What others have said about Hon. Carmen Velasquez


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY7784
a judge who does christmas shopping on the court computer while medical witnesses are testifying at trial. comes late to court, has no idea how to broker a settlement. a cursory understanding of the rules of evidence at best.

I wish we had more judges like Judge Velasquez. She is even-tempered, cordial, does her best to research the law, has a knowledgeable and helpful law secretary/court attorney, and does her best to be fair. But best of all, she lets you try your case. I hope to appear before her again. And I write this despite losing my case before her.

Judge Velasquez is a pleasure to appear before, she assists in conferencing cases and as a result often after the conference a settlment can be reached. Unlike other judges she allows you to present your case and do your trial.
