Comment #: MD7656
When a judge can handle complex litigation and issues, that’s a plus. Fletcher-Hill is a top tier judge in the City.

It would appear that previous comments here were written by the judge himself or one of his clients to cook the ratings, given the way this judge conducts business in his courtroom. Given what is said to be the veto power provided by the publishers of this site to those who receive unfavorable criticism, I am not too surprised that there are no negative comments.

Exceptional judge. Great temperment. Even-handed. Fair. Handles his courtroom well, not with an iron fist, but he's in control and neither party or lawyers rattle him or control in any way. Baltimore certainly needs more judges like him.

Judge Fletcher-Hill is an extremely competent and fair jurist. I had a 2-day jury trial before him and he was a pleasure to be in front of - professional and courteous to all parties and lawyers. Even-handed, no prejudice toward either side. I'd jump at the opportunity to be before him again.
