Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL2660
Rating:9.1
Comments:
Judge Hendon was an excellent trial attorney in his criminal defense days. He is modest and down to earth and still feels comfortable with attorneys he has practiced with prior to being elevated to the bench. He is compassionate and ready to listen to argument. He adds class and dignity to the Dade County list of Judges.

Comments:
Very prejudicial. Favors judgements for those who have sued him in the past. Does not correct frequent mistakes made by staff. Does not follow and has very limited knowledge of the Federal Rules.

I agree with the last comment: Judge Hendon is incompetent and will not listen to reason when it involves statutes that he does not understand. His rulings are dangerous.

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:1.0

Judge Hendon is absolutely incompetent. He doesn't appear to understand the most basic legal concepts. Even when shown that he is completely wrong on a ruling, he will not turn back. (During an argument on a motion to strike affirmative defenses, he ruled that "Accord and Satisfaction" was not a valid affirmative defense and I showed him FRCP 1.110 which expressly lists it as an affirmative defense.) He will not listen to reason but makes crazy snap rulings and then sticks to them no matter what. He is awful.
