I had been before to a hearing several years ago and it was extremely nerve wracking. I went into this hearing having refiled several years after my last denial as I did as the judge recommended and was unable to successfully work in 2 different types of work environments. I was extremely nervous going into my hearing this time to the point of physically shaking but judge Watson was very nice and calming in the way he conducted the hearing and asking and listening to me and my attorney. He definitely has my respect and although I have just had my hearing before him I feel he will make the right choice.

Had my hearing before Judge Watson 8/14/19. Everything said here holds true to my experience before him. He was very prepared familiar with my file. Very respectful to everyone and listened. He was very patient when I lost my composure and cried. For me courtrooms always sound scary but he is calm natured and it helped me be more at ease. I too don't know his decision yet but I left feeling he heard me and my attorney and when he said he would review everything and make a decision I really got the sense he was wise and fair. What more could anyone ask for in a disability judge?

Very kind judge -- took away all of the fear because of his understanding, questions, and time to speak. I went without an attorney and it seemed to go well. I really felt like he "heard me." I still have not received the results -- but feel sure that he will do what is "right." Thank you Judge Watson.

I have not received my decision yet but I have to say that Judge Watson maybe the most compassionate judge that I have ever met . He is really engaged during testimony and he listens to every word . If u are lucky to get this judge I would say your chances are probably 50/50 . He has a poker face so u can't tell one way or the other .

I had my court date on 11-6-2014. My attorney and I were well prepared. My doctors record well documented everything we said impaired me mentally and physically. I have not received the judgement at this time. ILJ Carl B Watson was very nice and he had a tremendous amount of respect for my attorney and I. He was well prepared and already had a lot knowledge about me and my disabilities. He deserves all the respect from anyone who goes before him. Thanks Judge Carl B Watson.

There couldn't be a nicer, understanding, and respectful judge in all of the SS judges. He looked at all of my papers, asked questions, allowed me to explain and in the end wished me the best of luck. If you get him and you are disabled...he will judge you fairly

I had my hearing in front of this judge on 3-7-2013. I was very nervous going in with not knowing what to expect. I read the reviews on this site and was really scared of going in for my hearing. But I have to say that this judge is very respectful. Although I do not know the decision made on my case, I do not think that there is a better judge that you could want. He was very nice, respectful, prepared, and listened to everything my attorney and I had to say.
