The new chief administrative law judge of the Portland, Maine Social Security hearing office is Judge Linda J. Helm. Judge Helm transferred to Portland from her previous post at the hearing office in Mobile, Alabama. We welcome her.
Judge Helm was conducting hearings today, and I already have a hearing scheduled with this new judge.
Judge Helm replaces Judge Guy Fletcher, who transferred to the Phoenix, Arizona ODAR. The weather app on my mobile phone says that the temperature today in Phoenix was 70 degrees, which is 70 degrees warmer than the temperature this morning at my office in Saco, Maine.
