Allowed fraud in a case by the defendant in case number MON-DC-4220-16. Had a case and there was a trial that should not have happened.

How is it even possible this person is a judge? He barely knows the law, doesn't follow the Court Rules. My husband is an attorney and when I tell him what I see daily he tells me to call the cops

His decisions are biased, prejudiced and illegal. Ordering a wife to remain in the same house for her entire life despite the husband not paying her a penny is what he ordered. He should be removed from the bench. He does not understand how matrimonial law works and rules for the husbands, despite their physical abuse and restaining orders, all of the time.

They need to put this judge back into family court. He, I believe is the only judge in Monmouth County who is not bias. He is the only judge willing to be gender neutral regarding custody and issues regarding equitable distribution in family court matters.


Comment #: NJ1941
I believe this judge is the only one in Monmouth County who actually was unbiased in family courts. I believe he was removed from family courts because he did not use gender as a basis for custody.We need more judges who are like this judge.
