This judge runs a circus, does not put the interests of a child ahead of his own bias for fathers. A father with a criminal background, which this judge refused to consider, and who had chosen not to meet his son until court, was given preference over a mother who was working to solely support the child. He was afraid of this ruling which cost the mother a lot of money and resolved nothing. I am thoroughly disgusted with this judge. He emboldened a criminal father.

This judge is a complete mockery of the entire judicial system. He refuses to follow the law, and is completely incapable of administering justice. His rulings are based on personal bias and prejudice. The best interests of the child do not even cross his mind. It is apparent why he could not make it private practice -- now taxpayers get to pay for his inability to follow the law. Why is it that judges have no accountability for their actions?

He is hands down the worst excuse for a judge that I have ever seen. If a negative rating was possible on this site, I would pick it instead of a 1. From his sloppy, unkempt appearance to his inability to be punctual, to count, spell or write correctly, to follow the law, rule according to the law or handle complex case issues whatsoever, he is truly pathetic! If you happen to be unlucky enough to get him on assignment, run quickly and fire him immediately. Or, you can always spend two years and thousands of dollars in appeals to finally oust his worthless hide! You've been adequately warned, so appear at your own risk. Trust me, you don't want this guy ruling on so much as a parking ticket.

He is just an excellent and well-informed judge, with no apparent biases, who attempts to do the right thing.
