Judge Agatstein was very pleasant and seems genuinely concerned for me. His demeanor was agreeable and he gave me the opportunity to talk. The hearing process could have been intimidating and nerve wrecking, but judge Agatstein did his best to put me at ease.

Judge Marcus was very nice and friendly. I was nervous going in, but he immediately made me feel very comfortable. He made sure that I understood everything that was being asked or said, and he CLEARLY explained anything that I didn't understand. He was quick and professional and let me know what the next steps would be. I was very happy with Judge Marcus.

Judge Weir III is an excellent judge if somebody is looking for his services, I highly recommend him. Ask your lawyer if is possible to have Judge Weir to take your case.

i have seen this judge, but he does not go by the evidence thats in front of him such as doctors, or medical records. He wants to hear from others, that which delay everything. He teies to be fair, but fair is the eveidence thats submitted from the client doctors, noy other bootleg doctors that work for social security, they are clinic specilaist not actual doctors who work with certain patients.
