What others have said about Hon. Ronald E. Bookbinder



Comment #: NJ119
This judge was totally unable to recognize parental alienation when it appeared in his courtroom, back in 1993. He did however describe what would happen if one party continued the legal process over and over - using all of their long-term savings, and home equity loans, a process that would take away from their kid's college tuition funds. As Judge Bookbinder did not recognize this early, nor do what was in the child's best interest, this case was passed from judge to judge, over the years, and was not in the child's best interest. When are judges going to be educated on this frequent occurrence? When are the children's best interests going to be recognized?

Bookbinder is a great guy and everybody loves him. However, they love him because he never makes a decision that will get anyone angry. That can be frustrating. But he's a caring guy who never puts a lawyer down.

Judge Bookbinder is a nice person and he makes all attorneys and litigants comfortable. He is a true expert in local government. Judge Bookbinder truly likes people and he tries to serve justice. He is excellent in settlement conferences because you know he is stating his honest opinion - not a line just to make you settle. He is naturally good at resolving disputes and therefore does not have to actually try many.
