He is a joke for an ALJ!!!! I was denied on the grounds that the doctors that I was MADE to go to were not creditable!!?? Are you kidding me? They are licensed in our state and treating patients,performing surgeries,prescribing medications yet they are not creditable!!?? Wow!!

I've worked for a law firm that has done Social Security law for 20+ years and who won't take a claim unless he feels the person is disabled. He's had a 95% record of favorable decisions until Fayetteville ODAR opened up. What a train wreck! I really feel for the claimant's who desperately deserve to be on disability and are denied. They then go to the Appeals Council where they sit for another 12 - 18 months while the claimant's lose everything they've worked for.

I think she was very sweet. Very honest very professional. She happens to go by the book and shows no favoritism. So you can't say I was denied BC I'm black or white. She is not like that at all. She listens and everything. She's also very attractive. My only complaint is she said I was denied its been 3 wks and I still haven't got my denile letter.

In re: 9/15/2012 comments concerning the VE finding jobs that were not available in your area thus you are disabled. I'm sorry but you are wrong. The standard you have to meet is that there are no jobs within the NATIONAL (not regional/ state/ local) economy. If such jobs exist in great numbers within the National economy and either you or representative are not able ot present evidence refuting the ability to perform said jobs than you are (per SSA guidelines) not disabled.

My only complaint is that it didn't feel personal because my hearing was done by video conference. I believe that a big part of detecting sincerity, or honesty is when you can look a person eye to eye..We couldn't see each other well. She did seem nice and even though I was so terribly nervous, she made me as comfortable as anyone else could..I have already gotten my denial by her, but I know it isn't her fault. She has to consider what input my drs. and the SSA drs. say. And they don't know me. What dr. really knows a person when you sit in the room waiting for an hour to see them, then you feel rushed. You aren't going to say, "Dr., I wish I was dead." They don't really care. Ms. Wright really did listen, but shucks, she didn't take my word.

I believe this judge holds resentment toward some attorneys and that determines the outcome of your case, she throwa out RFC's,and medical evidence for reasons such as she believes doctors are "helping you out" or they "didnt do enough", all her personal nastiness, NOT THE LAW she is suppose to be following. Xrays, MRI's dont count for anything as well with her.

As a rep, my first encounter with her was horrible! I just knew she was like that all the time. But I've seen her many times since then, she's awesome actually. Pleasant, professional and she listens, she does not rudely cut people off, and lot of female judges are rough (look at percentages overall on this site), especially to female reps, she is not like that. She is intelligent as the review above said, she has a toughness too that I respect but I see compassion in her. She is fair and I do not think she denies claims lightly as some other judges in this office.

The above poster is correct. Judge Myrick is very rude, hard headed, and thinks she has everything figured out before she enters the hearing room. She has the attitude that she is the brightest and most experienced person in the room even when it is painfully obvious that she is not. For those displeased with her, appeal her decisions, that is the only way to correct her poor behavior.

Mr. Hogan when he was a lawyer with Kathleen Glancy law firm in Wilmington NC helped me get my disability. I found out 4 years later that I did not get the proper payout. I spent 4 years not getting the medical help I needed for my disability, scrubbing toilets and floors, eating meagerly, not socializing, selling jewelry, etc. Social Security reimbursed me the monies not paid to me and I just received a letter I no longer qualify for medicaid part D which will cost me $600 a month. I get enought from social security to pay for my home only. Any thing else I have to have a job for.....food, electric, utilities etc which is about a minimum of $800. I have been trying to do this against all odds. It is like I was in jail for a crime I did not commit. Glancy says that their firm had nothing to do with it. I have emails to the contrary and Mr. Hogan knows that the information he gave me was incorrect. I say as you sleep comfortable in you warm safe home at night to own up oand pay me for damages.

He was a very nice judge. However he did not take all factors of my cases into consideration. The Vocational Rehab expert listed jobs that are not available in my area. Which by default makes me disabled. He denies more cases than he approves.

She was awesome! I could really tell she was giving my case her full attention, and asked questions. She was patient, as I was so scared, and never looked harsh or annoyed. She made her decision with speed, and did exactly what she said. In fact, my notice of decision came 5 days after the hearing. Hearing was on a Thursday, and I knew on Tuesday. She is fair, respectful, and considered all factors in my case
