What others have said about Hon. Philip N. Tirabassi


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: MD4137
Judge Tirabassi seemed very disturbed entering the court room. He veiwed my client as beneath other defendants because of the case she was being charged with. Overall he had a very biased opinion from just reading the case notes judge tirabassi did not care to hear anything from my client in regards to what she was doing for her treatment and recovery. I also took it as a personal insult when he sentenced my client and I quote "you will go to jail when I see you again"

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD3880
One of the few judges nowadays who has actual experience in private litigation practice. Has a VERY dry sense of humor so sometimes you're not sure if he's joking (he probably is). I always enjoy being in front of him. His years of experience in actual practice of law give him knowledge of civil litigation and he knows the juggling act that lawyers have to do every day.
