Comment #: FL5528
Fair judge, if your prepared you will find him outstanding. If not prepared he demands lawyers follow the rules. One of the bests trial judges, if not the best.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL5506
This judge seems angry and irritated all the time. I don't understand judges that seem to be annoyed when required to do their jobs. Apparently, he has forgotten what it is like to be a litigator and treats lawyers with contempt.

Always on time. Moves cases. Rulings are down the middle. Outstanding judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL3443
One of the best trial judges. Calls cases evenly. Be prepared. Is on time, reads pretrial motions, allows attorneys to try their cases. Need more on the bench.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL2898
He is extremely weak on the law, particularly for a judge who's been on the bench for several years. He frequently makes very bad rulilngs, far more often than most judges.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL2214
One of the best. Totally even handed. No BS. Expects attorneys to be totally prepared and on top of their game. Manages his courtroom efficiently and authoritatively and respects attorneys. Kind of guy who commands respect in the courtroom but you get the impression that, all other things being equal, he would be a great guy to have a beer with after the trial.
