Far and away the best judge I have ever appeared in front of. Pleasant, even tempered, knowledgeable and great sense of humor are just some of the qualities of this outstanding judge. Fair to both sides, wiling to listen to arguments and every trial has been a joy. How I wish every judge was like Judge Abbott.

Another judge I love. This man is former Navy, but not indoctrinated. An open minded judge, so prepare for hearings in chambers before you go into court. Department 60 runs about one hour late, due to his interest in all cases. He listens to the DAs so be
prepared with briefs, etc.
