The dishonorable Judge Smith is the meanest man ever to set foot on the face of the earth. Therefore, let's not retain the devil's devil at the next opportune election in our home, St. Louis County.

Judge Smith is irrational, biased and is constantly tardy at the expense of 'the people' paying their lawyers by the minute.

This judge avoids trials, does not enforce his own orders, and does not review the facts before coming to his own biased towards male decisions. Family Law is being sabotaged by the mean-spirited judge.

This judge is mean-spirited and capricious. He does not have the requisite character and virtue to be a judge. In my experience, he is heavily biased towards female litigants, and seems to hate Fathers. If you are a Father, avoid this individual, if you value visitation and fair child support.

Something's obviously wrong in America when you have a judge like this who doesn't aspire toward wisdom and grace, but instead wallows in low-minded folly. This judge is so cynical and perverse that he would actually sucker punch that blindfolded woman holding a scale of justice. Anyone who has appeared before him knows this is not hyperbole.

Judge Smith is an extremely complex person who probably would be diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
If he dislikes a lawyer he thinks nothing about harming that lawyers' client. Also very hostile to female litigants. A real tyrant. Hard to imagine how he has survived removal.
Scary mean as he smiles at you while inflicting injustice on your hapless client

This Judge is difficult, makes ignorant comments and is overall just not helpful to the bench or the profession. It would help if he didn't believe he knew more than any other person on the planet.
