I wholeheartedly concur with the comments made above- particularly re not suffering fools lightly. Bill Vest was a superb Navy trial judge who had the courage of his convictions. This character trait has carried over to his work as an SSA ALJ over the past two decades. A well-prepared summary of evidence/case brief is critical. he does actually read amendments to your brief and can think "on the the fly" quite well. You will be hard-pressed to find a better ALJ in this area of the country.

My most respected ALJ; when he Denies a case I usually agree with him!!!and if I do not, he will graciously hear your written expression of disagreement and ACTUALLY will Hear more evidence on those issues. Has Revised his Decisions with evidence to specific issues. Have NEVER had an Appeals Council Reversal or Remand. Be certain to write a well documented Brief.Such a courteous and Procedurally correct ALJ. Does NOT suffer fools lightly. If you only prepare for a case by reading the case file while waiting for the Hearing on hearing day, your Decision will reflect that preparation..GUARANTEED!
