Judge Thomas Walters was very kind and compassionate towards me and my disability. I have been trying since 1999, with a lawyer every time and every time i get no good news. I got my approval letter today and nearly cried when i saw that he was on my side.

Awesome Judge. He is fair, kind, compassionate and really understands people. He allowed me to elaborate on the struggles I am going through. We need more people like him in judicial positions.

I had this judge in 1996 i received a favorable decision from him. He was very pleasent and polite. He understood that the pain i had was present 5 days out of 7. We laughed and talked about how being able to receive ssdi helps to releive the stress on a family. Wish he was back on the bench in detroit. I went back to work in 2003 after my husband abandon me and our children. I worked until 2010 and was unable to take the pain. so now i have been fighting since 2011 and have been denied over and over again.

I appeared before this judge September 30,2013 he was polite and attentive wasn't rude at all. He seems like a very fair judge and even though it's been over 60 days I'm still waiting on my decision. I hope and pray that he decided in my favor I haven't worked in 4 years due to my severe condition.
