What Makes a Good Family Court Judge?
|Attorney Henry S. Gornbein|
Here is what Henry had to say on the subject:
In over forty years of practicing family law, I have appeared before hundreds of different judges. I have found that some are rude, arrogant, and suffer from what is known as black robe syndrome. This means that they have forgotten -- or never knew -- what it was like to practice law, and have a holier than thou attitude. Most judges are considerate, will listen, and will try to resolve issues in cases.
Here are some of my thoughts on the attributes of a good judge in family law:
Well put Henry; we could not have stated the matter any better. Clearly, four-decades of practicing family law has given you some very valuable insight. Thanks for sharing your thougts.
