He is the worst judge ever! He completely screwed up my child support case. He basically gave money to a deadbeat dad over a child. Do not ever go before this judge without an attorney!

Listens to crocodile tears and makes his own laws. Has no regard for court appointed doctors and brings children in to the court room and chambers. He thinks he’s a world traveler and knows more than anyone else…and he’s wrong. More ego than law.

Without a doubt THE MOST biased judge I ever have come across. He's a joke and a disgrace to the judiciary. Panders to the jury, props up the plaintiff's attorney to help him in the eyes of the jury and alienates the defense attorney so that the jury comes to believe he's "the bad guy." Devious, underhanded and conniving; all performed with a smarmy smile and honey-toned words before the jury. Watch this one, he'll ruin your client.

Motivated ideologue. Tries the civil plaintiff's (individual) case for the plaintiff's attorney. Ad libs statement of the case in a manner entirely favorable to the plaintiff. A disgrace to the judiciary.
