#SocialSecurityDisability ODAR judge website isn't a panacea

Here's the link: http://www.disabilityjudges.com/about. Take it for what you will. It isn't the Oracle of Delphi, though.

This is a useful site in that it gives you the statistics for an ODAR judge; I do not know if they are reliable statistics, however. In other words, it tells you how they have decided cases in the past, at least statistically. The problem here is: past rulings aren't necessarily indicative of a future decision in your case. I suppose it does give you a barometer, but you don't know the fact patterns, the evidence, or the testimony. These are all very important factors as is the ability of the lawyer. You don't know any of this from these statistics. Tread lightly.
