What others have said about Hon. Charles M. Pratt



Comment #: CO220
Judge Charles Pratt is very dangerous. He gives the impression that he is listening and that he will be impartial, but when it comes to Colorado homeowners he is the worst of the worst. He refuses to consider any defense, including the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. It is my personal belief that he is on the take.

Excellent judge. Understands the difficulties lawyers face in litigation and even though the messy carnage was likely sometimes frustrating for him, he never took it out on the lawyers. Tolerant and fair in his rulings to both sides. You will be fortunate to draw him for your case.

Recently issued a decision in a post-conviction case "denied for the reasons cited by the prosecution" - that's all folks...
