What others have said about Hon. Paul Lloyd Beeman

Comment #: CA6875
Judge Beeman is one of those few judges who apologizes when he gets it wrong. I have never appeared in front of any judge who has done this - ever. He initially can be impatient, and not appear to listen, but as his mind processed informaiton, he comes back at it - even if it is at a second hearing. He wants you to go to mediaton - so go. He works very hard in settlement conferences. His decisions can be unpredictable if it is a judge trial. His analysis is different than my analysis of the facts. He will listen to you and is genuinely interested in what you have to say.

Judge Beeman is a great judge. He is smart, likes interesting matters and good lawyering. He is way underutilized. If you have a challenging matter and you are a good lawyer he will be interested and you will be lucky he is your judge.
