Comment #: NY5823
One of the best judges I have seen in over 25 years of practice. Intellectually smart; street smart; wonderful judicial temperament. A judge who has actually tried cases himself. I just hope we don't lose him to the Appellate Division.

Knows his stuff. Helps facilitate settlements if possible. Flexible/plays an active role during all of trial.


Comment #: NY3637
Impatient, impulsive, officious, anti-pro se, not really interested in justice.

Not a big picture jurist. Harmful to have in the Divorce Court.

Agree w/NY567 and especially NY426. A very knowledgeable gentleman judge who often contributes to making settlement possible. Highly respected throughout the district. Only democrat in memory (50 yrs) whom republican lawyers in Orange county complained when he was transferred to another county. A star!

I mostly practice in federal court, so I don't have a lot to compare him to. But I found Judge Lubell to be by far the best state court judge I've ever appeared before. He writes scholarly opinions and and has a strong grasp on evidentiary issues. Very different, in my experience, from most state court judges.

Judge Lubell is one of those rarities, a judge who has tried many cases. Having been in the trenches, he knows and understands the day-in day-out world of a practicing attorney. Extremely fair, he knows how to evaluate and handle even the most complex medical malpractice cases.
