This judge has inappropriate contact with juries at the jury pool in Miami-Dade. The very same jurors he's chatting up in the morning might very well be selected to serve on his panels.

This judge is even-handed and fair. He likes to move his docket along, and does so appropriately.

Conscientious and hard-working to a fault. If a member of my family was involved in a suit, I would want a judge like Miller deciding the case.

These posts by Padilla are absurd. Judge Miller works harder and is more thoughtful and fair than any judge on the bench, state or federal. Padilla is unqualified and can't cut it as a lawyer. He is just angry that Miller ruled against him in a case where he thought he was going to make a nice fee -- something he's never done.

Miller was the first guy to let jurors ask questions. He is smart and reasonable and doesn't hesitate to reconsider rulings when justified. I have won and lost in front of him and never felt I got anything less than a completely fair opportunity.

Great! I will contact Padilla. I would LOVE to be on his campaign committee and I have done this before! I would feel like Lebron James to see Miller defeated. I have worked on Presidential Campaigns!I write speeches, deliver speeches and I am above reproach and I can personally speak to the character of Miller ...he is an animal!

Judge David Miller is a very fair and professional Judge. Although I have not always been pleased with his decisions, what lawyer is always happy unless the ruling is for their side. Judge Millers Opponent, Padilla who Miller ruled against in a case last year is on a vendetta to try to destroy Miller because he is so distraught about last years ruling. Padilla's Flaming personal lifestyle is going to come out and embarass him as it gets closer to the election. His Facebook pics with the sweet butterflies are already floating around. We can expect Padilla is spending sleepless nigts on these and other blogs trying to do damage as he can't match the funding Miller has accumulated.

He makes up his own motions and rules himself.. At time he makes ups motions & immediately rules for the otherside without any pleadings based on his personal feeling without evidentiary hearingor otherwise. He suffers from migraines and turns the a/c to 65 deg and if you don;t like it he tells you to leave. Additionally he will rule on a motion without giving you an opportunity to argue youf own motion. He has a wicked temper, carries a gun strpped to his ankle and has even attacked female judges pHYSICALLY. He needs mental help

Obviously, the opponent whom Judge Miller has drawn in the August 2012 election, an unhappy attorney from one of Judge Miller's trials, has found the Robing Room. Do not let this poster's (6/26/12) comments color your opinion about Judge Miller. You will not find a less-biased, less politically motivated judge, whose intelligence is matched only by a handful of other Dade County judges.

Another biased and politically motivated and stupid Judge. Surprised to see even any positive comments about him. just because he is the first one to the court house does not mean he knows squat about the law.

Here is a Judge who has command of his courtroom without disrespecting the lawyers who are before him. He is intelligent without being condescending. The total package who "gets it" because he was a practicing lawyer.

Can't say enough positive things about this judge. The complete package. Best trait, among so many others, is that he's entirely apolitical. Not afraid to make the hard or unpopular decisions. Doesn't march to anyone else's beat or push any agenda. We need more like him.

Best judge in Miami-Dade. Opens the courthouse every morning. Extremely accessible and always prepared. Not afraid to make tough decisions. Extremely fair minded and respectful of counsel who appear before him. It is always a pleasure to practice before him.

You won't find a harder working judge in Dade County or one who cares as much as this judge. He is a compassionate humanitarian, who genuinely cares about the people in his courtroom. He's intelligent, fair, and one of the best that Dade County has.

He is a very sharp judge with a willingness to provide guidance in difficult cases, though he is sometimes a little curt with his rulings.

Well-prepared, hard-working and prompt. A little too full of himself and takes things personally. If he toned this down he would be the complete package.
