I can not prove one way or the other but my divorce seems to have been influenced by my ex-wife's relationship to a Harford County deputy.

Judge Waldron is easily manipulated from outside the bench. He gathers information on cases before they arrive in front of him from sources that are not reliable. He does not care about true facts or civil rights. He puts things on the record to cover his own back that are nothing more then gossip. You can not allow him talk too much or it becomes a nightmare. He can twist the fainst evidence and turn it into a mountain. Term limits are good for everyone!!!

Very even keel, always calm.

Civil Litigation - Private

Win or lose, it is a pleasure to work before this kind, patient, intelligent human being.

Absolutely scrupulous, congenial to all, professional, evenhanded and fair. This man is a role model for the judges of Maryland, nay, the entire profession. Kudos! Judge Waldron is a reason to lift judicial term limits in Maryland. However, there are so few like him that we'd have to suffer an army of fools in order to keep one good judge.
