I would like to start by saying judge Tobin was very knowledgeable. He also is firm but compassionate, letting you explain your issues by asking the right question, he was easy to talk too with out filling intimidated. it seems to me that judge Tobin is not only a great judge but a great man who understands the problems that people are going through in a daily struggle. And I just want to say thank you to the judge and to all his staff.(11/19/19 was my court date)

Judge Coburn was very pleasant and patient. She let me speak when I needed to even though it might not have been appropriate. She seemed to be always smiling and understanding but also very professional. Fast moving but still willing to hear my input. I felt very comfortable and feel I was listened to.

Judge Tobin was very considerate of me during the hearing and it was obvious he truly wanted to hear and understand what I was saying. He never hesitated to clarify things that confused me or were unclear. There were emotional moments for me during the trial and he always reassured me that he understood. He is a kind man and I feel a fair judge.

I found Judge Floyd to be courteous and pleasant. Though we were running late, her demeanor made me feel that I was "heard" and I never felt rushed. I was thankful that this was a positive experience, because I felt very nervous before meeting Judge Floyd and she put me at ease.

I was very ill during my appeal before Judge Peggy M Zirlin. It was very hard for me to speak on my condition. She was patient and repeated several questions. I tried my best to understand while experiencing Migraine. She called for more information after the hearing. I believe she really wants to understand the complexity of CFS disability.

I just had a disability hearing with the honorable Judge Tobin via video teleconference earlier today. I found him quite pleasant in demeanor, he spoke eloquently explaining the process and procedure very well throughout the hearing, making sure to clarify information as needed. He conducted the hearing in a very proficient professional manner but still managed to make me feel at ease during the entire process. Anyone should consider themselves lucky to have him for a judge.
