Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA14428
He is a former prosecutor AND CHP. He is evenhanded towards prosecution and the defense. Doesn't deny defense motions out of hand and doesn't micromanage trial. Some lawyers are uncomfortable with him because he can be demanding regarding a lawyer's ability and performance in court and can be blunt in criticsim.

I was appalled at how he treated the victims in a case - we felt like we were the bad people and the defendant was the victim. Very rude, read our impact statements and he ignored us, seemed very irritated that we were even there. He was very accommodating to the defendant. Told us we were wrong in what we did and that we should have called the cops - which this is exactly what we did. I am going to file a complaint against this judge, to me he is a bully - to me he took offense to our victim impact statement and took offense like we were telling him how to do his job. Very unprofessional!


Comment #: CA11457
Very rude to the plaintiffs, and to the DA - very accommodating to the defendant. We felt we were the defendants and the defendant was the victim.
