What real judges think of Attorney Catherine W. Real
The following is testimony from an active sitting Circuit Judge in Hillsborough
County on April, 29, 2015:
Okay. We are back on the record. So I'm going to be making some preliminary
comments to all parties and counsel before I get into my specific findings
and my ultimate ruling.
First and foremost, I want to compliment both of the of the attorneys today.
It was clear that your preparation leading up to and then during today's
proceedings, was exhaustive. You advanced very strong positions for your
respective clients. There was a lot of testimony and evidence that was
of an extremely intimate, personal, sensitive nature, as well as just
the overall nature of the allegations alleged of domestic violence. So,
very emotional topic, and I wanted to compliment both of you for not just
your preparation, but the professional--professionalism with which you
represented your clients, your clients' interests, and interfaced
with opposing counsel and the opposing litigants.
It was not lost on the Court, and it shouldn't be lost on your clients,
that they should be extremely satisfied. Regardless of how the Court rules
today and regardless of what the Court finds credible and not credible
in testimony, they should be very satisfied with the quality and character
of the representation that they received today and have been receiving,
and I'm sure, will continue to receive beyond the domestic violence
injunction hearing that we're at right now.
