To those who may not be aware of her excessively arbitrary and capricious antics and shell games with her cherry picked appointed cronies; BEWARE - danger lurks hidden behind her Wizard-of-Oz-Like False Veil of Justice!

A true travesty of justice. Hang on to your wallet when you enter this judge's courtroom. Between her and her cronies, you will be penniless in no time flat. How can this obvious and blatant abuse of the criminal justice system be tolerated at any level, let alone this level? Gov. Christie.. how about stepping up on this one? She is a cancer in the NJ judicial system that has to go.

I have had the opportunity to observe this judges conduct from the bench and I am stunned at what I have seen and heard from her.
Anyone who has any court business should not seek justice here.

A moron. She is dumber than most litigants and thinks she is smart. Never could cut it as a lawyer. An associate in a firm for many years - they wouldn't make her a partner. She made it to the bench because she is female, and most lawyers hate her. Its one thing to be dumb, but quite another to think you were smart.
You are not.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ141
I recently had a trial that was before Judge McVeigh. She is a smart, practical, no-nonsense type of judge but she can be a little abrasive at times to both the parties and the attorneys that appear before her. She is also very inflexible on scheduling-related issues. Nonetheless, I like her style and work ethic and would not mind having a trial before her again.
