What others have said about Hon. Larry D. Shaw



Comment #: OK1458
I just witnessed a case before this judge, it was a VPO hearing, for a VPO that was denied on an emergency basis, so it should have been a 2 minute discussion. Only the plaintiff was allowed to speak and the judge continued the case in order to make a 9 year old child testify. He was unfair, didn't even let the defendant say one word, and exhibited the poorest decision making possible. What animal makes a 9 year old testify??

Civil Litigation - Private

I have observed Judge Shaw on a few cases and had a case before him (as plaintiff). He was generally soft-spoken and polite to all parties and witnesses, fair in his assessment of the facts, and allowed everyone time to be heard fully. He doesn't suffer fools gladly, however, so be on time and get right to the heart of your case. Answer his questions succinctly and don't talk too much. In the 3 cases I witnessed, he was always fair and correct, IMHO.
