What others have said about Hon. Andrew A Steckler



Comment #: CA12429
I was the executor of an Estate. My encounters with Judge Stickler were not positive. There is a distinct difference in how he responds to Black families versus white clients. The white family who preceded me was treated respectfully, they were allowed to ask him questions regarding their case even though they had a lawyer. When I asked to address the Court he told me he didn't have to talk to me becauseI had a lawyer. He further stated if I wanted to talk to him I could fire my lawyer right there and he would talk to me. I was very embarrassed by his statement.

I am a retired Probation Officer Supervisor, so I am not ignorant when it comes to Court procedure. I feel he is biased towards African Americans and he treats you like a child in his Courtroom. Maybe he is just rude and arrogant.

Patient. Straightforward. Allows both sides to present their case. Reasonable approach to the introduction of evidence. Not heavy handed, but will sustain properly asserted evidentiary objections.
