Worst Judge Ever......She more or less so called me a liar and said the only reason I stopped seeing my Doctor was because he wouldn't prescribe me narcotics which is a TOTAL lie....I started seeing my doc in 2012 and that's when she said I dropped him was in 2012 even my lawyer cant stand her cause he warned me about her before I had to go in front of her........Lets just say I would have honestly rather went in front of Judge Judy

Before we even went on the record I was reprimanded like a child for trying to eat a mint. My medication and condition makes my mouth dry! It seemed like she had me pegged as a liar before i even opened my mouth. She has some sort superiority complex. Her attitude was standoffish and accusatory! I told the truth for EVERY question she asked me and i am pretty sure i will penalized for it. i KNOW i am sick. My doctors KNOW i am sick. This woman has NO RIGHT to sit there and act like she has any idea what being sick and in pain is like let alone hold other people's lives in her hands. I was fighting tears the whole hearing but was afraid of letting even one tear fall in front of this heartless woman! What kind of person, law aside, treats people that way?!!

Just wanted her know my brother took his life last month. Maybe she should understand what pain can do to someone before she treats them like ****. He came out of her hearing crying and upset do to her behavior towards him He was never able to get over it. Better understand people before you judge all people the same. Sincerely, I hope you live a lonely life like our family has to.

Worst judge hands down anywhere in any court,not just social security.Is the most confrontational ,ill-manner person you will ever meet.Asks stupid irrelevant questions and has no empathy towards anyone,regardless of how sad their situation may be.Yelled at a claimant who had an operated brain tumor because she struggled to express herself concisely enough.Has no regards to any standards of decency or civility.

To say you tried and worked in front of this judge she will chew your *** out. Told her i tried to work and it didn`t go good. She told me if i thought i was disabled why did i try to work ? Feeling of self worth and seeing if i could. She shouldn`t be on bench at all something is wrong with her. I`m no expert but i have seen people that are not stable and she is on top of the list. I understand everyone coming in front of her does not qualify for benefits, but she takes her hearing to a whole another level. I feel sorry for anyone that has to go in front of this person. You can be good at your job but her disrespecting of people who go in front of her is not called for. She had me in tears and chewed up my lawyer and made her look bad. I think about ending my life everyday cause of what i go threw and that day almost pushed me over the edge.But i believe life will get better in time and pray every night for happiness and just having one good day a week helps me make it thru the week. I will never say a prayer for this women she needs to step down and go home to kick her dog. Sorry for post but i had to vent some how. Good luck for anyone who goes in front of this mean person.

She is quite possibly the worst judge in the country. She has no heart and no soul. The administration and everyone affiliated should be embarrassed that so many have been denied without having a full and fair hearing. I wonder how many who would normally be found disabled in front of most average judges have died as a result of her intentional disregard for the law.

The Honorable Judge Pappenfus presided over my case over a year ago. While I did not enter into the hearing with any expectations of the Judge being amiable, neither did I expect the disdain in which I was treated. But despite leaving the hearing near tears, I left choosing to believe that she was not a pernicious person at heart, but that she might possibly be having such a serious cause of concern in her private life so that her attentions might have been elsewhere. And as such, I earnestly prayed for her and her family. And while she did not award a favourable decision (and based in part on her complete and utter lack of regard to my physicians statements, the Federal Courts have since ruled to remand my case back to the ALJ for review, and in a different city this time), I continue to keep her in my thoughts and prayers. Regardless of all that I’ve read, I still refuse to believe that she is a bad person. And for those who have suffered her disapproval and your cases end up getting remanded, look on the bright side...your next ALJ can't be any worse. :)

I have been very close to walking out of the hearing office with her due to her abusive and ignorant behavior. I personally know of two or three reps who actually did.

This judge is the worst judge I have ever appeared before including State and Federal courts. I have represented claimants in over 1,000 hearings from the west coast to the east coast and she is hands down the worst judge I have ever had the unfortunate privilege to have appeared before. She is rude, mean, crude, abusive, insensitive, and worst of all ignorant as to the applicable laws, rules and regulations. It is impossible to prepare your client to appear before this ALJ because she treats the attorneys just as horribly as the claimants. Multiple complaints have been filed with Creve Coeur ODAR, Social Security and the Chief Judge all to no avail. She requests claimants obtain information that is not relevant to their case and constantly continues hearings to obtain information that does not exist for a particular claim all to just deny the case in the end. DO NOT give up on your good claim just move closer to downtown St. Louis to get out of the Creve Coeur jurisdiction OR to another state.

Totally agree. She is the worst ALJ in the state and among the worst in the country. Unfortunately, despite her obvious bias she will continue to prey on the weak and disabled. SSA is only interested in punishing the ALJ's who they believe are paying too many claims.

Have been doing hearings over 20 years. This is the only judge I will post on. This judge does not get the fundamental nature of a trial is to be heard by an impartial adjudicator. Perhaps its time Social Security hires judges the same way the rest of the country des through legitimate appointments or elections. In all of my years of practice this is the only judge I would say should be removed from the bench

I don`t mind changing onset date doesn`t matter one difference to me. I have lost are losing my house anyway cause of backlog of cases. I`m upset i had to loose everything including 401k,company stock, etc to keep roof over my child's head.

Well she made me feel like a dirt bag with no compassion at all. For the fact its not a perfect world i tried to work and get questioned for it. I dont want to be on disability my whole life, i want to get better.I cant provide a good life for my daughter on disability. I made some bad choices in my life when younger that still haunt me. But i have always been a good worker with solid working history. Looks like i will lose my case and this is my gut feeling. I always was told to be polite growing up. She made me feel like i was ignorant. I grew up in a very abusive childhood of verbal assaults. This was like going back in time all over again.

Judge: J. Pappenfus

Another bias ALJ who is abusive. She doesn't pay claims unless its amended onset the day of the hearing. She does get remanded frequently because she has total disregard for the applicable law

I`m really scarred to see this judge cause of her record. I world has been turned inside out since my conditions don`t get any better. Looking at me one would think yes he can work but pain never goes away. There are days when i say get off my butt and work then doing just yard work my body knots up and i`m down for days on end. Cant afford proper doctors and in the time it has cost me my retirement and losing home right now. Dealing with intense pain is one thing but over time it changes one cause there is nothing that can be done. I know i will be denied and homeless, i see it coming. Being under 50 hurts me to so no options left. I`m just so tired of not being able to afford health care and the life i have been in for the last three years have been the worst i have ever had in my life.I tried to work and now it seems to hurt my case coming up. Its not fair i have been a caretaker twice in my life before the age of 45. Once my wife with ALS and three years ago with my mother with Cancer. A **** shame people abuse the system so my case will be that much harder. Know i find out i have this judge and she has a disapprovel rate this high. Doesn`t get much better than this.Why couldn`t i of died instead of my wife and mother it would of been a lot easier on everyone
