What others have said about Hon. Richard Alan Enslen


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: 21228
This judge is very liberal and does not have a very good courtroom manner, including with witnesses.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 9897
Judge Enslen is a joy to try a case before. He gets in a lot of trial time each day, is evenhanded and fair to both sides, and can even inject a little humor into the proceedings on occasion. He is exceptionally smart, and while obviously liberal politically, does not let his personal views distort his rulings on the law. He is a great judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 4268
A very liberal judge with a quirky personality. However, Judge Enslen is extremely bright and writes very scholarly and readable opinions. He handles complex civil litigation with ease. Generally a very good judge.
