What others have said about Hon. Arthur J. Cooperman


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY696
May be the worst judge in the county if it weren't for Judge Hanophy. They are tied. The only difference is that at least Judge Hanophy treats you nicely. Judge Cooperman is disrepectful to any lawyer who wants justice. He will ridicule and snap at the lawyer for objecting or trying to make a record. Horribly pro-cop; he will jump in to save them on the record and it is like having two D.A.'s in the room. Of course with a legal acumen the size of a small-minded animal, that is not really as bad as it sounds. Judge Cooperman holds jurors in the same contempt. He is a pompous narcissistic lawyer who proves the "Peter Principal." His reversal rate is atrocious. His fifteen minutes of fame are up. He should step down.

King Arthur enjoys a good joke at your expense. Humorless would be an improvement. He is mean, and only he thinks he is bright.
