I had my disability hearing in May 2013 with Judge Nicole S Forbes Schmitt. I have to admit that I was very nervous about the hearing, but I think most of my nervousness came from the fact I had viewed this site several times before my hearing. I think reading all the angry and upset comments made it difficult to have a positive outlook. I do understand that this disability process is dragged out too long and can be very frustrating. The fact that I went for TWO YEARS without any type of income caused me a great deal of stress. I was found disabled by Judge Forbes-Schmitt. She was very business-like and detail-oriented but still came across as kind and caring. I was pleasantly surprised after reading the majority of comments on this site which truthfully had me scared to death! If you have a hearing coming up, take my advice and stop reading these posts now! The best thing you can do is make sure you submit all your medical info like xrays, test results and doctors notes. Make sure you get a Disability Lawyer to represent you...don't go into a hearing alone. When the Judge asks you a question, be sure to answer only what you are asked(don't trail off-it might get you in trouble!) and always be truthful. I wish you all the best of luck. (and I hope you are scheduled with Judge Nicole S Forbes Schmitt!)

She was over my diability case back in 2010. I thought she was very unfair and even my lawyer thought everything went fine. I soon received a letter telling me I was denied. One reason put on it was "inconsistent information provided by the claimant...conscious intention to mislead." She said I was lying. Everything was in my medical records. I have been fighting SSA ever since.
