What others have said about Hon. Thomas Whelan


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY8506
Judge Whelan is a wolf in sheeps clothes. He has demonstrated racial and religious bias against me and my client. He is spiteful and will smile in your face while stabbing you in the back.

He is not strong on the law and he harbors resentment that he will never advance within the court system due to his DWI and domestic abuse history.

He is a great judge; his scholarship is matched by his temperament. He gets it.

This judge is honest and smart. His decisions were right on the mark for facts in the case. If he thinks he does not know law, he is honest enough to say so and does his research.
