Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY1739
Understands the issues, gets to the point, and is very fair.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY842
Perfect temperament. Intelligent. Does not involve himself in settlement in any way, shape or form if a bench trial is in the offing. Respectful of counsel and gets to the point with class and grace.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY768
Excellent judge. Obviously smart and expects lawyers to act professionally in his courtroom. I would take him on my case any day.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY721
His approach to ruling on motions seems to be "do nothing, and the matter will go away." Unprepared for oral argument. When arguing before this judge, be prepared to discuss the abc's of your case.

Comment #: NY9
Rating:Not Rated
One of the best state court judges. Gives every party a chance and actually reads the briefs. Pays attention to the law.
