Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD6807
Did not bother to read the motions and supporting exhibits. New judge with an inadequate understanding of the law.


Comment #: MD6418
His rulings in my case were quickly everturned on appeal for their obviously flawed legal reasoning.I didn't feel I received a just or comprehensive hearing from his court

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD6164
I defended a complicated appeal of a District Ct judgment before him. I was very pleased to find that Judge Geller had read the transcript, briefs as well as the cases cited by each side AND had found other other cases which spoke to the issue.


Comment #: MD5879
smart, fair, discerning.


Comment #: MD5838
excellent/ finally helped someone achieve justice after nearly 4 years..ruled fairly and justly...partially restored my faith in the system and the possibility for an impoverished person who was greatly wronged to attain justice through the system... as administered by an intelligent judge

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD5573
He read everything and was very prepared. He let everyone make their record and was very patient.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD4325
Had not read the documents filed. Was heavily biased toward defendant in civil case. It was apparent that his decision was made based on bias, and not the merits any argument. If you represent a plaintiff in a civil case, do not expect a fair hearing from this judge.
