Administrative Law Judge Approval Rates in North Dakota

Published by Anton Ficek

The outcome of your social security claim partially depends on the Administrative Law Judge who presides over your hearing. There are currently seven Administrative Law Judges who regularly preside over social security hearings in the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area. I have posted ALJ Disposition Data the time period dated September 25, 2021 to December 24, 2021. Our blog editor does not currently permit inserting tables. The order of the columns is as follows: Judge, Office, Total Dispositions, Total ALJ Dispositions, Decisions, Awards, Denials, Fully Favorable, Partially Favorable.

The attorneys in our law firm have  practiced before each of these Administrative Law Judges with the exception of Hope Grunberg. When you receive your hearing notice, please note who the Administrative Law Judge is because they all handle hearings in different ways. It is important that you are prepared for the types of questions that the judge will ask and this is highly dependent on your judge. We recommend you seek counsel for an administrative law hearing. If you go into a hearing, the Administrative Law Judge should inform you that you have a right to seek counsel. At that point, you can request a postponement of your hearing to request time to find an attorney to represent you.
