Renita K Bivins seems like a nice judge when you first go in there but beware because she is a ******** *****. There is a reason her approval rating is so low. She would not let me bring a family member in for emotional support, and she barely asked me any questions so it seemed she had her mind made up against me before my time to plead my case had even came. I knew enough to know to start volunteering information that I wanted the SSA to know because she wasn't asking. She didn't care that my doctor has been seeing me for years and the testimonials of my family members who know me best. She twisted anything I actually did say into a reason why I am able to work. If you drive then you comprehend the law and can follow direction so beware of that and god forbid you feed yourself. If you are unlucky enough to get this judge then I recommend you moving to another district or starting over with a new case because she will not approve you. She should not be a judge at all. Don't let her polite exterior fool you she is a *****.

Judge Bivins was fair on my case I really was expecting a different outcome. She was very nice and funny, do not under estimate her, she will get the job done as long as you tell her the truth she will definitely cross examines you. I had a great outcome. Good luck to you all.

Judge Bivins seem to be fair, from previous comments I was expecting a totally different person, she asked question and listen to my response, was rather nice, VE seem to be a little confused from the judge question, my case, my problem was the vocational so called expert, not an expert at all, hopefully he didn't hurt my case :(

This woman does not understand the most basic aspects of disability law. Her 10% approval rate is so far outside the national bell curve that SSA needs to investigate why she is so far outside the national average - to be approving no more than 10% of cases assigned to her when the national average for approvals is a bit over 50% should make it clear that something is terribly wrong with the way this woman adjudicates cases. Recently, she demanded that a dead claimant (died in 2014 and it took SSA until March 2016 to hold the hearing) amend his alleged onset date to the following year simply because the claimant had earned SGA prior to his alleged onset date! She seems to be under the impression that if a person earns more than the SGA threshold amount in a given year then that person cannot be found disabled at any time in that year! It is inexcusable that SSA would allow someone who lacks understanding of one of the most fundamental aspects of disability law to work as a judge and pay them over $160K a year to improperly deny meritorious cases up to 90% of the time. If your case is assigned to this judge, you need to move into another jurisdiction so you can transfer your file out from under this judge before your hearing takes place.

I understand that in this day and time there is abuse to the system. I'm all for fairness and people not abusing the system. But Judge Bivins is ALL ABOUT the numbers so she can look good. She is the most uncompassionate person. She should take time to dive into people's lives and situations because she wants to deny on anything even if you can wash your own hair. She has no idea about mental concerns when a person has worked their whole life and they had a severe traumatic event happen to them that has left them barely surviving. I've been seen by the same doctor since my tragedy everything documented but Judge Bivins doesn't care that she is dealing with people's lives that are really in need and can ruin their life forever.

Judge Renita K Bivins Is very investigative and comprehensive. She is fair if the evidence and testimony match. She is very concerned about doing her job by the book.

Judge Bivins is not a fair Judge, she picks one line out of the full medical report from 13 doctors that says you are disabled and denies your case saying that there has to be a job that you are able to do out there that will allow to to take breaks every thirty minutes to lay down for thirty minutes. I'm sorry but common sense says that no employer is going to allow you to do that. For a Judge , she's the dumbest i have ever seen and needs to be replaced instead of our tax dollars paying her , ( to obliviously lay down when ever she wants)

Buckle your seatbelts for this one had court with Judge Bivins today very thourough and she goes by her script she will try to find the most easiest job for you to prove her case against even having a listing that should automatically qualify you for disability. She will cross examine you like a prosecutor so good luck and she is new to Covington Ga
