I lost my case. However, I must admit that Judge Gaines is a tremendous asset to the Maricopa County Superior Court. He is brilliant, engaging, fair, analytical and the list goes on...He possesses a lot of intergrity, wit and a stimulating sense of humor. It was a pleasure to be in his court.

Comments:
Does a poor job of disguising his favoritism toward defense, and sometimes toward their lawyers. Always needs to be the smartest and most charming lawyer in the room. Extremely unfair during jury selection in civil cases. Did not allow sufficient time and was not genuinely interested in picking jurors who were unbiased.
