Judge Joseph Shortill is being transferred to the Portland Maine hearing office. His first day of hearings will be Easter Monday, April 13th.

Judge Shortill has been a Social Security administrative law judge in the Springfield, Massachusetts hearing office. I have had several hearings with him there, and in Worcester. He will be a terrific addition to the Portland, Maine ODAR.

Judge Shortill practiced law for many years in Sanford, Maine, so this new assignment represents a homecoming for him. Welcome home.
