If all federal judges were half as fair-minded, compassionate, conscientious and smart as Judge Crotty, the world would be a better place. Blessed is the happy lawyer who pulled his name from the wheel.

He runs a tight ship, but is fair and will let the attorney try his or her case provided there is not repetition or overlap in testimony.

This judge is the picture of what one expects from a federal judge: firm, decisive, and smart. He shows remarkable patience with bad lawyers, but gets his rulings right.

Judge Crotty has great charm and compassion, a remarkably even temperament, and excellent instincts. He has had little criminal experience, and it shows, but he will become more sure-footed over time.
