This man has poor judgement and poor ratings. He is biased in his decisions and fails to accept cases even when someone has impeccable paperwork. This man ruins lives and should definitely be considered for investigation and removal of position.

You are a twisted alj.You make your decisions before hand. Hope you sleep good at night. I have never lied about anything in my life. You didn't listen to any testimony. I had a excellent attorney 😠

My situation is almost identical. Not only did I get declined for disability, but this guy totally badmouthed my doctors and called me a liar. To make matters worse, I was represented by Myler Disability, whom I have now learned has a bad reputation all over the internet. Not only did they not help me, but the idiot lawyer set me up to take a fall. I also feel that I was discriminated against because I have a high I.Q. I am working on a few ideas as to where to go from here. As far as this guy is concerned, eventually stuff like this catches up with everybody. Eventually we ALL stand before a final judge. Peace.

Judge tranguch, jarrod
This "judge" was in no way fair. The judge dismissed documents that my PCP gave and used (out of context) a comment by another doc instead. He gave almost no weight to my PCP who has access to my records and has studied them. I was denied having a witness. Security told my wife she was not allowed back to the hearing room. She is the one who is writing this as I having some mental issues. Those issues were dismissed in favor of personal judgement against my role as a stay at home dad. Wonder why his approval for cases is 33% when the national average is 46% and the Wilkes office is 41%. We believe a Title 7 issue baised the "judge" and I will be filing a formal grieance.
