Very good judge. Good to both parties. Unbiased, knows the law, applies the law and crafts workable, appropriate solutions.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD2370
I was nervous trying a case in front of him because he was new to the bench at the time.
He wound up being the best judge I've ever tried a case in front of.
Yes, I won the case so I would seem bias, but I was impressed with his good disposition and fairness. Nothing worse than trying a case in front of a nasty judge and he was very pleasant, even my opposing counsel had good things to say about him.

He paid great attention to the facts in a long trial and "got" it.
He understands Maryland law quite well and as a former civil litigator he understands what lawyers are going through when trying a difficult civil case.
Would gladly try a case in front of him again.
