Unfortunately didn’t know this judge favors the side against nyc government agencies. Probably why my case was handed to him.

I had an appearance before Judge Hagler on 10/2/17. Although it was split decision, neither side getting all it wanted that day, Justice Hagler was extremely well-prepared and organized, understood the case fully from all angles, and really helped the parties to steer the case to a resolution. Both sides appreciated his efforts.

From his Talmudic education, I hoped for more insight. Judge Hagler does not want to do any work. . Based upon what pops into his head, he makes sudden impulsive decisions.

I am a person being sued for collection of divorce attorney fees which I have contested are unreasonable - I have found S. Hagler to be every thing I could ask for in a judge for such a matter - reasonable and willing to listen to both sides - it doesnt hurt my inclination that he found in my favor, though, i should admit

I have been before him both pro se and with an attorney defending me. He was smart, fair and courteous to both me and my attorney. He bends over backwards to give every side the opportunity to defend their position, and bases his rulings on the law. You can't ask for more than that!
