Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA5370
Rating:9.1

I love Judge Hahn. I had him in a limited civil matter which dragged on for almost a year and had at least 10 pre-trial hearings. His courtroom is always running late, but the payoff was well worth it! Detailed, patient, respectful to all (even with the parade of pro se litigants), knowledgeable, fair....no matter the tedium, he didn't make a ruling without hearing all parties out. This drove some attorney's nuts, but as I watched case after case (including my own), I saw first hand this resulted in true justice. I lost almost every motion before this judge, but if I consider that he has the hands down best courtroom staff I've EVER worked with, he is without a doubt my personal top in the county.

How many pensions does this fellow now possess? L.A. Superior Court has some of the most unqualified judges in the nation. This man is not qualified to judge a pie eating contest!
