Such a great judge! Wish other judges were more like him and Judge Zugibe - the two best judges in Rockland County. They treat attorneys with respect and decency, no matter their gender or ethnicity, unlike some of the other judges there.

Judge Thorsen was a pleasure to try a case before, he was fair and very easy to work with and respectful. Great staff also.

A pleasure, having practiced for 20 years it is unfortunate that this seems to be the exception instead of the rule. If I had this judge on every one of my cases the pleasure of practicing law would be just that...a pleasure. No attitude, no nonsense intimidation tactics. With times as difficult as they are he doesn’t compound those problems by making an already difficult profession more difficult-
