Totally biased. Lacks understanding of job. Doesn't make decisions based on facts. Uses law to make informed decisions.

Got just about everything wrong in a matter that involved about 5 trial dates (approximately 1 hour each date -- so inefficient!) His decision, however, was not completely imbalanced. Again, though, he got most of the facts -- even undisputed facts -- wrong.

Unfair and biased, to the point of ignoring the factual avoidance of the law by the opposing party... one might question the relationship of the Judge with the Respondents attorney as this happened repeatedly.
How can a child support Judge order child support payment while ignoring a motion to produce FILED tax returns?! vs. PHONY/unfiled tax returns presented by Respondent?

Actually Hon. Lew. Borofsky has a tough job, I think he knows all dads are not bad but the system paints men into the corner. Example wife has man arrested, man gets criminal record, loses job. TRUE. Then demands more money based on capacity to earn, Lew. B. seems to understand the cases are not all about the victim, the child being neglected when the now labeled dead beat dad cant see his kid. LB has seen cases he is just sick of them., he is not a bad person he is just tired of it, he cant fix the problems just like the dads do, he does seem to impartially always find a way to keep the case going without a decision although that is just agony for the dads usually that are the ones being tormented by men who can no longer get jobs because what sicko women do to them., lb knows court is not black and white., there are two sides to every story. Look up LB, and you will see his has never really hurt a father he knows is stuck and trying even though it may not be clear on paper.

Guy is an idiot. Total depressive character but who can blame him he is a guy who spends his days dealing with divorce issues! But just a total ahole and miserable human being. Further, and most importantly, the guy cannot do math at all....these cases go on for so long he just makes a concluding order without reviewing all his files and evidence submitted. another disgrace to the system

Horrible, cuts you off doesn't want to hear any facts. Predisposed decision and sees you as GUILTY before innocent. He is a mockery of justice and enjoys torturing men regardless of their circumstances. Sides with women because he could care less and is hardend from years of the job. HE has no interest in compassion and only hurts men.

Judge Lewis A. Borofsky is a miserable person who hates his job. I've been pulled through the ringer for two years, trying to get child support from my ex-wife (who lives out-of-state), and I can't get that lazy S.O.B. to get off his butt to do the right thing. It's painful. What ever happened to "the best interest of the child?" If the situation was reversed, I would be in jail for non-payment of child support. This piece of work has no business being a magistrate. He needs to be impeached, and others need to file a complaint against him. Judge Borofsky is the worst judge I have seen in practice.

If left to up support magistrate lewis borofsky children would not eat. The "little man" is lazy and could care less about the well being of the children that are effected by his decision. borofsky has no business being a support magistrate and he should be removed from family court.
