Comment #: FL4953
This is a judge of true integrity. An honest and good man. If only there were more dependency court judges like him.


Comment #: FL2142
This judge dismissed an injuction on a man with a criminal background for violence who threatened us. We had proof of this and the judge had no interest in it and told this man to just leave us alone. Well immediately after we left the courthouse this man has already contacted my employer talking bad about me and now put my personal information on the internet. So thanks to this judge this criminal feels he has the right to keep on harassing us.

Rating:Not Rated
He sits high and mighty in Bank Of America Pockets. He too will fall. He should not be allowed to rule on any Bank of America's cases and his rulings should be over turned. It's a bad joke on home owners.

Smart but occasionally hot-headed. Will favor the little guy. Will come down hard on lawyers in the right circumstances.
