What others have said about Hon. Sam Myers



Comment #: AZ600
He did not read the exhibits or the documents for a review hearing, and the lady who introduced him stated this. I feel that if he would've read the documents, my case would have proceeded differently. I am, overall, unhappy with Judge Myers's performance, due to his failure to familiarize himself with my case. Another girl that I spoke to in a Co-Parenting class stated the exact same thing, and her ex got more time with her kid, who was not a part of his life for the first two years.

This Judge does not read the caselaw, and is not well prepared. I foresee many appeals and remands in his future.

Did not understand the issues presented. Ruled without argument in a complex case. Appeared to have done nothing to educate himself regarding new case law; I'm not even sure that he read the cases cited.

For a newer judge, Judge Myers is polite to all counsel, punctual and attentive to the requests of the parties, and very organized. He is an asset to the court.
