I found this judge to be through, professional and well prepared. She was personable while being efficient even though my appearance was over an hour long. All of the personal (the vocational and the note taker) in her court were clearly on the same page as Judge Mucerino. It seemed to me that they have worked together for awhile. The only question I had after leaving is when the "on set" date of my disability would be considered. According to my attorney it could be the date of application (June 2011)or perhaps the date I stopped working June 2010. An argument could be made that while I continued to work I was in fact disabled I 2006. Since I have no idea of the rules determining this I will rely on the Judge for a determination. No matter the decision I am confident that it will be correct.

I don't know her decision yet. But I am very concerned about it as she made a remark at the end that I will NEVER forget. She said "You must understand that it is very hard for me to label someone your age disabled for the rest of your life." I have a progressive autoimmune disease that has NO cure and NO real treatment. It WILL get worse and it WILL eventually take my life. I am in my forties with the health of someone almost twice my age. I pray that she fully understands this and my need to help care for myself and my family. I am scared because of her statement. The unknown is the worst part.

Judge Kathleen Mucerino was great. She was well prepared for my case and asked questions that pertained to my disability. She spoke respectfully and never seemed as if she was uninterested in my case. My lawyer had spoken to me over the phone prior to my hearing and said that she might come off as being short and hard with her questions. It was nothing like that. I was a little nervous going into the hearing, but within minutes, my mind was at ease. I believe that she use my statements and make a well educated decision.

Disorganized and crabby.
