Sharp as a tack & smart as a whip -- don't be fooled by the (often hilarious) eccentricities, he doesn't miss a thing.

What a disgrace. Have you ever heard of a court that won't hold a telephone conference? Every attempt to resolve the most banal matters in a manner that avoids time and cost for the parties and court is rebuffed. The entire Queens County courthouse operation is disgusting.

A true technician of the law.

The court system should observe his methods of operation and implement them throughout the court system.

It is both an honor and pleasure for the court staff that work with him.

Very entertaining nice to start around 11:30 but if you got to get out of court he takes a long with each side. He can write and he does think!

As far as his legal abillities go, he seems to actually pay attention, and gives each side ample opportunity to present their case and is usually able to discuss the relevant caselaw. And hey, his calendar calls are more entertaining than most. His antics vacillate between funny and downright wierd. Unfortunately he occasionally likes to make examples of people, but most of the time its just his constant, eccentric, running commentary.

Lunatic. Absolute lunatic. Asked me where I bought my shoes during a trial IN FRONT OF THE JURY because "My lady would really like them." To clarify though, it was so bizarre I didn't feel "harassed" he also conducted the trial in sunglasses and penny loafer with no socks and his feet up.
