Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CT283
attorneys behind closed doors call him a lazy Judge. Takes the easy way. Provides no follow up on compliance with his orders, even when presented with motions in court asking him to enforce his orders. makes no effort to find out the rest of the story.
Does not have the ability to craft solutions to difficult problems. Prefers to not make rulings when they are desperately needed. Asked absolutely no questions during a 6 day trial. agree with comment CT47


Comment #: CT47
This is a judge who is very patient with the idiots in the courtroom. However, when family issues are brought to court because the parties involved cannot solve their problems, he is unable to solve difficult issues or difficult cases.

Good judge. Most patient judge I've seen when confronted by crazies in the courtroom.
