I have done disability battle with this judge for 7 straight years now. I was denied by her in 2011. I appealed and won the appeal by being remanded back in front of in 2014. She denied me again in 2014 and I appealed again and won my appeal. But on a second remand you are assigned to a different judge. I know it is proper to respect a judfes decision but in both of her written decisions her denial bordered on a personal attack. All this and I can't even hardly walk. This judge does not follow the law or pay much attention to medical evidence. I feel sorry for anyone who has to go in front of her. Fortunately her denials are often successfully appealed so don't lose hope.

I was actually terrified when I heard I had this judge. I had read all the negative comments and it made me think I was royally screwed. However, that was not the case. It took eight months but she approved my full disability with back pay! Actually she did it just in time for Christmas. So my new year will definitely be looking up. Thank you so much Judge Fitzgerald!

Although it took six months from my hearing for a decision, ODAR Judge Kelly Fitzgerald was very thorough, which one should expect for the job done right. I appreciate this. In the courtroom Judge Fitzgerald and staff showed courtesy which eased my fears greatly. All the staff including the security guards were a joy to be around on a very stressful day. Thank You and God Bless.

This judge will smile to your face and you the back as soon she denies you. she has the highest rejection rate out of all the judges and is 10% over the national average HOW CAN THIS BE. In my rejection letter she attacked my character instead of taking the word of an accredited Univesity doctor.

There has got to be a way to get rid of her. She is one of the rudest, corrupt judges I have ever met. She must get kickbacks for every case she denies. I'd love to see her have to go through the process.

Does it usually take 6 months or better to get the judges answer to wether the person is approved or not? I was told 4 to 6 weeks for an answer. I'm just curious as I don't know how these things go. This is all new to me.
