What others have said about Hon. Peter J. Wilson



Comment #: CA7412
Awesome! No judgement yet so not biased. Judge Wilson let both parties get all their points out. He added questions-gave both sides opportunity to counter the other. Demeanor/attitude outstanding. Don't see how a Judge can be better.

My only comment is that I am a novice trial lawyer and this Judge was obviously annoyed at my lack of experience and expertise. Obviously knowledgeable but if you are inexperienced at litigation beware!

Very fair, scholarly and even-tempered jurist. Originally from South Africa and worked in civil rights. He carefully considered all arguments and wasn't afraid to pull out the Rutter guide to research an issue in open court. He ruled partially against and partially in favor of my client. I could not have felt bad regardless of how he ruled; all I know is that he carefully considered and each issue and calmly gave each attorney ample opportunity to argue. If you have a good case and are a good lawyer legal, I think you will have drawn a great judge if you get Peter J. Wilson.
