Judge Weinstein- I knew him when he was TAP judge in Civil Court. He's a fantastic judge and great in the trial assignment part. He's got a sense of humor and will cut you slack if you need an adjournment. He conferences cases and takes the time to crack heads when needed. These negative comments are from babies!

He threatened to 325d my case because the defendant's attorney was not ready for trial. Tries to bully attorneys. Extremely pro-defendant. Does not know the value of a case. Try to avoid conferences with him.

Completely disagree with the first 2 comments. This guy is so pro Defendant, it is ridiculous. Gives Defendants 6th, 7th and 8th chances to do post Note of Issue discovery. He undoes negotiations by stating, in front of the def attorney, that they are offering too much. He is awful and it will be a relief when this bozo leaves the bench.

Hon. J. Weinstein is a credit the battered Queens bench. He is TAP judge with the depth and character to know what its like to practice civil litigation. He can strong arm attorneys to get a settlement and know the difference between a real need for a few days and when he's being put upon. The only real draw back is that he only is in TAP for two days and continues to permit J. Schulman to sit in TAP when Schulman lacks the ability to handle the TAP cases.

A nice judge and a gentleman too. You're lucky if you're in the TAP part on a day where he's presiding.
