you think degenerative disc disease would be approved ! No i have lost everything and now losing hope period ! I'm stuck in a room waiting and will not keep waiting I'm done! My life is ruined! Thanks for all the help!

This ALJ seemed to me as straightforward and fair. My lawyer bailed on me two days before hearing, and I decided to represent myself. She explained proceedings, and seemed to try to put me at ease. She struck me as impartial to past denial, and more than willing to weigh all evidence on both sides to make a fair and just judgment.I think to many people are looking at her approval/denial ratings, and jumping to conclusions.If you have the evidence, which you need in any case no matter who the ALJ is, she will render a just and fair decision.

She starts out as a denial, then basically challenges you to change her mind. There is nothing of merit about her.

She seemed to start in Atlanta as an uber-tough judge, but seems to have mellowed as of late. Fair but tough. Tends to ask a lot of clarifying questions during testimony.

To her credit, she demands superior preparation on the part of advocates, and will ultimately award a case if it's been expertly argued. Be ready to cite exhibits in support of a case theory, and be ready to defend any positions asserted. Be mindful that she tightly controls when and how representatives may rebut her on-the-record characterizations of what the evidence depicts. As a result of the friendly back and forth repartee that she enjoys, her hearings can run longer than average. While she can be difficult at times, I respect her reverence for process and her willingness to give a representative all the time he or she needs to make the best case.
