What others have said about Hon. Larry D. Martin



Comment #: NY5619
Rating:Not Rated
In September, 2012, Judge Larry Martin took a completely frivolous civil case and signed a temporary restraining order, maliciously clouded a title, and irreperably damaged a small family business that was the victim of fraud and malicious litigation (see index 502964 2012).

This "Judge" favors foul play and gangsters. Exparte is his thing. He steals your property with ease. All in a day's work. You wont know what hit you. If you got him, the end is near. New York State should lose its funding and bond, regarding Judge Larry Martin's dealings alone!

This is a severely corrupt judge who is using his position to commit crimes in the courtroom. He was once named by the Daily News as stealing real properties and continuing to extort real properties in his courtroom. He is dangerous, and should be in jail.

Let's not sugarcoat things; he's very limited, lazy, can be nasty at times and is so zealous in being pro defedant it's as if he has some sort of religious obligation to do so!

Pro se motion to remove an expired lis pendency. Judge asked me and the court attorney what a lis pendency was. No clue to Real Estate and Operation of Law. Then fells stupid and states on the record he doesnt do too much real estate cases.??????

Get a job with a push broom. Brooklyn Courts are to corrupt to allow stupid judges to also share the same room. I hope brooklyn does away with pollical appointed or cash for judgeships. Broken down attorneys that could not make it in the real life purchase a seat to keep their ass warm.

This judge has cost me (and likely hundreds of other Plaintiff's lawyers) many thousands of dollars of lost time. You will have cobwebs all over you before your motion is heard--by the law secretary (seeing the judge is almost impossible). Then it will be adjourned because the judge isn't there. She won't let you submit the motion. Next motion date will be 4 months later. You'll come back and wait 4 or 5 more hours. If you are lucky you will see the judge. If you do see the judge, he will either make some ridiculous decision on the spot or have the motion submitted anyway, at which point you will wait 9 months for a decision, even on very simple motions. As far as trial, he flip flops on his decisions and it is a nightmare to try a case before him. He starts his day at 11:30 am; then he says it's too late to start in the morning. He then goes for his walk on Brooklyn Bridge during lunch, SHOWERS afterwards in his chambers, and then starts the trial day at 3:30. He will rule in your favor and then reverse his own ruling. He is slow and doesn't like to work too hard. It will be a great service to the bar when he retires. I agree that he has a calm temperament, but that is small comfort given all the above.

Very nice fellow but he has no clue what he's doing and is too lazy to learn. He should get a job as a bureaucrat or run for political office.

Consistently made evidentiary rulings in favor of the defendant in personal injury case. Also does not have a grasp of the rules of evidence and does not understand complex litigation. On the plus side, he has a fairly decent temperament, but if you are a plaintiff that is of little help given that he is a defense judge through-and-through.

Nice man. Has never heard of the rules of evidence. Everything is "in." Doesn't understand my area (employment law). No control of the case.

Judge Martin is a very pleasant man who happens to be in the wrong profession. He is courteous and polite, but is completely clueless about the law. Nobody will ever accuse him of being too industrious. He will never have an ulcer or heart attack because of work-related stress. Reason being, he doesn't work enough. His law secretary runs the show and brings him along for the ride.

Excellent temperament; unfortunately, he's not a great trial judge. Doesn't appear to enjoy trial work. His motion days are awful. Bring "War and Peace" in your bag. You can read it twice before your case is heard.
