Honorable Judge John Rolph was incredibly kind during my hearing. In fact, he apologized for the process taking so long for me. He listened to me and my Attorney intently. I could tell he was already familiar about my case prior to my hearing . Judge Rolph mentioned specifics that he would only know if he had studied my case previously. I greatly appreciated that. He seems to be a man of great character and an excellent Judge!

I love love love this Judge he is polite, kind, understanding, not judgemental at all and very down to earth.definitely the kind of person I would want to go to his house for Christmas and spend time with his family seems like he's a very well-rounded family-oriented type of man. All American and all and great personality. I enjoyed my interview with him although I do not know what his decision will inevitably be in my case so far he's my favorite judge.

This judge is *******/********. He Discredited/ dismissed out all my doctors/info, credit his phony s.s. doctors who did nothing when they examine me, no X-Ray, etc how would they know what's wrong with me? He denied my case said that I have a medium rfc lifting 50 lbs can climb ladders when my doctor is telling me no prolonged standing, walking, climbing or heavy lifting and my orthopedic surgeon knee specialist doctor says i need both knees replaced/surgery and has ordered knee braces what's the scam with social security.

It's true, the Honorable John W. Rolph is very polite, respectful and courteous. He denied my case, but I don't blame him because he didn't receive all my medical evidence in time. Out of 22 doctor's, my Attorney left out 8 doctor's, 3 of which were critical. I waited 3 years and now I have to appeal to the Appeals Council, which will take up to 2 years for them to give a decision. One specialist lied to SSA. Judge Roplh gave "light weight" to my Orthepedic Surgeon report. Judge Rolph didn't know at the time of my Hearing that my Orthopedic Surgeon referred me to a Neurologist. This Neurologist stated that I needed neck surgery. This Neurologist referred me to another Neurologist. This 2nd Neurologist stated (after a nerve test) that my neck was causing shoulder, arm, and finger numbness. What I can't comprehend is that I have emails to my Attorney regarding all the Dr's left out of my Hearing. There's a lot more to this devastating story.😔

Lazy arrogant biased judge rolph, ss admin. received my document work restrictions from my treating physician because I called them and it was verified received over phone. which he totally neglected to include in his report that denied me which he incorrectly determined my medium rfc with cartilage loss in both knees. He didn't budge on my rfc, Just lazy because he's just passing my case on to cause more work backlog for ssa i received unfavorable decision because he was too lazy to include my teating physicians work restrictions letter that said no climbing ladders because I have more than 50% cartilage loss in both knees I experience excruciating 10 level knee pain when I try to climb ladders. His report puts me in harm's way saying I can climb ladders too dangerous, if i file appeal he will have to consider new evidence findings osteoarthritis of si joint plus he has to include my treating physicians work restrictions.

Today my social security and disability taxes were taken out of my part time check. They took $97.51 out ,I started laughing. Because this piece of **** JUDGE JOHN ROLPH DENIED my disability claim. So why the **** are they taking taxes out ,it's not like I can use it when I retire or if I'm disabled. I've been working since I was 18 years old and I have paid my taxes and can't get a ****** thing out of it. I HOPE YOU *** A SLOW AND PAINFUL ***** judge John ROLPH. You ****** ******

I'm an attorney who only practices Social Security disability law, and who routinely appears before judges from seven different ODARs (Portland, Eugene, Tacoma, Seattle, Spokane, Boise and Las Vegas - a total of 67 ALJs), and on occasion at virtually every ODAR across the country. I have seen it all, from wack-job judges who are truly insane -- pity anyone from Moreno Valley, CA or Billings, MT -- to judges on some sort of an agenda to deny (or approve!) as many people as possible. I can say without hesitation that Chief Judge Rolph is one of the most courteous, professional, thoughtful and genuinely compassionate judges that I have encountered. This is NOT the same thing as a high allowance rate. He only pays about 50/50, which means that he is denying a lot of cases who probably should be approved. However, I truly believe you get a fair shot with him. While he may not approve every claim, my experience is that he treats every claimant with respect as a human being. As bad as it is to have your claim denied, it is incredible how many judges insist on belittling people and treating them like crap. Judge Rolph never does this. The only time I have ever seen him lose patience, and even then it was slight, was when a claimant insisted on lying to him (and me) about current drug and alcohol use, was deceitful and very dishonest. Anyone who does that deserves a lot worse. Bottom line: I would love to win every one of my cases, but I would be more than happy if every one of my clients were assigned to Judge Rolph.
