Judge Steinberg is, hands down, the best judge on the District Court bench. He personifies what a judge should be: he is highly intelligent, knows more law than I ever hope to learn, remembers the challenges in being a trial lawyer, and knows the issues. And he always, at the end, lets the client know that their lawyer did a good job even if they were not successful. What a terrific judge -- I hope that he stays on the bench forever! I wish they could all be like him.

A dellight to appear in front of this judge. He's willing to listen, does not rush counsel, and seems genuinely intereted in the litigants and their problems. Very fair, humble and sincere.
