Unfortunately, I cant find anything good to say about him. While I don't think he is an inherently bad person, he is a terrible judge. Extremely slow and unable to make decisions. It took me three days just to pick a jury in front of him. His clerk, who looks like a homeless woman, is dumber than bricks and they basically got every decision wrong. A horrible place to be sent for trial. Get out of it if you can - he's also terrible on sentencing.

Terrible judge. I recently appeared before him for the first time and he inserted himself into a complex matter without knowing much about the case and was very difficult and combative. Every attorney I have spoken with since who has appeared before him has nothing good to say about him. Beware and stay away if you can.

This Judge has a seriuos case of "black robe disease". Discourteous and obnoxious.
The previous commentator states..."If you are new to him or have raised his ire, he will punish you. Once you've 'earned' your way through a few battles with him, it's better."
What a joke that any attorney should be subjected to such treatment.
Additionally, he has always been employed by the public sector and doesn't understand private practice. He is a disgrace and should be removed from the bench.
