SSA ODAR/Santa Barbara, CA region 9, ALJ Mary Everstine, once again i continue to be amazed at so many comments that this ALJ has not only LIED in, but has pre-judged cases without hearing anything, She has a history of being Prejudice against we Disabled Veterans and others who are disabled especially those who are Terminally Ill. I would not be surprised that she is accepting bribes of sorts, she has committed fraud, perjury, lied in official US records, even two of her subordinates have said she is the most disliked ALJ in all of region 9. In my case as a disabled US Veteran and a former Investigator with the US Government who got also disabled from my work. SSA admitted they not me apparently made an error over 13+ years ago and then they tell me not to worry it was our error and we will waive the over-payment since we even put it in writing that is was the FAULT of SSA. As this ALJ - Everstine failed to allow witnesses, failed to tell the truth, failed to allow evidence, altered records that i have never ever seen in my life until last week. She made up her mind without even reading the case facts, she even lied in her rulings and no doubt many people have DIED will she made improper rulings. She should no doubt be disbarred, and the SSA OIG as Well as the US OSC should be conducting an investigation she is a person who according to Federal (Real) Judges have had to overrule so many of her false rulings.

What good does it really do to have this site? Someone can't choose what judge the social security office deliberately makes you have. The social security office should review who's the worst judge ever and that's Mary Everstine. She should actually be a fictional writer because she spins a tale of lies regarding someone's case. I don't see how this **** woman can live with herself doing this to so many people. She has the highest denial rating & should be fired & lose all her government benefits. She never gave me DUE PROCESS that's legally required in this country. I never got to even speak, and the attorney I shouldn't have had to hire never said anything either. It was all just a scam & a waste of my time. She already had denied me before I even had my hearing, which like I said was not a hearing because I was never heard. I have all the proof I need, & anyone reading what I wasn't allowed can see this. She actually claimed I was lazy, but I see by how many hours she doesn't work she is projecting how she is. She has a part time job she is over paid for. Somehow she's convinced this makes her better than the majority of people who have to deal with her. She has extreme mental problems. It couldn't be more obvious!! This *****, **** woman should be on the national news stations showing who she really is. The fact the social security office continues allowing someone this insane to continue on with her hatred & bigotry towards so many says a lot. There should be a class action law suit against her & make her pay for how many people she has hurt. I can't even give her a one star, again you can see by her denial record she gets off on hurting people by denying them. Who would really enjoy doing this for a job?

I was suppose to have a "Real" ALJ hearing appeal with Mary Everstine today at 11 AM of course she was NOT available so i called her associate Joel who said " She is Busy" but i have a phone hearing with her ? well wait she is TOO BUSY, she finally called 22 minutes later and called the wrong number at that. Finally when she did call she had already made up her mind on her ruling ? She refused me subpoenas , refused, witnesses, refused to allow testimony, refused to allow even the SSA records showing that in fact the SSA is the one who made errors and lied about them. She refused to allow the alleged hearing to go on so it lasted about 5 minutes with her babbling the most. She is the same ALJ that ruled wrongfully on other cases that Federal Judges had to overrule her "Wrong rulings " I had requested ODAR for all the SSA appeal records on my matter they trickled in one piece at a time over 5 months they even sent me someone else's records and private information . It is truly amazing that our nation retains such dishonest lying lawyers and makes them ALJ's all while destroying lives of we the disabled, as a disabled Government Investigator and US Veteran i find her abuses, lies and cover up's to be appalling and agree she needs to be sanctioned and removed for cause. She lied in the very short appeal maybe 5 minutes and she hung up, she do not want to allow evidence, records or letters or testimony to come into the case which would have proved her wrong and deceitful

ALJ SSA judge Mary Everstine, She has denied me the ability to subpoena people, records, evidence, documents and obtain under oath testimony by SSA employees is not only appalling but goes against the very DUE PROCESS we as a free Nation have come to have. To deny justice to a long term disabled person is unconscionable , SSA staff have lied and yet no one cares about truth or Justice no one in SSA wants the truth out. DO NOT trust her or SSA. I have seen where US Judges have had to overturn her cases due to failure to follow the rule of law

According to the Federal Courts who have had to overrule many of her very poor decisions, she has been so inept she should be removed. Several of her denials were later overruled due to " Incompetent Legal" knowledge this is not good. Several people who have waited for her decisions have passed away due to her incompetent and neglect for the facts, rule of law and her ineptitude rulings. As some has said she is over paid, a protected government worker who thinks everyone is on SSA, SSI, SSDI and or disabled. She comes from privileged up bring and thus she feels entitled to destroy people lives, she is paid over $187,000.00 plus benefists so she has no idea what it is to be disabled or try to live off SSA, SSI,SSDI.

Horrible judge. She should be removed from a position where she can impact people's lives. I hope some day she has to experience watching someone she loves struggle to get the disability they need only to get turned down by an arrogant judge like herself.

Was extremely intimidated due to stories I had heard about this Judge. Stories passed on by legal representation and medical staff. Although I am not confident of the outcome of my hearing I do feel like the hearing went well. Judge Everstine was polite and professional. Now I wait and if denied I won't give up. Good luck to all of you going through the process.

I thought this judge was compassionate, caring and left me feeling high hopes. I think too many people lie and aren't truly disabled and i am glad she doesn't just let everyone go through the system and approve everyone that walks in her room. Not everyone deserves it. She's not only intelligent but she's beautiful so i can see how this may intimidate many and catch them off guard. Keep up the fantastic job, Judge Everstine.

Her denial rate not only speaks for itself, but with a Claimants rate of 11%.She has Determine that 89% of everyone that come before her is lying and that the treating Doctors is also lying. She need to be removed at once.This should send an alarm to all who come before her,And all of her Cases should be reexamine and I can assure you about 60% of those, would be determine to be Granted.PLEASE GET THE RID OF HER.

Never maintained eye contact. My DTRs case should have been won, after three years of doing all the right things. The system states keep seeing those expensive doctors, keep taking those 300.00/month meds, keep those records coming in. How was she suppose to manage that trick for three years. Her attorney and psychiatrist were floored, shocked and saddened by the unfavorable outcome. She cannot survive the "work world", which has been proven. She has mental and physical disabilities, she is a tapestry of disconnects and dysfunction. All she wants is to rent a little room, take care of her dog and survive. Shame on you Judge Everstine. I suggest you take a good look at your current career and act accordingly.

Her denial rate speaks for itself! Her staff told me I didn't need legal representation, which was the worse advice I've ever received, and am still paying for that! Her decision letter had contradictions in every paragraph! Despite over 150 medical records I submitted showing I was disabled, Ms. Everstine determined I wasn't. Be prepared to go the distance if your case is heard by this judge and don't go without representation!

Ms. Everstine bases her decisions on the medical evidence. More people think they are disabled than they really are.

Ms. Everstine is a very rude and non responsive individual. She is very subjective and not Equitable in her decisions regarding people that are less fortunate than herself.
