This judge sees past BS and knew the truth. He was respectful and compassionate. I was able to be upfront and honest. He granted my disability immediately at my hearing. He is a decent judge and man.

This **** was removed from handling any combat vets cases because he rules against them. This guy tried to throe up in my face that he was a former marine officer so he's familiar with veterans. He was a snarky piece of ****. I knew I was going to be denied after I got tired of him talking down to me so I asked him if he was a combat veteran and if he'd ever actually led troops in combat? I thought he was going to have a stroke and to be honest I hope this ******* has a major medical issue that leaves him in a vegative state. I would love to spit in his disrespectful face and then **** him for being a liberal ******* hillary clinton supporter. He has a 88% denial rate for veterans and has since been relieved of hearing any veterans cases.

Beware! this Judge will twist your words, and dissaprove of everything you say, just to get his way and to accomidate his unfavorable decision! He hates peopole who smoke, or drink and is very paranoid when speaking about medication use. This Judge is worse then all of the rest, he's a very bad man!
