Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9830
This jurist has a good judicial temperament. Counsel will not win all trial motions (no one should) but Justice Wade will give you a fair hearing and allow a full record to be made. What was most impressive was her clear, slow and careful reading of the charges to the jury at the end of the case.

Lazy, makes up rules, treats lawyers with disrespect, clearly doesn't like her job, and her court attorney has a terrible attitude as well. Walking into her courtroom, you immediately get the feeling that she doesn't want you there and has no interest in reading your papers or acting with commonsense. An affirmative action hire.

Comment #: NY8812
this judge seems to just want to end a plaintiffs case to get it off her calendar and to receive a high disposition rate. Does not care about attorneys and their clients. she has been in the system too long. She does not understand the private practitioner

J.Wade is very dismissive and does not listen to the parties. It appears that her primary interest is to have a high disposition rate. She therefore constantly dismisses cases. She gives an uneven amount of defference to defense atorneys. Unforunately she exhibits that she has not read the papers submitted to her. Not a fair and knowledgeable jurist.

Appears not to have read or understood read trial memos on the most elemental aspects of evidence. Even defense counsel were shocked at how partial she was to them.

Pleasant, patient and treated all counsel with respect. We settled before trial with her assistance.

Comment #: NY7387
She is a very respectful and pleasant individual. She takes an active role in trying to facilitate settlement. Her rulings were right on the money. She takes sufficient time in reading the charges to the jury so they can actually understand them. It was a pleasure to appear before the judge.
