A very fair and professional judge that listens to your testimony and reads your medical records to make a very fair and informed decision. This has been a long hard journey and I was blessed to be before this judge. May God bless and keep you and your family.

My husband had a hearing last week in front of Mrs Grayson. Tho I wasn't allowed in the courtroom with him. When he came out of court and was on our way home he told me how very professional and at ease she made him feel. With all his physical and mental disabilities and the long wait we had to endute. With so much riding on her decision, he was extremely stressed with extreme anxiety but right away was made to feel somewhat at ease during the process. I will not discuss anything said in court, but Mrs Grayson, I personally wanted to thank you for your time and compassion. Hopefully we can move forward now and once again be a family again!!! Thank you, - Jessica

I don't know what I need to prove that I can not work but every job that ive had in the past fired me for beaing a danger and I am still having nocturnal seizures umm the reason I don't have that many hosptiol records is that someone with amr got mad at me when I was fighting them and told me to say ama that is where that came from and the only reason I know of diff stuff like this is because I have a big folder with records in it and I called mdrs just like the last time they told me that I'm to much of a danger to work and as for school it done me no good I don't know if you know this but when I have a siexure I try to kill myself is what is in the papers just a heads up I can not even work at any fast food down here I worked a same club and Walmart will not hire me same with the casino the one I worked for fired me for beaing a danger to the public and my state medicad that I am on dr hetrick was the only doctor that I could see on this insurance and they would only pay for a two day exam I do sit a lot because ifg iu get up to do anything I satart to sweat bad and thaty is when I feel a siexure come on I could not pay for the medication is the reason for the non complint everyt8ime I would get a job three or four moths and boom have a seizure I can not work if yaw put me back to work I'm going to be a danger to myself or someone else

This judge had a employment advocate when she should have had a medical professional. Neither one of them are qualified to determine if someone can work a daily job. The surgeon will not release my husband to go to work because of his fusion on his spine. No one will hire him with out that release.....HE CAN NOT WORK!!!

I know this judge is wrong in her decisions.My husband's surgeon will not release him to go back to work. With both of his back surgeries he has little mobility from his spine fusion.The surgeon said it is too much of a danger if he got hurt any worse could do more damage. If there were a rating of 0 for this judge it would be double 0
