Rating:Not Rated
I thought he was fair. I was not happy that when he took the bench for oral argument that he said "I just received the motion paperwork ten minutes ago" and then asked us to argue, but then he set us up for a continued hearing and issued a very detailed tentative ruling prior to it, and allowed the parties to argue it. He treated the attorneys like professionals, understood the issues, and while we didn't get everything we asked for in our motion, his ruling was fair.

I can't say enough about the fairness impartiality to all involved. No matter what the charge is this judge always behaves and extends the utmost respect to everyone. He's tolerant to an extent but will politely voice his feelings on unrelated issues. If you have to appear in front of a judge.hes your best bet. One thing that I consider to be concerning is when a judge is moody or has a bad day.... I never observed anything like that in his courtroom
