My first encounter with Judge Labrousse, (my anxiety got the best of me) But she's a pleasant person. She is detailed, thorough in her hearings and patient with her clients. She gets straight to the point.

I found Judge Wendy Hunn to be both fair and equitable during my hearing and in her dealings with my attorney and the SS staff. Also, using an attorney was definitely beneficial for my case.

This Judge must Apperntly be on some kind of power trip. She should be investigated. I wonder how she like being threw the living hell I have. With diabetes and severe neuropathy, edema, liver function issues,crippling anxiety so bad I have a bald spot on my head from scalp picking, ptsd from a victim of being brainwashed by a phycotic ex boyfriend, ADHD for years, terriable turets syndrome in my face, chronic back pain, mainly diabetes were im dizzy and sleep out of nowhere. Like I blew my feet out being homeless and can hardly walk, but my gait is normal. How can I go to work if I dont kniw if I am going to be sick or not. I lost jobs getting dizzy on them. But I guess the long hearing that you think is so she can approve you is really a secret pleasure she gets to taunt you. And she brought me too tears. My lawyer said oh shes fair. I could have had a different judge because my request was for a live hearing. My hearing was going to be rescheduled but my lawyer said I would be fine. You have to have stage 3 cancer or in a comma or brain damaged so bad to maybe win. In fact my lawyer couldn't remember a single approval. If you get this judge and I regret I had an out, but seriously find some way to get an emergency re scheduled hearing. Waiting a few months longer is worth not waiting for a no that is sure to come and at the very last minute at that. Denials come fast. She takes pleasure in her job because it allows her to be evil. This judge said she was taking so long and all the questions were for my benifit. Yea she said this too me. Like I would take that as I'm getting all the info to approve you, only to deny you. It's a joke to her. She is the Jigsaw of the SSA. I want to olay a game watching you in need think you have a chance and then the worse off you are the more you will find I am doing this for my sick sociopathic purposes. She will find a special kind of Hell for how she does sick desperate people. Don't play find an emergency somehow. I don't know who she approves but they must be near death as she is the most sinister. I can only say she gotta be taking bribes from lawyers who bring clients with the most money to get backpay and split it or something. My lawyer used me as a fill in. I think they were in cohorts. Her stats are not normal no were near. If she got disabled in pain I would not shed a tear. As she is the AntiChrist please investagate this monster!

I was very pleased with the decision rendered. Judge Perez actually took the time out to truly understand my case.

1, I'm shocked as to the report I received, denial letter from judge Jarvis. No individual can not should they decide whT I am or am not capable of. I do 0 moan and run put dirt in my hair, however have to be prompted to shower. My struggle is that of one daily. She is deplorable. Way to go keeping up your deniable stats, she is rude, condescending mean and seemingly hateful. Pays no attention to medical, rather contradicts herself and tells you in not so many words...hey if u weren't thinkin of slitting your wrists before you better Hv at to do with to first thing in the mornin now.

This judge uses prejudice against people... My friend Tommy Draughon was turned down with 7 doctors that said he was unable to work and has 22 different things wrong with his health major health issues is POLYCYTHEMIA..3 mini strokes , heart, lung, kidney, and blood clots all due to this disease, it also caused him to have COPD and severe migraines... This judge didn't see all that .. She only seen a 6 foot 6 inch man that from the outside looks fine .. What he has cannot be faked, and can be backed up by 7 doctors.., this judge is prejudiced and should be investigated on this matter !!!

Rossanna L D Allessio flat out lies, she has no respect for due process or law period. She makes up anything, and everything to deny while she ignores the actual facts presented to her. People certainly die as a result of her abuse, and she knows it all to well. If you ever wonder were those Nazi concentration camp officers came from? Just look at D Alessio she is of the same disgusting in-humane stuff. They hide themselves for a reason, I've been told by others that she has no legal education other than a few SSA internal courses, she was a former IRS auditor, nothing more, prior to becoming an ALJ. She is a internally trained murderous thug plain, and simple, who could never in a million years make the kind of money she is now as an ALJ, as she has no real qualifications of any kind. Just like those Nazi's who would never have made officer rank if not for their ability to smile, and slaughter men, women, and children as a solution to the question of too many people. So there you have her in a nutshell. They should all post their education, and resume for the taxpayers to see, we pay her high salary, who is she, why does she hide in darkness like all the rest? Because evil always lurks in darkness, and shadows, and she is evil. You, me, us, we all get left by the side of the road to die, and she profits we are rendered like farmed animals, and we even get to pay for it all. These judges are destroying the very fabric of this Nation, as we are a Nation of Law, and Due Process, of which they spit upon daily.

lone wolf
starts out like she is the queen bee and you better stand tall in her court, then tries to lure you into things like do you have hobbies, yes, what are they and do you get to go alot. tries to lure you into a nice conversation. she will twist and turn everything you say. truly one of satan's own children. She could give two craps if you are in pain and financial duress. you would have to be on a gurney with last rites being read over you and she would still probably deny you. We all need to remember their paycheck comes from the people she denies. enough letters and reprimands along with censorship should at least get her attention. has the personality of hanibal lechter.

Black Widow
She's a real black widow lady judge. She was looking at her computer and had a freaking smile on her face. I feel like it was rude to have another lady being trained how to input the hearing information during a private case. Black widow Jarvis kept rushing my friend lawyer to ask his questions to the vocational expert. Then she stated she had another case at 10:45 am. Black widow needs to learn the rules of giving people their money that they've worked so hard for. By the way when the black widow don't approve cases she don't get raises or any other bonus. I looked at her while my friend was having her hearing and the black widow wasn't caring at all. She's a very arrogant black widow person. We're black as well. She has no reason to deny my friend, but she'll try to deny him with weak things she has. But nothing she say will stick because she's a vindictive and cruel person. I hope and pray that the black widow will get a taste of her own medicine, when she can't work and has to go through a disability hearing to get what's rightfully yours.

I had my hearing before Judge Peffley in January and found him to be very down-to-earth. Was very genuine and concerned. I didn't have an attorney and Judge Peffley made me feel very comfortable and not intimidated at all.
