Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA45267
Rating:1.8
Comments:
Horrible bench demeanor. Appears and acts very angry in all proceedings. Favors prosecution and is very inflexible. No or little compassion for others. Never smiles and is very unapproachable. Completely different when he was an attorney.

What you see is what you get with Judge Clay. If you appear before him a couple of times, you can likely predict how he'll respond to the matter you have before him. He always seems to be in a cranky mood though - I just wish he'd crack a smile, or a joke, sometimes? I think he has a well-rounded understanding of the law; if he even hesitates, he will find out the answer. I appreciate his determination on making accurate rulings.
