Most legal aid attorneys are intimidated by this judge, and give poor advice to litigants out of fear of reprisal. The court administration should carefully review most of his cases -- as it is, complaints are usually ignored.

"The most fair and practical judge in the state of New York". This Judge is simply.."Amazing". He is no nonsence and has total control of his court room.

My experience with this judge was when he was in Manhattan Family Court. My child was neglected by the father during a weekend visit with the child had to seek medical attention. The father was asking for custody because he did not what to pay court ordered child support. I contacted social services after the pediatrician asked why I waited so long to get treatment for my child. The father contacted the court for an emergency hearing. Richardson ordered temporary custody to the father saying that the mother was making the father look bad. The young child who hardly knew the father was distraught. I later discovered that Richardson and the father knew each other.
God knows and sees all things. Richardson's concern was not in the best interest of the child.
