Knows the law. Will work with you for scheduling purposes. Don't be late!If convicted, a tough sentencer. A good person that will listen to all arguements.

By-the book and courteous. Slightly pro-prosecution. A great judge for new attorneys who are just learning their craft.

A true professional. One of the best judges I've ever appeared before. Will stay completely down the middle. Will sentence the truly guilty harshly within the law, but will show compassion and common sense with the technically guilty.

Pro-prosecution. Decisive and consistent. Great temperament. Seems like a good guy.

Judge McGuire is more likely to set bail and make high offers than a lot of judges, but is very fair to both sides at trial.
