Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY12415
Smart, compassionate, and hard working. Comes from a poverty law background and understands the challenges of poverty for litigants being smothered by the system.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY3716
example of what is wrong about anonymous "rating" ... here, a creditor attorney grinds her/his axe on a rare judge who does not provide preferred service to creditors. "bullies" ??? oh,poor babies. perhaps they should grow up before popping up in a courtroom. if rulings are contrary to law, you bet the 4th Dept would be reversing alot ... this is pathetic.


Comment #: NY2259
Regularly ignores rules of court procedure; bullies new attorneys; biased against creditor attorneys; very debtor friendly - in fact will rule in favor of a debtor contrary to law.
