I have read a lot of the negative comments concerning this judge and have had the honer of being present in her courtroom on several occasions.
I have personally dealt with deadbeat and worthless dads who abandoned their children and then expect the court to do nothing about it simply because they fathered the child/ren. This judge has set the standard to all parents that if you drop the ball and put your children in harms way, they will be taken from you and kept safe.
I bet most people who have a negative comment to make are the ones being a horrible parent. You don't get to be in front of this woman because she chose you out of the crowd, you did something that brought you to her and if you had not broken some law or placed a child in harms way the outcome would have been different. She cannot make up laws and I have seen her go strictly by the book.
Good for you, Judge Oldham, keep doing what you do best.

She listens to everyone she even asked me (the mother) some hard questions. Not all on mothers side as stated in other comments. But is fair. She was hard on me as the mother but I got myself on the right track. Hopefully she will make the right choice.

She listens to all sides and then makes an educated and fair decision.
She does not gravitate toward any attorney, person, or entity.
She truly has the best interest of the children involved.
I trust her to make the right decision, no matter how tough it is, each and every time.

All i can say about this judge is SHAME ON YOU.this job has gone to her head i have never been in front of her but she had no problem having an ex party hearing without me even having a chance to say anything in the matter an gave temp sole custody of my 8 year old son based on nothing but lies to a mother that has abused(meth,pain pills,alcohol,)and a mother that was reported to CPS by her own child for physical abuse.PLEASE REMOVE YOUR SELF FROM THE BENCH SO THAT NO OTHER CHILDREN ARE HARMED FORM YOUR ABUSE OF POWER.

I was unfortunate enough to endure her. She interprets court procedure and the law very very loosely and with an anti- male bias. She was calculating enough to put an appearance of some sort of propriety but by the end of an hour all I wanted was away from her kangaroo court and out of the building. I left wondering what happened to law? I have since spoken to other males unfortunate enough to endure her judgement. I have had Maricopa County lawyers off the record laugh derisively at her lack of professionalism and Pinal County's failure to police this Judge. I have reposted this comment as my rating unfortunately wasn't posted. She is worth the effort to repost in order for her true worth in my eyes to be posted.

Biased against fathers. Cant believe she gives custody to a mother who is a compulsive liar and has a history of domestic abuse and has been witnessed beating her daughter several times. SHAME ON HER!!!

Judge Oldham had 22 cases filed in the Court of Appeals - all filed by males.

anti-father. Let mother get away with everything even though she should have been held in contempt of court for not following disclosure laws and for removing child from the state of Arizona. This judge needs to be unseated.

A Male in Pinal County, Family Court, should execise his right when the trial judge is assigned, Judge Brenda E. Oldham, should be NOTICED and replaced. It is your right.

1. Pro female regardless of the law. Williams v Williams-Division II of the Court of Appeals.
2. Judge Oldham makes ruling taking away individual's rights granted under statues. She ordered an individual to remove his rights granted under statues. This is very similar to President Nixon: It not breaking the law if the President does it. Conclusion: Judge is not violating an individual rights granted by staues if Judge Oldham does it. This maddness must be stopped.

She had to be elected because she could never be appointed. She fails to pay attention to details and makes unclear rulings. This was evident in a memorandum decision made by US Federal Judge.

This judge exemplifies the benefit to the community in having a merit-based judicial appointments system, versus an electoral system. If there had been the former system in place she would never (deservedly so) have made it on to the bench.
