Comment #: AZ1546
He seems very calm and collective, But lacks knowledge of business and math. He certainly does not judge based on facts but rather based on if you are on the right side of the forces that influences his courtroom. His judgment in my case (civil Litigation) was absolutely and completely vicious and unfair and it was because of who I am as an individual. He rewarded the (Al Capone) want a be who was represented by big boy firm (Quarles & Brady LLP). Someone please explain the difference between a sale and refinancing to him!


Comment #: AZ596
He seems to have a fair amount of etiquette, and he says a bunch of good things, but his judgement in my case (family court) was way off the mark. The long and the short of it is, he is new to the family court bench and doesn't seem to be able to find his rear end with both hands when it comes to family law (Title 25). He totally bought in to the theatrics, and actually stated that he was rather incompetent in basic math (seriously, he couldn't figure out basic mathematics, and therefore "found" that my children wouldn't be able to, either, which they very much do), and he did it while spewing a bunch of regurgitated FC rhetoric about how much they care, best interest of the child, blah, blah, blah. He either has that shallow a cerebral capacity, or the domestic violence coalition owns his seat. I wish that I could suggest something to help the readers who stumble onto this comment; the best advice that I could give is to hope for the best and to absolutely prepare for the worst with this guy. Hopefully, you're on the right side of the political forces behind that courtroom, because he won't be doing much for you otherwise.
