He has a temper problem and raises his voice and needs to learn to control himself. I can't say he's unknowledgeable about the law, but sure could use some anger management or classes on how to act professional. He gets a thrill out of yelling at people. He's never disrespected me personally but I've seen his true colors. He needs meds or something.
