I have been before Judge LoPresto many times when he was a civil court judge. He handled many conferences well. He has a quiet demeanor but makes a decision and does not waiver.
At trial he did a good job making rulings and giving us time to bring witnesses. He did not try to settle the case and did not twist arms when the case could have possibly been settled before trial. Otherwise a fair judge and let's the jury decide the case.

Terrible judge. Unfair and pro prosecution. No compassion.
