What others have said about Hon. Marilyn B. Miles


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA29429
My all-time favorite judge. Ran a tight courtroom with grace and a quiet word. Not afraid to do the right thing. Tough but fair.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA15107
She knew more than the White Man, and did some decent, good, just things not just by the book but considered and decent. But if you beat somebody down, too wrong, you were going to get "hooked up" high bail, and if that what you got you had it coming


Comment #: CA15106
Now retired the bench is poorer for it. She was painstaking, used discretion when she saw fit, but despised cruelty and violence. She is a good person and a good judge and had a heart-- where it belonged, but not if you didn't. She knew justice, is Justitia, a Roman goddess not a slogan but a considered compassionate and sometimes dispassionate fairness. None of us want what "we deserve".
