Judge Stansfield genuinely tries to be fair and to hear all sides. However, he holds archaic views in child custody issues.

Was recently before Judge Stansfiel for the first time in an extended trial. It was the most delightful time I have had in trial in years. Win, lose or draw, I would be happy to try all of my future cases in his court.
