Criminal Defense Lawyer
This judge is very skillful at deceptively creating an impression of being fair and pleasant, when, in fact, he is extremely pro-civil-defendant and pro-government. He is quite bright, and attentive to detail. Unfortunately, he uses his intelligence selectively to help the side he wants to win. He is very quick to sanction attorneys without notice or good cause, and has been recently been reversed for this conduct. He will refuse to enter a judgement on a jury verdict in favor of a plaintiff he does not like. In one case, only after two years and a writ of mandate from the Ninth Circuit did he issue the judgment. He then denied the prevailing party even one dollar of attorney's fees under statute. This too was reversed.
