Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:10.0
Comments:
Judge Hong is the epitome of appropriate judicial temperament. She is always courteous and willing to listen to your argument; fair and correct rulings. She handles her courtroom well, not with an iron fist, but she is in control and neither party or lawyers rattle her or control in any way. Baltimore certainly needs more judges like her.

In my 30+ years of practicing law, I have on only one other occasion been before a judge who is as prepared, judicious and fair as Judge Hong. What distinguishes Judge Hong as a jurist is the time she takes to issue a well-reasoned, articulate opinion on the cases over which she presides. I may not always win my cases before Judge Hong, but I know, win or lose, that my client has gotten a fair shake.

Totally incompetent - where did they find her? Shortening the length of term on the bench would be helpful with judges like her.

Another reversal. This judge should be off the bench and we can all stop wasting everyone's time and money.

Ms. Hong is convincingly thoroughly incompetent and needs to be removed asap, before she does more harm to herself and others .

A disgrace to the bench.

I have to agree with the comments I've seen so far on Judge Hong. She's out of her league as a judge. She handled a divorce proceeding and botched rulings on objections and in her findings. Not a good fit for the responsibilities a judge has, and clearly biased toward female litigants. All these bad reviews can't all be wrong.

This judge should be removed - her rulings made absolutely no sense and actually hurt my children very badly. I thought she was supposed to be good with domestic cases, but she was the worst - very biased and just talked about her own personal troubles the entire time.

I agree with the other comment - she is completely incompetent, appeared to be confused and disorganized and both parties had to explain repeatedly the case facts and case law. She was useless.

Rating:1.1
Comments:
Judge Hong is incompetent and lazy on the bench - very disappointing. She failed to review documents and was unfamiliar with the law. She has made several grievous errors on the bench that had to be reversed.
Additionally in family law, she was particularly uninformed and made truly poor decisions that were actually harmful for the minor children.
