No stars.... Judge Murray made his decision for my case which was UNFAVORABLE based on HIS observation. All the medical evidence was there , but just like the other two times I was denied before appealing it to a judge, Social Security puts their opinions and omits or adds information, along with his OBSERVATIONS so you are guaranteed to lose, whether or not if you have a lawyer, which I did. Alot of good it did if this Judge abuses his power and makes decisions based on OBSERVATIONS. One example in my decision was I looked well groomed , so with that OBSERVATION, that made it look like I was able to care for myself. Really? So be aware, go rip your clothes up, put dirt all over your face, your toes sticking out of your shoes, three canes and you have a much higher chance of approval because you don’t look groomed, based on HIS OBSERVATIONS!! There were other comments in my denial that are an observation based on what he saw at the hearing. I don’t put it past that these S.S clerks have pre-signed forms from these judges and twist and turn the info so you get screwed over and LOSE! If I could have continued to work , why would I have foreclosed on my house and filed bankruptcy! Because I couldn’t work!! I am not some bum trying to abuse the system. Now, I don’t know what I am going to do now. File the appeal? Another appeal? For what? So it goes to another person in the main S.S office to be denied, again. The system is very flawed... And the vocational “expert” ... there are some GREAT jobs out there that they say you can do and basically should have no problem finding and making a living off of. Ridiculous!! If that’s the case go tell me where the jobs are LOCALLY!! , not NATIONWIDE! I don’t care what amount of jobs are available NATIONWIDE if they aren’t available locally, and please tell me what they pay. No way you can make a living off the jobs THEY say are available and that THEY say you could do..But they are experts, what do i know.......

CHARLES MURRAY WAS VERY UNFAIR IN MY CASE. HE WOULD ASK ME A QUESTION AND THEN CUT ME OFF. MURRAY HAD A HORRIBLE ATTITUDE TOWARDS ME AND SMIRKED HIS LIPS UP AS IF HE KNOWS EVERYTHING! I HAVE ALL OF THE EVIDENCE NEEDED THAT SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN ME APPROVED FOR DISABILITY BUT MURRAY DIDN'T GO BY THE EVIDENCE. MURRAY MADE HIS "UNFAVORABLE DECISION" FROM HIS PATHETIC ATTITUDE. I WOULDN'T GIVE MURRAY 1 STAR BECAUSE HE DOESN'T DESERVE IT. A HORRIBLE JUDGE, A HORRIBLE PERSON AND I KNOW WHAT HE DID TO ME WAS WRONG, GOD KNOWS AS WELL. MURRAY SAW ALL OF THE EVIDENCE AND STILL DENIED ME. I'VE TALKED WITH SEVERAL ATTORNEYS AND THEY EACH SAID THAT MURRAY WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE HIS DECISION BASED ON THE EVIDENCE AND THAT MURRAY CLEARLY WAS UNPROFESSIONAL, ABUSED HIS POWER AND SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TO BE A JUDGE SINCE HE IS LETTING HIS PATHETIC ATTITUDE MAKE HIS DECISIONS FOR HIM INSTEAD OF BEING PROFESSIONAL AND JUDGING PEOPLE BY THE EVIDENCE. I TOTALLY AGREED WITH THE ATTORNEYS. BEWARE OF CHARLES MURRAY EVERYONE AND JUST KNOW THAT IF HE SMIRKS UP HIS LIPS OR RUDELY CUTS YOU OFF, YOU'RE DENIED! I HAVE SEVERE PTSD, SEVERE PANIC DISORDER, ANXIETY DISORDER, OCD, SEVERE DEPRESSION AND DISSOCIATION. ALSO, DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE AND AN L5 SLIPPED DISC. EVEN THE STATES PSYCHIATRIST DIAGNOSED ME WITH ALL OF THESE DIAGNOSES BUT NASTY MURRAY ABUSED HIS POWER AND POSITION TO REJECT ME FROM ASSISTANCE FROM THE STATE. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT MURRAY LOSES HIS JOB AND EVERYTHING HE OWNS!! I'VE LOST SEVERAL JOBS BECAUSE OF MY PROBLEMS AND I'VE LOST EVERYTHING I OWNED! MURRAY HAS HELPED DESTROY MY LIFE AND I HOPE THAT THIS HORRIBLE, SO CALLED JUDGE LOSES EVERYTHING HE OWNS!

Judge S Charles Murray already had his mind made up before he held my hearing. I wasdenied by this Judge. Judge Murray is supposed to look at the evidence in my case and make a decision but instead, he acted as a doctor and a psychiatrist himself. I have 6 diagnosis from 2 psychiatrists, one being the states psychiatrist. I have severe PTSD, anxiety, severe panic attacks, depression, ocd and dissociation. This judge wasn't fair at all and kept cutting me off when i spoke about my problems. I didn't like how he smurked his lips up either. I've lost numerous jobs because of my problems. I have many issues daily as well but this judge said he believes I'm making all of this up. I sure wish that Murray could stay here with me for a few days to see for himself. If he did, he would immediately change his verdict and attitude. I don't appreciate the unfairness of this judege nor do i appreciate his attitude. Murray gets 1 star from me because a half of a star option isn't available.

The whole process was intimidating at first, but he soon made me feel very comfortable. I felt like he cold sympathize with me. Whether I approved or not, I don't know, but he was nice.

I really appriciated that he asked my daughter(who I am filing for) to leave before we talked about her condition. It's really hard to make your kids feel as "normal" as possible then turn around and let her hear about how she will never be "normal". The judge we had before made her stay in the room.

Seems to start every hearing with, "Now I'm a federal judge. Don't lie to me, now. Can you be truthful?" Just be prepared for it.

Gentlemanly. Seems to have studied the file beforehand, and has more than an inkling of how to proceed to a decision.
