Comment #: NY9303
Judge Douglas J.Lerose is a pillar of integrity and honor. I’ve seen first hand that he simply can’t be swayed to go in the favor of anything that is unjust. He is a rare and dying breed who goes strictly by the book and follows every rule to a t. It’s for this reason thag I fully and wholeheartedly endorse this man with flying colors. He’s shown himself to be everything that the US justice system was created for. The best of the best ! And I’m not just writing this because things went in my favor, Bc they did not. I am paying forward what I witnessed in Judge Lerose’s courtroom. This is a judge with a heart and a conscience. He’s not ever going to just follow the crowd. This is a man who does his research and delivers justice in a kind and respectful way. He should be a judge forever because theee are not enough like him
At all.


Comment #: NY8952
Hard to read this judge. Very easy-going and collegial with attorneys. Very calm and relaxed courtroom. Very kind-hearted toward indigent defendants who use his Part. Respectful toward all. But if the collegiality breaks down and it's a fight not clear what his temperament is. Hard to guess, but appears to be comfortable as a cog processing understandable 'guilt' not a crusader. Just a guess.
