i went before the judge in 2011, what i can say about judge Finnie is that he is not an easy judge to go before, but he is a fair judge, i was scared to death because he is so firm but i believe he must be a very good poker player because you cannot look into his eyes and fuguire what he is really thinking.

I had my review yesterday and he was very thorough and explained everything in details and is of a calm natured demeanor and really put me at ease during the hearing, after I've been appealing time and again for having anxiety and a stroke, which has kept me from working for almost two years. My mother and I were in his chambers for about 30 minutes before he approved my disability after asking very detailed questions of us and really paying attention to the many numerous medical records I've submitted over the last year and a half. If I could give anybody else advice on how to file properly, it's get all your medical records from every source you can and mail them in for review by Social Security.

He has kept my case tied up in editing for 8 months so far. You reached a descision already. You need to understand people need help to live sometimes if they cant work. Purposely holding up a case is very rude.

This judge is the worst person to ever decide people's future. My father has had cancer for 3 years, had a tracheotomy surgery, and can barely talk speak without being in excruciating pain. He was in the ICU for 3 months straight and is unable to work. He's been fighting with this judge for 3 years now and he barely ever contacts him back. He only approves 10% of applicants. He is a horrible judge!
