What others have said about Hon. Debra Silber


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY12770
The most incapable Judge in Brooklyn. She does not know the law and does not allow attorneys to argue their case. She makes up the law from the bench without any rhyme or reason. She has lost all basis of reality. Good luck if you have the misfortune of her hearing your case. She should be removed from the bench immediately.

Comment #: NY12495
Excellent Judge reads papers and makes decisions. Neutral arbiter of the facts and law. Actually does the job and likes what she does, unlike most judges.

Comment #: NY11981
Extremely rude and belittling, not to mention extremely racist.

If you want a Judge that's smart, fair and will apply the law, you want to be before Silber. If you want a Judge that you will allow you certain privileges irrespective of the law, then you don't want her.
