Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: MD8429
On of the worst judges I have ever been in front of. Screams at attorneys. No impartiality. Blatantly sexist. Should not be on the bench.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: MD7618
Since I only had one issue before him, I can only rate my experience. I had a small criminal trial in front of him. I thought he was very fair and could see through the lies from the States witness. I would hope to believe he is not prejudicial like that all the time unlike most judges. Most judges go by if you are there you are guilty unless you can prove 100% you are not. Just like when they use a witness for the State to testify against you and they give him am-unity to get you. They are doing it to save there read end so they will say anything.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD5608
Judge Maloney is a hard worker, has good judgment and demonstrates even temperament. He shows respect to both the trial lawyers and litigants and gives everyone a fair trial.
