Judge Brewer is a great man to work for. He is so down to earth you sometimes forget he is the Judge. I believe he is fair and firm in his dealings with the defendants, and not only sentences but tries to set them on the right path for the future.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL1539
It is a refreshing change to appear before this Judge. He treats attorneys and our clients with respect. Not all judges do this. He can see threw the smoke screens we sometimes put forth and then does what is right.

Judge Brewer is back in Criminal with a vengance. Do not cross him; he is mad and up for election. Plea deal if you can

Comment #: FL1472
Excellent trial judge. Follows the law and the rules of evidence. Makes efforts to streamline the system to prevent unnecessary delays. Encourages professional behavior and discourages bad faith behavior (e.g., delays, failure to confer, etc.). Applies plenty of common sense.

He is one of the best you can get at the county court level. Doesn't fall for the insurance company's nonsense like so many of the other politicians on the bench do.

He is down to earth. Does not go on a power trip just because he has a robe on. Tough but fair and does not allow gamesmanship. Honest.
