The hardest judge hands down, I tried to have him recuse himself 2 weeks before hearing date, He does not care, he leads you as a plantiff in his questioning, I made a mistake during the hearing and he almost jumped off his chair in excitement that I pinned myself in a corner, luckily I had an attorney to bail me out of the problem. This judge should not be seen without an Attorney present, This Judge does not read medical charts instead poked me on an application mistake 3 years earlier I made without the aid of an Attorney. I hope you do as I did when he led me and remarked to the judge "Thank you for Answering my Question, I could not have answered it any better". Caution, Hire a Lawyer and dont take his crap, 3 years to have him as my judge seemed like the Titanic.
