Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: TN23
Rating:9.3
Comments:
This judge has a keen sense of equitable issues, as well as an abundance of basic common sense. He is very scholarly on the law. He is fair, in general, but if his bench actions do not have the control which a court reporter supplies, he can be motivated by peripheral concerns and his own personal biases (i.e., friendships). He handles a severely overburdened caseload and struggles valiantly to keep his docket current; he deserves great praise for this effort. He is not afraid of difficult, complex legal matters. He would make an excellent Tennessee Supreme Court Justice.
