A great judge- smart, fair and pleasant- too bad he's all the way in Riverhead- they should move him west.

It is always a pleasure to have a case assigned to this wonderful Judge. Evenhanded, very smart and extremely industrious.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY5096
After fifteen years of practice as a trial attorney, I have only come across maybe six or seven judges who are great. Judge Mayer is one of them. He is fair, hard-working, knowledgeable, respectful of the attorneys, and he actually cares about doing a good job -- a rarity among judges these days. Bravo!

Comment #: NY5008
It was a heroic decision to hold the People to the letter of the law and preclude forfeiture of a vehicle from a non-criminal defendant, absent some indicia of proof -- an allegation at least -- that the non-criminal owner of a vehicle aided, condoned or permitted the drunk driving of his vehicle by a criminal defendant. (And a pro se claimant as well.) That's why you're on the bench -- to stand up for those without the means to stand up for themselves. A great judge!

Very good trial judge. Evenhanded, firm and keeps control of his court. Great assignment if you have a "difficult" adversary.
