What others have said about Hon. Michelle Morley


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL7751
Judge Morley makes her courtroom a pleasant place to practice law. She treats litigants and counsel with respect but doesn't take any guff from those who are disrespectful, argumentative or unprofessional. She maintains a sense of values that reflect both the judicial canons of conduct and the expectations of the community. Above all, she is reasonable and fair and doesn't micromanage.

I agree with comment #; Fl2587. I sincerely believe that this person should never have been placed as qualifying as a judge. I label her as a "political judge" that judges accordingly. I would really give her a "0" if that would be on the list.

This judge is incapable of parsing legal issues where more than one is presented to her. Avoid her if your case has the least complexity because she will botch it up.
