Comment #: NY3533
This man was a liar. He ran his courtroom like a business enterprise, adjourning cases so forensics can earn more and bleeding out "monied" parties while trashing their reputations. This "judge"'s soulis now being Judged by a higher authority. He destroyed several fathers and their relationship with their children.

He seemed pretty fair to me and seemed to know the law. No complaints.

This judge is as kind to lawyers as compassionate he is to the litigants. A crowded courtroom, but because he keeps a close rein on issues. Not afraid to try or conference, and those who look to bully others, are often taken to task in a way that is dignified but pronounced. The BEST matrimonial judge in New York State, and beloved by the bar and the court personnel.

while doing trials, he will sign orders subpoenas and attempts to be accomodating. trial dates are firm and whenin the courtroom, be prepared! he likes lawyers to be prepared and especiallt to get along. if he doesnt know, he will look it up on the spot.

one of the best and brightest that i've seen in 26 years. Even when i lose, I understand why. Runs a tight ship, but with a sense of humor and dignity to all. Truly a pleasure and the court staff and lawyers love him. Only problem is that he works too hard.

This judge is a compassionate jurist. Often controversial because he seeks realistic solutions in an area where New York State statutes are obsolete.
Does not suffer fools gladly but that can be a good thing.


Comment #: NY214
Judge Ross is very biased against men. He also lies (on the record), and can not be trusted. He is overly biased and favors certain attorneys. The question is why?

Shouldn't be a lawyer, no less a judge. Pompous and ignorant are the only nice things to say.
