What others have said about Hon. Michael F. McGuire


Court Staff

Comment #: NY10953
extremely biased towards women.ignores evidence of child abuse and rewards abusers.Worst judge ever for any domestic violence victim.What I have seen in that court room cannot be unseen.


Comment #: NY10588
I am witness along with 2 others that Judge McGuire took custody from a parent for documenting abuse who was told to document the child in writing by a senior CPS investigator for their own protection.It was allowed to be called child abuse by the opposing attorney who claimed taking pictures of abuse is abuse because the child is aware of their picture being taken.Medical records of the burns proving abuse were called seeking to alienate the other parent!

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY10013
I have been practicing for over 25 years and I have never had a better Judge. The Judge and his staff worked hard, knew the law, researched the law and were professional and polite. I tried a med mal and lost 5-1. I still have to say that this Judge and his staff were beyond excellent. I wish every part ran like this one does.
