What others have said about Hon. Arthur Bergman


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2848
He showed bias in favor of a large local firm. It seemed as if he was courting favor with my adversary's firm for a post-retirement mediator's position. He was discourteous and sarcastic towards me and my client.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2718
He was fair, knew the law, and was always courteous. My only complaint is that it took him a couple of months to decide post-trial motions after argument. He attributed it to health issues, so maybe it's not a recurring thing. I'd previously had motions before him with no delay issues.
You can do much worse for a judge. Much, much worse.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2630
Extraordinarily bright and unfailingly courteous jurist.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ1452
He is an intelligent judge, but lacks diligence and disregards the impact of delays on a litigation. He can be unfair, and he does exhibit bias in favor of larger firms.
