I have not had the pleasure of meeting this Judge yet. I just recently found out he has been assigned to my disability claim. From what I've read above, he seems to be a man after God's own heart. I Pray that he is equally fair to me if we should have to have a hearing. I have been fighting for the past 3 years and losing hope fast.God knows the pains I suffer on a daily basis from the time I awaken until the time I try to go to sleep. I'm not asking for a handout, I'm asking for what I've earned and paid into social security to aid in my attempting to live a normal life again. It's getting harder as the days go by to keep my head above water. I'm waiting on either an OTR decision or a Hearing. I put either in God's hands, He knows what I'm going through. I'll trust whatever decision Judge Lessis makes concerning me and my many conditions.

Had a hearing with him last week. Really a fine ALJ. All about the business at hand, yet down-to-earth, reasonable, interested in knowing the facts, interested also in making the claimant as comfortable as possible with the proceedings. Very unassuming yet he certainly gained my respect quickly by how he handled the hearing. He's probably ruling favorably for my client, but even if he ruled unfavorably, I'd still feel that he gave us fair and thorough consideration.
