As a student studying criminal justice in undergrad, I had the pleasure of shadowing Judge Wright. While shadowing Wright, It quickly became clear that he is very intelligent concerning the law and he is very respectful to both sides of the room when court is in session. I now work in the pg circuit court and I believe Wright is over in the District. Looking forward to greeting the Judge again. If you are in college or law school and looking to shadow a Judge, you should send Judge Wright a request to his chambers.

Very fair and respectful to counsel. Good demeanor. He took the time to look up an obscure point of law in a trial I had with him to make sure his ruling was fair. Great addition to the PG bench.
