Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:1.0
Comments:
If you are a plaintiff with a lawyer, you have it made! He does not take time to review the evidence and doesn’t care. Arrogant and dismissive. If he runs for office in 2022, please vote against him.

Very unfair, biased, and illogical. This judge ignored real valid evidence and sided with teenaged friends who conspired to lie together. Very poor representation of what the justice system should be.

This judge's lack of understanding of the law, current events, and the county he serves in is appalling. He loses his cool and is incredibly arrogant on the bench. Worst judge on Anne Arundel District Court bench.

I went before this judge on a civil matter. He did not follow the law at all. My lawyer was appalled at the outcome, and was speechless at this judge's inability.
