He was very nice and fair. He asked me questions and listened to everything that I said. Besides my attorney being late he did not let that affect his mood. I'm waiting on my decision but he was a very nice judge. I would recommend for anyone to go in front of him because he's a very caring and kind person.

It has taken me from the year 2012 to 2015 to calm down from the reasoning This Judge gave me a partial approval. She is not medically knowledgeable. She used data from a SSAN Dr. for 2011. By the hearing date my disability had worsened. She was biased because I am a Veteran and receive 100% total and permanent disability. She made a mockery out of the statemebts written by my Board Certified Oral Surgeon and my Psychiatric provider. She said they were not creditable. She based herdecision on an ongoing Infection and said that after it had healed I could work as a janitor. I am a R.N. unable to work in that field even though she agreed I could not work as a R.N. HER REASONING FOR A PARTIALLY FAVORABLE DECISION WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE. I TRULY BELIEVE THIS JUDGE FELT SINCE I RECEIVED VA BENEFITS. And lastly look at her disapproval rate. 71% so dar 2015. Wow. Do you think she is a fair judge. I think not. I pity anyone who has to go before this judge. I am thinking of filing my claim as my original case has worsened tremendously. But, if I have to meet with Judge S. Smith, I will walk out of the building and never look back. She is a total wreck!
