Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL5633
Very impressed with his command of his courtroom. Respect,courtesy and promptness is expected. His findings and conclusions are unbiased. There's no waste of time. I will miss his character in foreclosure. GASTSTUBE

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL5514
In foreclosure matters this Judge is very pro bank and does not care about the law. Threatens to sanction all defense counsel for the basic opposition and temperament is that of a angry man who lacks common courtesy. How this individual became a judge is beyond me.


Comment #: FL4699
Judge is extremely Biased and unfair. Brought his moms history of being a professional appraiser into a ruling unfairly. He should have recused himself if he can't rule fairly.


Comment #: FL3879
Rating:Not Rated
I never had to deal with a judge but what I have seen in his court room was the most unprofessional behavior I have ever witnessed. He was unprepared, rude and a typical bully. My son had a case of theft by a former co-worker. He agreed to have a trail and that was over 6 years ago, never heard anything again. If that is justice, we can do without. We all know, money talks. We don't have any so we have no right.


Comment #: FL3778
Very biased man toward women. Unfair, judge mental. Broke several administrative rules.
