News Flash: Not all Social Security Judges are the same. Everyone is an individual with a different personality, likes and dislikes, and preferences.
Some Judges are more conservative, and tend to be strict, and some are more compassionate and more likely to rule in a claimant’s favor.

Social Security assigns the cases to a Judge randomly. You are not allowed to change Judges unless there is a conflict.

The key is to know what your Judge is like, and what she looks for in your type of case.

The problem with many of the out of town companies, or far away law firms is that they have no idea who the Judge is, or what they look for in a case.

Questions about the Judge who you may have in a hearing? Feel free to call me, Illinois Attorney Dirk May, at 309-827-4371.
