What others have said about Hon. Mark S. Chandlee


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD5839
Judge Chandlee is a very compassionate, bright, and even-handed judge. He understands the issues in front of him, and is willing to craft solutions that are fair to both sides. He does try to bend over backwards though to give flexibility to a side that is struggling with presenting a case. That's a good thing if it's an unsophisticated litigant that is just trying to have his or her day in court.

Probation or Pretrial Officer

Comment #: MD5719
Great judge. He really cares about what he does.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD3061
Absolutely phenomenal judge. He is painstakingly fair, patient with pro se litigants, cordial and friendly to all, and holistic in his approach. As a former private practice attorney, he understands the myriad factors involved in managing a case, and is willing to be creative and flexible when necessary. Definitely not one to value "the rule" over "the outcome." He makes practicing before him a genuine pleasure.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

This judge is one of the best appointments ever made by Governor O'Malley.
