Thank you Judge Phillips. You are a very honorable man. I respect your authority and your power of true judgement. It is a rare thing,today, to come before a judge who actually remembers a defenfendant and follows an individual case to it's resolve.Thank you.


Comment #: MA466
An excellent, intelligent and fair Judge. If you're due in court at 9:00 AM, don't be late. he will default you, like he is suppose to! Works well with all parties in working out fair and adequate plea agreements.


Comment #: MA455
Gives minorities & especially minority woman defendants more favorable treatment than white defendants. Holds resentments that appear to cloud his judgement, holding higher bail requirements on lower level offenders versus other defendants with more detrimental charges if they are other than white.


Comment #: MA426
He is the rudest judge i ever seen in my life he passes judgment on everyone.sonething should of been done about him along time ago treating people like this


Comment #: MA420
My case was dismissed. He fined me $500 (not court costs) and because I could not pay it he had me incarcerated. I am a single mom of 2 currently battling Crohns, and he was informed of this.

There needs to be more of this going on about Judge Phillips. Let there be "justice" forreal.


Comment #: MA405
He's living proof that a sexual predator can be a lawyer and a judge and get away with it and still have a plaque on the wall with his picture engraved on it. He's the definition of a psychopath that abuses his power often screaming and yelling at minor offenders and handing out maximum sentences for 1st time offenders. He's the very definition of an unstable person, and has still been allowed to preside over a court of law for over 30 years. Its terrible when someone gets away with breaking the law because they're knowledgeable of it and have been appointed to an honorable position. There isn't one thing honorable about him, as any female co-worker who was sexually harrassed by him would say.


Comment #: MA280
Judge Phillips held me w/o bail in a nonviolent misdemeanor case. He let a sleazy prosecutor, Chris Markey, frame me with counterfeit evidence. Markey had written anonymous, crank letters to my ex-girlfriend, then ambushed me with them at arraignment to smear me as a fugitive and stalker. Phillips wouldn't let me speak. He didn't want to hear that the evidence was counterfeit, and he forced me to be misrepresented by the worst lawyer in MA, who'd been run out of the RI courts for persistent incompetence. A week later, Phillips accepted still more fake evidence directly from my accuser, read it in chambers w/o letting the defense know what was in the envelope, then returned the "evidence" to the complainant instead of entering it into the record. The defense never learned what was in that 9"X12" envelope she handed him. Also, that court record has been tampered with. Original court records are missing and a cassette copy sold to me was drastically cut up and hand much exculpatory testimony deleted.
