If you are an experienced trial attorney and know what you are doing, he will treat you fine. However, if you are inexperienced, he is not very tolerant. All in all, an excellent trial judge. Quick wit.

In his pre-judicial life, Judge Morris Jacobson was a prison guard in Oklahoma. He is a harsh, heavy-handed judge.
