good best

Judge Zoll is one of the best criminal judges in Queens in every way: integrity, compassion, respect--even humor. It was one of best moments of my career to conduct a bench trial
before him. He treated the People and defense equally, fairly and with a deep understanding of the facts. The Judge came into the case with a tough view of the allegations but with intellectual curiosity. It was very interesting to watch the formation of the outcome as the judge's appreciation of the facts evolved. A pleasure!

World’s first and only rock star jurist who did prove that the laws correctly read, interpreted and applied requires every jurist to always believe in true honesty to be on the right side of the law correctly applied supported by true evidence for “arriving at the truth” blessing lawful gains as Justice, never believe in true hypocrisy to be on the wrong side of the law misapplied supported by false evidence to “conceal the truth” blessing unlawful gains by culpable crossing of the solid double yellow lines between the two sides of the law, always order enough therapeutic restitution from the predators to the prey for overdue therapeutic rehabilitation of their lives-put-on-hold before, during and after due process of law misapplied, and thus always honor the One Creator’s Self-Healing-Scripture ending for good the unforgiving evil cycle of wrongdoing in law and fact.

Judge Zoll is a very good judge. He is smart, fair and very knowledgable on the law. What else can you ask for! My client waived a jury and the co- defendant went with a jury. Judge Zoll read his verdict before the jury came back with its verdict.
Both defendants found not guilty.

A fair and competent judge. I did a jury trial before him and he gave me a fair trial and made correct rulings. You could do much worse in Queens! He's also probably the only former legal aid lawyer on the Queens bench.
