Comment #: AZ1368
She is an unscrupulous person that abused power when she was a judge, hope nobody would have to deal with someone like her. She is rude, and cares less for my sons welfare, hopefully she would be disbarred, worst judge in the world.


Comment #: AZ417
She seems to be pro-mother in Family Court. Not great for Dads. Pros about her - she's straight to the point and punctual. She's quick to review documents filed.


Comment #: AZ210
This woman is determined to keep my child from me because she just doesn't like me. I have another court hearing with her and I have provided her with what she wants. My x-husband she never enforces what she tells him to do. I will see next hearing if she shows any integrity. She must not have children because she could care less if I ever see mine again. No heart as far as I can see. Son wants to come home so bad and is threatening to kill himself or his father and she still refuses to let him with no real basis. I will submit new review after hearing and let you know if she makes x-husband accountable and shows she has some compassion.

I know I won't be voting for her unless she changes her attitude and starts to care about my son's welfare. I'll stand out with signs when it's voting time to encourage others not to vote for her.


Comment #: AZ207
This is one of the worst Judges I have ever encountered. She is unfair and I believe she makes her decisions on whether she likes you or not. Makes false accusations and could care less about the safety of my child.


Comment #: AZ153
this judge knows admits that she mishandled the case, shows blatant racism, knows plantiff not competent to stand trial because of head injury, accuses plantiff to be uncooperative because of memory problems, refuses a continuance, and there were many witnesses she gets away with her behaviour by commission and has had other complaints of the same nature, she needs to go
