What others have said about Hon. Alan C. Marin


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY11314
I like him. He's pleasure to work with as far as demeanor and temperment go. But his view of the law appears, to my analysis, unsupportable when trying a matter outside of his comfort zone.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: NY10910
Vindictive, god forbid you challenge him when he gets it wrong, doesn’t know the law but thinks he does, thinks everybody is there for him and not for justice, hopefully he will be off the bench soon, another example of a judge who never actually practiced law

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9509
Itried a few cases to verdict with him and it is unfortunate that this judge is more concerned with the appearance of being fair than actually being fair, Can’t settle a case to save his life and I think he doesn’t want cases to settle so he can show his “power” Drones on about the Yankees and wastes time on small talk instead of taking about the issues - loves hearing himself talk

Comment #: NY9327
Tried case to verdict; was very impressed by temperament and fairness in his rulings; would like all trial judges to be like him.

Judge Marin has probably one of the most evenhanded and fair temperaments that I have ever worked with. He is intellectually curious and engaged, and you can tell that fairness is his objective, which is the quintessential goal of any good judge (or at least it ought to be).

This is not without some downside though, as in some instances, I feel like he keeps score. Where an issue is a slam dunk in favor of one side or the other, he may be inclined to ponder longer if the other side has had more losses than victories.
