Made rulings at trial based on liberal ideologies, rather than on the law.

Crackerjack judge. Tried city case before him. Even though he knew Corp counsel by her first name, he was extremely evenhanded. Smart, punctual and a pleasure to be before. Even the rulings against me made sense. Great assignment for either side.

This man really did a lifelong number on my daughter in Family Court. He knows the law and his public Oath but he twists it around and uses the false allegations of DV that the Uber Radical Feminist 'Attorney for the Child' law firm, Children's Law Center to delay any plenary hearing and eventually destroy a child's life and that of her paternal family. He was involved in the regular Criminal Racketeering in the Family Court for Federal Feminist Funds such as VAWA, HHS, OCSE and of course litigation fees. He would pick and choose the Orders, procedures and rules he wanted to achieve his ends and is void of any ethical practice. He is not a good Judge and certainly should not be a public officer. He should be held accountable and disbarred and jailed for his practice. The very worst our government has ever offered. State sponsored child abuse.

I had one trial before him last year. He is honest, knows the law, makes reasoned decisions and most of all has a great demeanor. He is polite and friendly to everyone. I almost had another trial before him which ended with a settlement which he was involved in obtaining. Give him all the stars.

For his pandering to the feminist Children's Law Center and flagrant violations of the NYS Public Officers law as a judge in Kings County Family Court, he should be disbarred, arrested and placed in prison.

One of the best judges in Kings. If I could, I would try every case before him. Very hard worker. Conferenced cases after 5:00 to move case along. Fair rulings. Terrific law secretary.

I may not be an Attorney or a resident of NYS but I know the law and the Unlawful abuse bestowed upon my innocent daughter by Political Judge of the Kings County Family Court Bernard Graham. I am not a "disgruntled litigant". I am an informed Father and witness (holder of the Family Court transcripts) of Judge Bernard Grahams abuse of my daughter so he could bring in 'Federal Incentives' thru VAWA, Child Support, Child Visitation Business and other Judicial/Financial RICO scams. Judge Graham will be held accountable under 18 USC 241 & 242 in Federal Court and he will not be allowed "Judicial Immunity" because he broke the law, took Public money, defied his Oath of office and worked against the Public Interest (destroyed My family).

These other comments must come from a party that lost in family court and consequently is very upset. This Judge is a pleasure to appear before and to try a case in front of. A gentleman - we could use a whole lot more of this in Kings Supreme.
