Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: 25620
Incredibly biased towards the prosecution. Does not belong on the bench. I have tried cases in 25+ districts and Judge Caproni is the most biased judge I have ever seen. She is smart, but she utilizes that intelligence with one focus: putting defendants in prison.

Rare find. Like a laser, focuses only on the issues and resolves cases in an academic, equitable fashion. Does not take sides.

Just had a jury trial before Judge Caproni and thought she was excellent. Handled it like a veteran. Great demeanor, even handed and knowledgeable.
