ALJ Weiss can be hard to read at times but, in general, he grants the case. He takes quite a while to issue a decision and although some of his denials are questionable, he actually is one of the best ALJs in NY based upon the number of his favorable decisions. As a lawyer, I am happy when I see my case is assigned to ALJ Weiss.

Allegedly feels that the disability attorneys who appear in front of him are terrible lawyers. Yet as a Judge, he recently showed up at his hearing office at 9am, had hearings on his calendar beginning at 8am, and apparently had no idea he even had hearings. How can a federal judge not know he has hearings when he arrives at court? These hearings are potentially the most important proceedings in a claimant's life and he shows up late and even worse, unprepared.

Beyond arrogant. Could care less about adjudicating a claimant's case and spends more time delaying decisions and holding unnecessary supplemental hearings. The guy failed as a commissioner of the ny workers comp board and ran off to be a disability judge because it was an easier gig. Completely anti-attorney. Make sure you get every single thing on the record and object early and often with this guy.

Generally not a fair judge. He can sometimes sit on post hearing decision for 1 year. Does a lot of post hearing development. He often writes scare tactics letters to doctors, implying that they could be in some sort of trouble by writing a favorable RFC. He also questions, the doctors about fees they may have received for writing their report.
