Comment #: NY13019
Judge Sherman is one of the best around. I've litigated over 50 cases before him. He goes the extra mile and will do what he can to resolve cases. Very fair to both sides. Agree with the other comments, Judge Sherman is the model other judges should strive for.

Judge Sherman is an extraordinary judge. He is the hardest working and most effective judge at getting cases settled I have experienced in my 25+n years of handling personal injury cases. He also treats attorneys and parties respectfully and professionally. A true gem in the NYS Court system.

Justice Sherman is the model of what a judge should be. He deals with medical malpractice mostly involving the NYCHHC and does a great job. He understands the issues and he works to get a case settled. He's smart, industrious and fair.

Justice Sherman is a highly competent and very hard working judge who understands the issues involved in litigating cases. He excels at resolving cases by his relentless work ethic and wonderful temperament. He is exactly the type of judge that we need in our state.

Judge Sherman who routinely presides over a trial part has more dedication to and appreciation for his very important position and role in a system that is fraught with inefficiencies and a total lack of economy. Along with his patience, empathy, natural skills and intelligence, he has made an enormous effort with much success in bringing resolution and final disposition to difficult and complex litigation without the need for a further costly and protracted trial. He is tireless and genuine.

Judge Sherman is the hardest working Judge I have come across. He will settle a case on his own. He conferences through lunch, does not stop for the bathroom or to eat or drink. He has the correct temperament even when delivering bad news, he jumped on the phone with an insurance adjuster to settle a case. Like nothing I have ever come across. Kudos to Judge Sherman and his hard working staff at Kings Supreme JCP

Judge Sherman is one of the best jurists in Kings County. He works really hard, settles cases and is very fair. A credit to the bench.
