One of the few judges that actually understands the CPLR and current case law. You never have to worry about trying your case in front of this judge = he does not interfere with your presentation and is is fair-handed.

Judge Troia is one of the few workers in the courthouse - I guess he is trying his best to resolve cases (as to impress the OCA Ivory Tower numbers crunchers(. He is young and he treats lawyers as a peer. Respectful and courteous, never assuming. He was a defense lawyer for many years (and tends to evaluate cases a bit lower than most judges), but aside from that, he really wants to help people.

awesome man...worked hard as a lawyer, a law secretary, and now as judge. He is making his bones in Richmond County and would like to become Acting Supreme and/or Supreme.

He really sticks his neck out to do the right thing. You can talk to him to make things work.

Judge Trioa is well-prepared for each case that is assigned to his part. He understands the cases and knows the law. He treats all attorneys and litigants before him with respect -- and, more importantly, listens to both sides. His rulings, whether you agree with them or not, are, for the most part, correct.

A great legal secretary became an excellent judge. He is knowledgeable, courteous, fair and knows the law. The political hacks and committees finally got one right!

I have appeared before this judge both in civil and criminal matters. It is very rare that someone can handle both...but this judge can. I was just as impressed with appearing before him in civil court as I was in criminal court. It is also refreshing to see a judge interested in the law and that does his own work. Kudos to a real judge!
