What others have said about Hon. Huey P. Cotton, Jr.


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA9923
This judge surprised me. At first I thought he was cool. Then I thought he was mean and short. Then at trial he had clearly read the briefs and took detailed notes, was flexible in admitting evidence, and wrote a great opinion that captured intelligent points about the case. Very impressive overall.

He could hear all my cases whether I am representing a plaintiff or defendant. He is smart, courteous and decisive and makes the right calls.

Look in the dictionary for the definition of "cool" and you'll find a picture of Judge Cotton. While he's always late, he runs his courtroom efficiently and evenhandedly. During trial he often rules based on the last lawyer who argues before him; he may flip flop, but once he decides he stops discussion. Setting that aside, he's an excellent trial judge with a good sense of self and sense of humor.

Good judge. Knowledge of the law and good judge of witness character. He could be the judge on all my cases.

He is very incompetent. He does not know and understand basic concepts of law. His writing skills are very poor. He is unfit as a judge.
