Comment #: FL4043
Absolute worst (former) judge in the 9th Circuit. Rated by his peers as the worst out of all judges in the 9th Judicial Circuit.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL3340
Luckily, Judge Barlow is low-pressure, and is a joy to practice in front of in Orange County. I am very happy when I get cases with him. Due to his many years as a defense attorney and prosecutor, he has vast experience in criminal law and won't miss a legal issue. I have never seen him upset or treat any litigant or lawyer with disrespect. He is very even-tempered, and nothing rattles him. Judge Barlow has a reputation for being fair and reasonable among the criminal defense bar. Expect efficiency and a fair shake in his courtroom.
