I recently appeared before the Honorable Judge Wiedemann. I was very tense and nervous, and she made me very comfortable and at ease. She was very thorough and concise and never at one point was I confused or did I feel out of place. Her demeanor was mother-like and she paid all her attention to me in a very professional way as well. I was very lucky to have gotten her as my judge regardless of the decision rendered.

My clients were in El Paso ODAR and ALJ did hearings via video. I had heard horror stories about bad tempers of some LA ALJs, so I was pretty nervous, but I was pleasantly surprised. ALJ Wiedemann is very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. She really goes out of her way to put nervous claimants and attys at ease, and I have no doubt that she will render a fair, expeditious decision in my clients' cases.

Very professional. Wish more of the ALJs I see when representing clients were like her--businesslike, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly in a professional way. She made sure the client knew what was going on, made him the focal point of the whole process. Whether she rules in our favor or not, I believe her decision will be honest and that she made certain to get all the information necessary during the hearing.
