Civil Litigation - Private

Had him for a settlement conference. It was an odd settlement conference. He had us sit in open court, as he sat on the bench, then he pointedly asked me, " “Tell them why they should pay you what you want?” I guess it's a fair question, but it was just an odd way to start a settlement conference. He was super aggressive during the MSC. He did help settle the case, so I guess he wasn't all that bad. However, I wouldn't use him again.

Judge Walsh is a superb Judge and a credit to the bench. He has a deep understanding of both criminal and civil issues, and struggles to reach the right decision in every case. He also recognizes that the attorneys appearing before him are people too, and is a very humanistic judicial officer.
