As an attorney representative, I endorse Judge Ken Ball as a fair, respectful and knowledgeable ALJ. During the course of the hearing he treats the claimant with respect and dignity and is very patient to hear all pertinent evidence in adjudicating the claim.

I went before judge Ball and in the past eight years has been a rollercoaster ride with social security. I just couldn't understand why they are fighting me I had breast cancer along with bad doctors and surgeon's and hard to get a job with medical. Judge Ball is the only Judge that was fair and listened to my story and then I listened to him and his questions and I found he spent time to explain my case to me and no other judge ever did this. I have a hard time understanding legal and reading with seventh grade education and I found judge Ball to be fair and honest with me. As one human to another that's all we can ask for in life just be fair. Even if I am right or wrong. Thank you for your time to read.

I have appeared before about 150 ALJs in 30 years of practice. He is among the bottom 10 percent.

This is a terrible judge. He will not believe your testimony of disability, even when you have extensive medical records and proof that even working part-time is too much to handle. I would not give him even one star. He has no understanding of the struggles of a person with chronic medical conditions that taxes your energy and makes you tired even after modest activity. I feel sorry for those that have to appear in front of this person.
