Last week my 10yr old child had a hearing with The Honorable Judge Northington and all I can say is NEVER in my life have I encountered a Judge that made you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I have worked as a caseworker for the Department of Children and Families (child protection unit). I have been in a courtroom more times than I can count to testify on behalf of abused and neglected children. From the moment we walked into the door of the hearing office we were greeted with kindness by the security guard who was also very funny, then the secretary who was so kind and helpful, to the Judge and her assistant that set such an atmosphere that it didn't feel like you were in a courtroom but more like a friendly meeting. Judge Northington listened to everything I had to say about my son from his daily life at home, at school, his doctors diagnoses, his treatment, his medical records and the reasons why I think he needs to stay on his SSI benefits. She never made the hearing feel rushed or anything like that instead she took her time and asked me questions, she asked my son questions, she understood that there was going to be more testing, probably medication, more medical records, and more evidence regarding his condition. Although we have not received a decision about his case yet I am confident that whatever she decides it will be a fair decision.

I had the pleasure of being before Judge Northington on several cases. She was patient, kind, compassionate, empathetic and so on. She never cut a claimant off. She appeared genuinely concerned about knowing person and what it was like for them on a daily basis. She took onto consideration all medical records she had and made sure to note additional records that should be obtained to corroborate claimants' history and condition. She particularly seemed very empathic to those with depression, and could completely sympathize because of the vicious cycle of no treatment because no insurance, no insurance because waiting for 2 years for SS hearing to get insurance to get medicine and treatment. She appears to truly care. She is respectful to everyone in her courtroom.

I went before Judge Northington last week. I had so much anxiety built up I thought I would pop. How do you get someone to understand how much pain you are in every day? That is all I could think about and of course rejection again. To my suprise Judge Northington had carefully read my file and knew exactly how much pain I was in. I feel she is a very fair Judge I have so much respect for her. Judge Northington didn't treat me like I was a nobody she was kind and listened to everything I had to say.

My Title II SSDI case went before Judge Northington last week after a two year wait. I had made every effort to insure the the court had all medical records and letters from my treating physicians, but I have to admit that I went into the hearing with more than a mild amount of anxiety. Denial or dismissal would mean much more than continued appeals for me and my family; we would be homeless with nowhere left to turn. Judge Northington was well-versed on my case, kind, compassionate, and seemed generally concerned about my health and well-being. After verifying some of the facts in my case and listening to the abbreviated findings of the VE she approved my claim. After a long and arduous journey through this process I've come to the conclusion that if your claim is legitimate and you present the facts in a coherent way, it all comes down to the compassion (or lack thereof)of a single individual. May you all be blessed with a hearing before someone with a kind heart and empathetic soul, as I was.
