Bulsara is a nasty and mean spirited judge who seems to get off on bullying and humiliating attorneys, especially young ones.

Judge Bulsara flies off the handle in the courtroom. Displeased by an attorney answer, he’ll slam down a book or iPad and glare and raise his voice. This is not becoming of the office he holds.

He's a pompous and arrogant person who thinks he has the right to tell lawyers how to practice. He is into such minutiae it is hard to believe. I would make book he couldn't practice his way out of a paper bag. Those who can't practice law are the worst judges out there. Or, they go in house.

He is a fair judge but he wants you to appear in person for all cases even when there is no need to do so. I had clients travel great distances to appear before him in a civil matter for less then 30 min... Time that could have better been spent on the phone!

Fairly smart and well balanced, but has a bit of a temper. Also doesn't have the strongest grasp when dealing with technological issues.

Biggest improvement needed is clarity of orders. Too many complex issues are resolved on ambiguous minute entries.

Completely missed the point in a motion. I don't know if he did it intentionally in order to justify his opinion, or if he's just incompetent. Either way, pretty awful.

Bulsara is super smart; he has the temperament and balance. Bulsara is a new MJ but one can foretell his impressive contribution and rise in the judiciary.
