What others have said about Hon. Marcia J. Sikowitz



Comment #: NY7760
I attended a hearing in support of a friend. I found her nasty, inattentive, biased, dismissive, and short tempered. She made quick work of my friend's eviction case not pausing for a minute to consider the landlord's predaliction for fraud. She seemed to accommodate the landlord's lawyer's competentous and inappropriate antics and disrespect while shutting down my friend's soft spoken and respectful Africian American lawyer. I had never been in a courtroom before and found the experience with this judge's demeanor, judicial procedure, and lack of consideration to be profoundly disturbing. Don't know how she sleeps at night.

biased, playing favors.

Civil Litigation - Private

She is a terrible judge. I represent tenants, and every time I go before her, she acts sarcastic, condescending and angry. It's as if once I open my mouth and start arguing in favor of the tenant, she shuts me down in a nasty manner. Her understanding of the law is tenuous. I've heard her act similarly towards pro se tenants.
