I came to the court with fear and asking for dismissing my restraining order, but he didn't listen to me , because He felt that is not good for my cases,and the way that he talked to me, gave me encouragement...He sent me to see a counselor and gave me the other appointment ... Thank you so much...

Judge Groch is an incredibly smart individual and an excellent jurist. Though likely liberal by nature, he comes from the District Attorney's office, which generally makes one lean a bit to the conservative side. I've only had one occasion to appear before Judge Groch, and he was incredibly polite and thoughtful. He likely let me argue longer than I deserved. Though he disagreed with my client's position, his demeanor was exemplary.
