What others have said about Hon. David Palmer


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: AZ1935
This judge makes horrible rulings and seemingly has no regard for the Rules of Civil Procedure. He lets parties get away with just about anything. Very concerning.


Comment #: AZ1348
Rating:Not Rated
This judge makes the most outrageous rulings based on what he knows to be falsehoods .
He also has the misconception that lawyers are for a clients "best interest " . He does not allow DG or due process and is afraid of being accused of being "conspiratorial" .
He cannot string a full sentence together and his favorite court room word is "sure" ,but for the state only . He has conducted on the spot hearings without notice and also conducted exparte meetings with the aag on specific cases

Judge Palmer is the Gold Standard. Going from Palmer to Mikitish was like going from a Cadillac to a Yugo.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: AZ1133
Rating:Not Rated
Very concerned and involved judge. He takes everything into consideration and does not rush his decisions. He is the most competent judge I have seen yet in Maricopa County.


Comment #: AZ574
He didn't pay any attention to what was said, and refused to base any of his decisions on the law.
