What others have said about Hon. Douglas H. Everngam


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD7246
I appear in every District Court in the state and, after 30 years of being a lawyer, find Judge Everngam to be one of the rudest judges on the bench. He is downright mean, has decided the case before taking the bench and will not listen to anything, and is disrespectful. My colleagues also dislike being in his courtroom and we can only hope he will retire soon.

Judge Everngam is a fair judge. However like too many judges he is afraid to let a defendant "get away" with a crime because the prosecutor is too incompetent to prove their case.

Wonderful judge. Honored to practice and work with him for the last 13 years!


Comment #: MD3858
This man is ill mannered and enjoys making others miserable in court. He is partial and hands down unfair judgment and had been complained about repeatedly to the commission for judicial disabilities. He refuses to listen to evidence without prejudgment and makes his findings based on ex parte communications with court staff. Disgrace to the bench , should be removed.

Extremist. More zealous than the State often. Seems to enjoy handing down sentences that hurt people.
