What others have said about Hon. Mary McGowan


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: AR22
Why this woman is still on the bench is an enigma to every lawyer in that district. She is outrageously disrespectful to anyone that appears before her ridiculing lawyers in front of their clients and kicking people out of the courtroom for coughing. She makes a mockery out the court and despite numerous complaints to the judiciary she is still there.

Rating:Not Rated
Judge Mary McGowan was not only straightforward and to the point as far as letting me represent myself in court for not paying my child support, but she listened to my problems and didn't show any bias in her judgment. I'm glad that I have been able to finally grow as a man, and realize what I was put on this earth to do. I owe it all to the Honorable Mary McGowan.
