Civil Litigation - Private

Was assigned to the judge, after never trying a case in Dutchess. I’ve tried a lot of cases, in the NYC area. What a wonderful surprise. Her entire part, from courtroom clerks, to the law secretary, and of course the judge, are true professionals. She made a ruling on evidence that I thought incorrect - then she explained her ruling to me, and I realized she knows her stuff. Count your blessings Dutchess County lawyers, count your blessings.

She took the bench in Jan 2018 and to date remains extremely even tempered, most often has a smile on her face, is flexible and reasonable in her approach to advancing a case. She knows her stuff and your case and when ever I file a case in Dutchess County I hope she is assigned to it especially if it is complex and difficult one.

Smart, hard-working, and nice. Has total command of proceedings without being overbearing. With exemplary judicial temperament, vast legal knowledge, and a commitment to fairness, she is extremely well-suited to serve on the bench. We need more judges like Justice Acker.
