What others have said about Hon. Anne K. Albright



Comment #: MD7130
She was unable to be impartial. She discounted important evidence and established facts. Her knowledge of mental health issues was insulting, she implied that a schizophrenia was a temporary condition. She expressed her personal opinions with no fact=based sightings. She clearly discounted the well being of the child whose custody was at stake never once asking to speak to the child who was clearly old enough to know why he does not wish to be with his father.


Comment #: MD7126
She didn't appear able to be impartial. She did not listen to or regard any of the facts or evidence our side presented and seemed to go out of her way to discount clear cut evidence if it went counter to her preconceived opinion. Her ruling left me without custody of my children when I was clearly the primary care-giver for the last two years. I am a stay at home dad and she seemed to not recognize that the concept of a stay at home dad is a real one. Disturbing.

This judge has both good and bad aspects about her. She tries to be even-handed and fair, and I absolutely love her demeanor in court. She should hold seminars on courtroom behavior. That said, I am less than impressed with her legal scholarship.


Comment #: MD6498
I have observed many cases in the Montgomery Circuit Court. Honorable Anne Albright was fair and impartial. She was very knowledgeable about the law. I agree with comments from the previous litigant; it was clear she cared about doing what was right. There is at least one judge in the Montgomery County Circuit Court that would be better off learning from her example.

Couldn't ask for a better judge. Probably the best in the county. Very evenhanded and hardworking. Really cares about the litigants and doing what is right.

Whether you "win" or "not", this Judge assures you of a fair hearing. She is adept at "listening" and at the same time is always courteous to all -- lawyer and litigant alike. You know that you will be treated fairly and you will be heard.

Once she makes up her mind, she can't be wrong no matter what the evidence is. She acts professional, but is arrogant and clueless about criminal law. Her demeanor is somewhere between not personal and just rude.

She is smart, well prepared, respectful of all in the courtroom. Her demeanor could be an example to some of her colleagues, who show short tempers.
