He is the worst judge ever. He totally ruined my life with a horrible ruling. He favors women, no matter what the evidence may support. He should not be on the bench.

What a stupid system, an old man and not a jury deciding a families fate.He actually didnt use his power to bypass due process, although many judges do that in divorce court. I found his decisions according to the law. Unfortunately, the law is layers of rights being stripped away. He should NEVER recomend law guardian dominik Veraldi again. He is without ethics.

Totally ignorant of parental rights.
Seems no matter how many times he's reversed on appeal, he does not learn.
