What others have said about Hon. Andrew P. Bivona



Comment #: NY6552
The Hon. Judge Andrew Bivona was able to see through ALL the lies and misinformation provided by my Ex-husband and his equally nefarious attorney, Michael Meth. Judge Bivona gave them all the rope they wanted to hang themselves and awarded my children and me more than I ever hoped for. I am so thankful for Judge Bivona's experience, professionalism, and ethics. With Judge Bivona, Michael Meth was NOT able to sneak in misinformation to the Judge without the knowledge of the other attorneys and Michael Meth was not able to engage in Ex-Parte communications or "closed-door" meetings to gain an unfair advantage.

This man ruined my son's life and mine. My son's father is abusing my son. Even though I proved that he was being abused, Judge Bivona won't allow supervised visits, and now I risk losing sole custody of my son to his abusive father because I can't let my son go unsupervised. My son is only two years old, and it is our duty to protect the innocent, but not Judge Bivona's duty: he called me a liar at the hearing before the trial when I asked for supervised visits and had medical evidence to show, but he would not look at it or allow me to talk. Then, when the trial came and he could not deny that my son was abused, he said that anyone could have done it. He is a disgrace to justice.
