What others have said about Hon. Sharon N. DeVries



Comment #: NH93
Very Caring and fair to everyone.


Comment #: NH89
I am stunned at the outright bias she displays. She ignores evidence, doesn't allow evidence to be introduced, relies on facts not in evidence, insults people openly in court and violates the constitutional rights of litigants. Why is she in this position?


Comment #: NH84
Very biased and favors certain plaintiffs.

No class at all. Ridicules others in the court room in front of everyone.

Definitely a bully type person

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NH82
This judge has been around for a while. She started as a part-time judge, pulled the right levers and is now drawing a full paycheck, traveling the circuit. She has very little real-life experience, and no legal scholarship at all. When she tries, it's painful to watch.
