Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: MD7979
does not follow the law. allowed civil case to continue even when defendant was not served, and the case was over 17 years old frightening to have him on the bench


Comment #: MD7854
This judge was unfair. one sided. Needs to be removed from the bench. waited for him to make a decision on a situation. took three months.

Biased toward pro se and woman as well as completely unknowledgeable of family law and property settlements. Just awful.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: MD6628
Judge Davy has an even temperament, but has a clear, strong bias toward men over women, whether it be attorney or client. His knowledge of family law is weak, but presumably this will improve over time

Simply does not do the preparation work. Intellectually dishonest. I have had repeated negative experiences with this judge. Seems to prefer certain"insiders" and is quick to draw judgments even before hearing from both sides.
