Judge Wong is the worse, he does'nt have a heart he tells lies he has no respect at all.I have nothing nice to say about Judge Wong he says and does whatever he wants whether right or wrong judge laughs and jokes about people and their predictament.Thats not fair. wong says one thing and does another thing he lied about my sons time.I don't understand how hes still on the bench no one should be above the law. Hes a monster. his sentencing is ridiculous and hes untouchable what has this world come to.

The worst JUDGE! He doesnt remember any of his previous statement from previous court dates of the defendants. HE MAKES MISTAKES CONSTANTLY!!!! HE NEEDS TO STEP DOWN!

He is perhaps the most unfair judge ever. There is a chip on his shoulder a mile wide.

Some one should teach this judge that bail is not the exception to the rule; it is the presumptive rule, unless the presumption of innocence applies everywhere in America other than Judge Wong's chambers. He asks questions and gets annoyed if you dare to answer. Squints and can barely see documents -- though his vision is so anti-defendant, nothing would help. Not every defendant can be the worst criminal ever -- but that's the way he sees them. If you've been arrested, you need three weeks in Riker's before your next court date, and no need for anyone else to speak.

This is a no-nonsense judge. With that being said, also a fair judge. I have been a probation officer for 25 years. When a probationer receives probation and is told what is expected, he or she is told that if they violate their probation in Queens they will go before Judge Wong. He is one of the only judges where probationers know his reputation as a no-nonsense judge. We need more judges like Judge Wong sitting on the bench. Bravo Judge Wong!

Most unreasonable and clearly is misguided in any sense of fairness or justice he thinks he might actually possess.
I am personal witness to his Court room and calendar, and can say first hand that he is obiously misguided in delivering sentencing, and clearly is using the bench as a cathartic tool for his personal agenda, and has no sense of responsibility for administering justice in the Queens County community that his position as Judge requires him serve.
I personally witnessed him sentence an elderly man to 9 months and a five thousand dollar fine after the man turned himself in on a warrant for a non violent crime and on the same calendar in the same morning sentence discharge any restitution obligation in exchange for a six month sentence for a defendant who plead to an armed robbery charge who was recently arrested for menacing a federal employee with a Pit Bull and a gun. Unbelieveable!

A miserable, grumpy, short-tempered lousy judge. Comes in late. No regard for any defendant or defense counsel in his courtroom. Doesn't want to hear any argument or point of view other than what he has come into the courtroom with. Awful.

He is a tough judge but fair if you give him something to work with. He is willing to put defendants in programs to help them.But if defendants continuosly mess up, he has no problem giving out heavy sentences. He knows the law and nothing gets by him

I thought he was OK. He dismissed a case on legal grounds that I was not even aware of. So I did not have to say much. He seemed to know the law.

He is rude, disgustingly biased, has pet lawyers, and is a jerk. Other than that, off the bench he can be a nice guy.
