Absolute joke! Kelly completely disregarded EVERYTHING my doctors, social security doctor and medical records say. Her mind was already made up before I entered the room. Very bitter woman that thinks she can ‘save’ social security by rejecting such a high %. How does this cold hearted ***** sleep at night? I was a witness for a friend of mine 6 years ago in Spokane. Kelly was as nice as pie. She made small talk, friendly and approved my friends disability on minimal grounds. Here I am...6 years later filing for my own disability and Kelly acts like money comes directly out of her pocket! Insulted me, belittled me, degraded me causing me MORE emotional harm. My service dog didn’t even like her!!! At all costs...request a different ALJ judge! The ***** himself giving me an enema with a hot poker would have gone better.

About the only suggestion I have for any one in Montana applying for disability, move and hope 60 minutes does a story on this area. Kelley was run out of West Virginia, 7% approval now up to 20%, don't go to your hearing with her or Kiljoy, you have no chance. I bet they get a bonus for most denials.

AlJ Kelley was quick to point out that I had cannabis in my system for the record. However, she failed to report that it was approved By the VA Doctor and Medical Marijuana card is on file. Dr. even states that he recommends eating cannabis verse smoking it. Funny how they leave certain things out to make people think you're abusing the system. In all reality the ALJ's are the ones abusing their power by not being honest about reviewing your claim in full.

Here goes another appeal. AlJ Kelley adopted and copied AlJ Kilroy's conclusion word for word and denied case. I guess she didn't take time to review the 9th Circuit Supreme Court decision stating that AlJ Kilroy errored in most of his conclusion. This is so wrong! What a waist of time for everyone. I guess they call this monopoly game job security. People's lives really don't matter.

Well folks, you're not alone. I've been filing since 2012. Denied by ALJ Kilroy. Took it to 9th Circuit Court. Had court with AlJ Kelley while waiting on 9th Circuit decision. 9th Circuit judge said ALJ Kilroy made many errors. Case was reversed and remanded. She denied my case seeing I can have a retrial based on his errors. Here goes six years now. The system is very corrupt.

If you get your notice for a hearing, and this judge is listed, don't go, protest, check whatever laws are on the books, you could have terminal cancer, and she would think you could still work the remaining 6 months of your life. At 18%, that basically means no one wins, surprisingly, when this judge was in West Virginia she approved 7%.

What does this judge have to do to lose her job? This is a clear case of someone laughing all the way to the bank. This is amazing.

Kelley is the worst woman ive ever had the displeasure of meeting. I was scheduled a hearing October 27th, she postponed 2 days before my hearing, 8 months later I finally got my case heard, wich by then I waited 2 years 8 months. she gave us ( by us I mean my lawyer and I ) 50 minutes to present our case, of those 50 minutes she took up most of it herself. by the time we tried to present my case she wouldn't listen to my lawyer she kept cutting him off!! he finally got up to leave and she yelled at him and told him to sit down. even the v.o.c rep wouldn't look up not even once. it was the most horrible excperence ive ever been in. my lawyer said out of the thousands of cases hes done mine was best to receive disability. he said I should consider moving out of state because I had no chance with her. my advice to anyone that gets her as a judge don't even waste your time you will lose. someone should have her investigated and removed from the bench. what a poor exscuse for a judge and a woman.....

The beat goes on, and she keeps her job. Doesn't anybody care? You gotta be kidding me.

How could one judge approve 78%, and this judge 22%?

If you ever get judge Kelley, you may as well start your appeals council report, this judge is by far the worst in the United States. The sad thing about it, nobody seems to care. My advice to anyone, before you apply for social security disability, move to another state, you will not win in Montana. She has to be writing her decisions before the hearing. What happened in Queens, New York has to be coming to Montana, what's going on here is too obvious. Judge Kelley is a hired gun from West Virginia, her approval rating there was a whopping 7%, and she keeps her job, only in America.

This judge is getting worse, next to Alaska, you have no chance to win in Montana. Who's watching these judges, no wonder West Virginia told Kelley to please leave.

Did anyone else have this experience with this judge, she relies strictly on people who never examine you, and discounts doctors who have seen you for years, even social security doctors who perform CE exams. This is abuse of power.

She seems to go through the file looking for anything negative that she can use to deny the case. Good judges give Claimants a fair opportunity. She seems to be completely consumed by getting the hearing over with and finding a way to deny the case. I also think she largely writes her decisions ahead of time. One has to wonder why even have hearings with that type of approach.

I have a strange feeling she starts writing her denial before the hearing. It's funny, if she approved 83% of her cases, there would be red flags going off everywhere, she's so far the national average it's amazing. I can't overemphasize the need to stand up like the Queens, New York victims.

I have to agree that her numbers and metrics do indeed merit an investigation from the national office.

This hack of a judge has a 71% denial rate....seriously? She denies people based on her hefty prejudices. This woman should be disbarred and thrown to the wolves. Shame on her for acting the way she does! She doesn't deserve to do this job, denying genuinely disabled people for her sick pleasure!
