What others have said about Hon. Margaret Parisi-McGowan


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY8805
Completely biased against attractive women and ignores the facts of people's career prospects. Bullies and threatens professional licenses to allow professionals to be further victimized by their emotionally abusive spouses and doesn't get that the legal profession has a glut of attorneys and six figure jobs don't go to people who didn't go to T1 law schools. Doesn't listen to facts at all and seems to support Mama's boys.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY7024
Coerces settlements by telling litigants she will rule in certain ways after hearing attorneys at her conference table.

I think she is one of worst judge's there is in queens.Not once would she hear my statements defending myself reguarding my children.She is very unfair to biological parent I personally hope she gets thrown out from the court system.This experience being in her court room ruined my life,I plan to get justice for me and family and the many other lives she destroyed!!!
