What others have said about Hon. Glen M. Reiser



Comment #: CA5405
Listened, knew the law, decisive.
Ask for this judge if you have an option.


Comment #: CA5098
Judge was thoughtful and well-spoken. He seemed genuinely interested in reaching a just result more than placating the attorneys. I wish all judges were as focused and decisive.


Comment #: CA4736
He was ignorant of an area of the law, and refused to acknowledge his ignorance. He was very angry, rude and bullying from the bench. He issued a horrible ruling creating a difficult situation for the mother of a minor boy with autism. Avoid this judge if at all possible.

Comment #: CA2069
In an age where we practitioners sometimes wonder how certain judges manage to gain a bench position, it is refreshing & delightful to encounter a "real lawyers' judge." Judge Reiser is even-tempered, bright, energetic, and patient. He does the work & is always prepared. It is a joy to try a case in his courtroom, no matter what the jury does.
