One of the hardest working, balanced, and professional judges I have every had the pleasure of appearing before. His ken of the law is matched only by his zeal for fairness and pursuit of knowledge.

Super trial judge. Excellent experience trying case before him. Worked hard, treated everyone with respect and fairly, was consistent and knew the law. Hope he gets an opportunity to try more civil cases.

Judge Brown and his staff were fantastic to work with. There were numerous scheduling issues with experts for both sides, and the judge accommodated everyone. He did so while still running an extremely busy criminal calendar, and making sure that the jury's time was not being wasted. His rulings were well reasoned and did not favor either side. I do not try many cases in. Orange County, but would be happy to be assigned to Judge Brown's Part for all of them, fully knowing my client will be afforded a fair trial before a fair trial before a judge who understands the law.

Caveal, the jury found that the defendant was 75% responsible for the happening of the incident. My review is not based on the outcome.
I was supposed to be on trial before a different Judge, who was tied up with a trial. My client's matter was transferred to Judge Brown, and it was the best draw I could ask for. He is hard working, smart, and pleasant to work with. A trifecta for any trial attorney. I look forward to my next trial befor him.

Even though Judge Brown has only been on the bench for a little over a year, a recently retired judge who appeared in his court said he should be teaching other judges on courtroom demeanor. He listens to both sides and considers all arguments before making a decision. He recognizes that there are victim's rights, but he is also fair to the defendants who appear before him. He even acknowledges the people who come to watch the cases in his court-letting them know that it is an open court and they are always welcome to watch. Judge Brown is an asset to Orange County and the court that he presides over.
