This judge is a worthless individual, who does nothing but kick the can down the road, in order to keep himself employed.

He is a awful man and has destroyed my husbands relationship with his son by allowing the mother to move out of state with their son. He shouldn't be allowed to be a judge as he is extremely bias and one sided.

General opinion is shared. Fathers are not important enough to keep in the childs life to him. He does not hear the case and always sides with the mother. Instead of keeping a fair and functional relationship with children he decides its best to destroy it and fathers lives at the same time. Sorry if you are ever in the prescence of this man.

He does not care at all about the fathers. It doesn't matter what the circumstances. And no matter what the lawyers give him to sign for the mothers he will sign it regardless if its not true. He is one sided and bias. He should not be a judge. There is no such thing as a fair hearing in his court.

He was my judge in a custody battle with my son awhile back and told me I would be his hero if I signed and open adoption. He brings his own personal opinions into cases and doesn't look at the facts. I pray you never have him reside over your case.

first he is not a judge..and he is one sided when it comes to placing children with parents...even if a mother has a drug problem and the father doesn't he still places the children with the mother..
