If you're a defense lawyer in his part, good luck. This judge is very pro plaintiff and will bend over backwards to help the plaintiffs' bar. Also, it appears he is becoming increasingly unhinged. I recently witnessed him screaming his head off for apparently no good reason. He is ill-tempered, the opposite of what a good judge should be.

Judge Danziger is a pretty nice guy and always has a good joke up his sleeve. That being said, I wish he spent more time making rulings and trying to settle cases then schmoozing with his friends. He clearly has his favorite lawyers and loves just shooting the breeze with them and "holding court" by telling jokes. He even gets annoyed when you ask for rulings! Judge Danziger has a pro-plaintiff bias, but it is even more extreme when the plaintiff's lawyer is a friend of his. He also yells a decent amount at the lawyers, which can be frustrating - especially when he doesn't even make a ruling after a 10 minute tirade!

I cannot recommend this judge with high confidence as he prefers socializing over judging.

Not a very bright or impartial Judge. Does favors for friends and ignores justice and the truth. Forget intellectual arguments, they fly over his head

Truly a pleasure to appear before, Judge Danziger is involved, attentive and even tempered. Very fair-minded.
