I thought he was kind, direct and to the point. I feel like I may not have provided all information to him that I wanted to. But overall I was content and don't honk someone else would have been better

Judge Loucas is very knowledgeable about the law concerning disability. She looks and asks you about your complete work and medical histories. Your lawyer needs to be very prepared to countering and follow her logic of applying the laws to your case. If you can do ANY type of work, you will not prevail in her courtroom.

I do not care for Kim K. Griswald, as she does not care for me. Yes, I have used substances throughout the years, probably because of my condition. My only hope to make it in this world was social security income, and now that's shattered. She grilled me on my marijuana use, and honestly that stuff HELPS me, and I know this, because I'm me. It's 2013, and I just got my decision of unfavorable. Thanks Kim
