Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY12171
20 Years ago I tried a case of a dying client before this horrendous Insurance Company handmaid. It was during 911 and the only thing worse then the terrorism was this disaster. She accosted by client for "hanging his head" when he was given a 6 year prognosis by an expert, and then polled the jury . My client died 6 years to the day of cancer his doctor missed. I have held the story of this nightmare Judge for all these years. She was biased and I remain convinced she was totally in with the defense bar. The hag should never have been a judge and is a total disgrace to the bench and bar. I hope there is a special place in hell for a Judge who is far uglier inside then outside and she is very ugly inside. Run as far away from this disgrace as possible.

this woman is off the charts; do not i repeat do not ever allow you or a client to be subject to her "analysis" - she is uninformed; under handed and is overall a disgrace to the bench - she needs to be put out to pasture.

This woman is a disgrace to the bench and bar. I tried a case before her during 911. We were the only case where a mistrial was not granted. During expert testimony my client a distinguish law professor put his head down when the expert testified that he would die within 6 years. She tore into my client screaming that he was "acting" and then polled the jury while having the professor stood guard over by the Court officer.I felt like I was trying the case with two defense attorneys - one of whom was this Judge. The professor died 6 years to the date of prediction. I only hope and pray that somehow this monster finds herself with the same degree of disgrace she imparted during the trial. The case and Judge Branstan's horrid antics will haunt me forever. She is a biased shrew who has no place holding any public office. Shame Shame on her and the Court system which permits her to sit on the bench
