Litigant

Comment #: CA2626
Rating:Not Rated

This judge refused to disclose his monetary interest in a insurance defense law firm Thompson & Allesio who represented a lawyer for malpractice. Maas used his influence and friends on the bench to sabotage the case in his law firm's favor.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA1187
Rating:8.0
Comments:
I only appeared once before him. Excellent demeanor and sharp, but didn't seem particularly well-prepared, although very conversant with the applicable law, and appeared very practical, get-down-to the-issues type.
