What others have said about Hon. Walter Koprowski, Jr.



Comment #: NJ2844
Judge Koprowski has demonstrated superior jurisprudence through a myriad of complex judicial variables. It was surprising to read negative comments about him on this site. Then I realized that they were dissatisfied litigants.
No wonder. He didn't rule in their favor!


Comment #: NJ2843
Rating:Not Rated
He has a pulse, not a heart for dealing with people's lives!

Rating 3


Comment #: NJ2660
Judge Koprowski demonstrated a very prudent and insightful approach to a complicated lawsuit.


Comment #: NJ2659
Clearly unfavorable to pro se litigants.


Comment #: NJ2513
Judge Koprowski has the rare capacity to grasp complex litigation and apply judicial scrutiny to complaints that lack tangible substance. Essex County and New Jersey are fortunate to have the service of such a capable man on the Bench.


Comment #: NJ655
Very biased in state guardianship issues. If the por se litigant is from out of state be ware this judge does not follow the law and willingly use judicial intimidation and retaliation to suppress justice. Evasive on answering questions to help determine jurisdiction or status of the court Authority. Will willfully exceed authority and fine Pro se litigants to obstruct a fair hearing or trial.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ191
Judge Koprowski lacks the intelligence, skill, and work ethic to be a judge in any court. He is completely disinterested in managing a case effectively or rendering a thoughtful considered decision on anything. Appearing before him one would think that he has never litigated a case as either a lawyer or a judge.
