What others have said about Hon. Donald W. Molloy


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 12959
Well prepared and hard working. Judge Molloy has a reputation for being somewhat grouchy with counsel, but in my experience this only applies to counsel who are unprepared. He will often come to pretrial conferences having done his own research and wanting to discuss issues the parties have not anticipated. If you don't know what he's talking about (which is what happened to me recently) admit it and ask to file a status report on the issue. You are probably not smart enough to fake it. He's fair and efficient but does not tolerate unprepared lawyers or unreasonable litigants.

Very bright, well-prepared and hard-working. Although Judge Molloy can at times be a little "growly" with counsel, his heart is in the right place. He always tries to do the best thing and follow the law. He is a good judge, who is a pleasure to work in front of.
