What others have said about Hon. Patrick Timothy Meyers



Comment #: CA9527
Was not interested in hearing my loved ones preliminary hearing from the moment we walked into the court room. He kept looking at the clock, rude, short tempered. Only read the case 30 minutes prior to starting. Worse Judge I've ever encountered in my life. Cant believe our tax dollars pays for a man like him. If you are assigned to his court room, REQUEST A NEW JUDGE. If you have a bad morning, should not be sitting on a bench.

He gives the most thorough voir dire of any criminal judge I have ever been in front of. He also believes in a fair trial, and will not allow prosecutors to go overboard to get a conviction. However, he does have a temper, and one never knows when "Mt. Meyers" will erupt. But, he is an equal opportunity judge, and will flame out on either side.
