Prosecutor

Comment #: 20712
Rating:9.5
Comments:
Judge Dalzell is extremely intelligent and organized. He expects attorneys to be punctual, prepared, and to avoid grandstanding. He is scrupulously fair to all, but intolerant of unprofessional behavior from attorneys and defendants.

Rating:3.4
Comments:
Intelligent, but arrogant and can be downright nasty. Makes up his mind very early in the case - as early as the complaint, without waiting to read the answer. In civil cases, go with the jury or if possible the magistrate judge.

Comments:
Judge Dalzell quickly grasps complex procedural and substantive issues, which is not true with every judge I've been before. His written opinions are thorough and well-supported. His demeanor is dignified without being intmidating.

Comments:
As a defendant, found that he is more than fair, has a heart, is not intimidating and went "out on a limb" with the sentence he handed down to me.

Judge Dalzell is intelligent and well-meaning. He has a tendency to decide who is on the wrong side at the beginning of the case and not change his mind.
