I am thankful for the opportunity to plead my case in front of this Judge. He was kind and considerate, asking all the relevant questions. Whatever he decides, I truly am grateful. Yes or no...Praise the Lord!

This Judge makes the ODAR judicial system look like the most corrupt system in the United States! He's arrogant, rude, and has been allowed to treat people like crap for way to long! How dare he tell my sister that because of her nursing degree it enabled her to convince doctors to write what she needed to support her disability! She's on oxygen 24/7, can barely walk, has had numerous neck and back surgeries among other ailments. This man should be removed from his position! I really do not understand how this guy continues to be allowed to up hold laws,and statues, then rule on them when clearly he's not following the code of ethics for which he took his oath on?

Rude, disrespectful, and biased. He totally disregarded 12 years of v.a. mental health records. I suffer from ptsd, severe depression and anxiety just to name a few. Vocational expert stated" considering all of my disabilities, the odds of finding an employer willing to hire me would be around 15%. ". He denied my claim.

This judge is extremely rude and unprofessional. Because I couldn't remember the time frame when I lost a bunch of weight he said I was unreliable and not credible. He also said since I was not credible than my doctor wasn't either. I take a lot of medication and memory loss is I e of the side effects. My lawyer could not believe I was denied with all of my medical problems. Waiting now for Virginia to make a decision on my case and it has been 13 months.a

I was a nervous wreck and hardly able to speak, I have PTSD and BPD along with many physical ailments (i.e. Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome, Osteo-Arthritis, Colitis, Migraines). Despite the fact that I could barely speak, and was so nervous, he was extremely RUDE and as it turns out, incredibly BIASED. Even after numerous appeals, this man's negative opinions about my "credibility" still carry a lot of weight. For some of us, Disability is a life and death situation.

He was negative and extremely rude. My attorney was surprised that he denied my case even after he appealed. I am currently waiting for the panel in West Virginia to make a decision and then it goes right back to the same judge. How does this make sense? His denial rate goes up each year!

No Confidence in this ALJ. Before even looking at my old case file to begin Correcting the CLEAR & UNMISTAKABLE "ERRORS" he claimed that he needed my VA records, which are too numerous for even a team of book worms to digest. The SSA determined disability as far back as 1991, but the ALJ Failed to Follow Established Law & on remand, refused to comply with the directive: REMOVE the mechanical grid. Instead, the previous ALJ attempted to REINFORCE the grid using a deceptive practice (MMPI) contrary to published experts who report this MMPI is "INAPPROPRIATE" for people suffering with non-exertional impairments. I am a 100% "Service-Connected" DISABLED American veteran. I haven't been gainfully employed since being honorable discharged from the military July 2, 1987, and the SSA records clearly show this. For two DECADES I have repeatedly asked for a FAIR & IMPARTIAL & OBJECTIVE Decision Review of my old case to Correct the CLEAR & UNMISTAKABLE ERRORS. Why is this Fully Disabled vet being denied ssdi benefits ? Carolyn Colvin is lip syncing an old worn out tune when promising EXPEDITED PROCESSING or "FAST_TRACKING of SSDI Benefits to Fully Disabled Vets (see Veterans Today article 19 Mar 2014 Top Ten Stories no. 7 & comment by Scott Helmus) The SSA is INCONSISTENT, Overly Adversarial & abusive to US Disabled veterans.
