Great person and judge who has a solid knowledge of the law, prepares before taking the bench and, also importantly, treats the attorneys and litigants with respect. We most definitely need more judge's like her!

I appeared before this judge for a jury trial earlier this year. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. She allows the attorneys to try their case without unnecessary interruption, and isn't afraid to make tough, but fair rulings on the evidence. All in all, she is one of the best judges before whom I've ever tried a case in Civil Court--and I've been trying cases for over thirty-five years!

This is a fantastic judge! One of the jewels of Queens Civil Court! Why isn't she is Supreme Court already? She is better than many of the judges in that court. She is even-tempered, timely with her decisions, smart and always has a sense of humor. Generally, she is knowledgeable about the law, but whatever she is unsure of, she will quickly (and accurately) research. I have not always prevailed before her, but she is definitely one of the best judges I've appeared before.
