Humorless, serious, industrious and evenhanded. Lets you try your cases. No banter. Doesn't impose self. Holds people to their burden. Is impatient with fools. Gives most of the close calls to the defendant. Impossible to read. It is almost like having a computer/robot on the bench. Rulings tend to be quickly and correctly made. Emotions are kept out of sight. Straitlaced. Pretty much one of if not the best trial judges in New York State.

A little uneven in temperament, but always even in rulings. One of the best judges in Queens.
