He does not know HOA law one bit. He didnt even know what the abbreviation HOA stood for. As such he was not able to properly decide an HOA case amd did not give a legal opinion as to why he ruled the way he did. He allowed the HOA attorney to help defend the HOA in a small claims case which is against the code of civil procedure. The attorney stayed through the whole hearing and also gave his legal opinion on matters. It was shocking!

Wise, patient, kind, respectful to both parties, friendly, fair in rulings to both sides, listens, asked great questions, Doesn’t treat self-represented litigants like they’re dumb. Best judge I’ve ever seen.

Recently sat through pre-trail jury selection. Judge handled himself very well and kept what is a painstakingly tedious process moving along. Hand command of the courtroom and despite the seriousness of the impending case, kept the atmosphere congenial but serious with his sense of humor and respect for the law.

One of the few judges that everyone seems to like. I am jealous. Too bad that 99% of the judges are mean and hate their job. It shows in their sour faces and daily growling at the attys. and litigants.

One of the best judges on the bench. Yes he was a former DA but left the office and became a traffic court commissioner after he angered someone in the DA's office. Was also a former FBI agent. Great judge to do a trial in front of. Very friendly, pleasant, great sense of humor and easy to get along with. Will let you try your case and is very industrious. Will do the legal research necessary before issuing a written opinion.

This judge is smart and fair to all sides, and is very pleasant to appear in front of. What more do you want as an attorney?

Nice man, with a good sense of humor. Willing to hear additional briefs on in limines and other evidentiary issues. Some questionable evidentiary rulings and sentenced my client for more than the District Attorney asked for, which I found questionable for a simple DUI case.

Excellent environment in which to try a criminal case. Good common sense, good sense of humor, and, most importantly, fair. This judge will take time to look up the law and hear evidence and argument.
