Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9568
I have been in front of Judge Hagler now on four separate occasions on the same Article 78 case against NYC. He seems to be truthful, honest and of high integrity. He has always read the submissions before the hearing except on one occasion. On that occasion, he rescheduled our hearing because the submissions had not made it to his file, so he had not read. He has been concerned about following the law and makes diligent efforts to do this. Very much appreciate this judge, especially in comparison to other New York judges who have frequently been disappointments. He cuts to the chase, meaning the most important issues, and does not seem to give NYC lawyers any unduly beneficial assistance. So I think he is a GREAT judge to get.

Note that Hon. Hagler is a JSC and not a JHO and has been for quite some time now. I had an appearance before Judge Hagler on 10/2/17. Although it was split decision, neither side getting all it wanted that day, Justice Hagler was extremely well-prepared and organized, understood the case fully from all angles, and really helped the parties to steer the case to a resolution. Both sides appreciated his efforts.
