Comment #: IL871
He is one of the finest judges around. He is a decent, kind, thoughtful, firm but fair individual, and he is such a pleasure to appear before. He is always kind and courteous to the advocates, court personnel, defendants, and victims in his courtroom, and to all people in general. He is a good man who treated me with respect and kindness. He really makes you feel good about being a lawyer. He is also a very good writer.

I did not even know about this website. I was looking this judge up for other reasons. That being said, this is the best judge I have ever appeared before.

This man has the right pedigree to become the type of even handed administration of his courtroom. Former states attorney, former private criminal defense attorney, this guy is no push over but is fair to both sides.

An excellent judge, and an up and comer in the judiciary.
