What others have said about Hon. Jeanne Garcia



Comment #: AZ1430
Judge Garcia did not concisely word anything in a useful or useable manner.

She did not hear both sides a fair amount of time.

She overlooked multiple counts of obvious perjury, subornation of perjury, and tampering of a witness by the opposing attorney.

She let the other attorney bully everyone in the courtroom including herself. She did not have control of her own courtroom.

She demanded materials due to her in a ridiculously short time, but then took weeks or months incases to respond or act on information given.

She is insensitive to the bond between a mother and her child.

I have never before voted to remove a judge, but I will be voting to remove her this election.

Judge Garcia made few mistakes on my child custody order, she falsely accused me or something I did not do, with no evidence at all ,she added false information to my order as the statement she made never happened and I never agreed to the change of parenting time and I said it clearly in court, yet she affirms that i agreed and I believe affected me on my rights as a mother. she took more of my parenting time and gave it to the liar father something he doesn't deserve. she wasn't paying attention seems like it and as important as it is, thanks to the bad judge decision is affecting my child and my self. The courts always says that they do the best interest of the child, FALSE !!! they have no idea what is the best interest for my child, I am the mother and I know better and my child couldn't be in better hands than me. Also they don't see when something is affecting the mother because of the other stupidity parent, also affects the child ! so would be great if they consider what a parent goes through

I was a witness in a recent trial in judge garcias court. While I was testifying, she seemed bored, uninterested, and appeared to be distracted. Also, she seemed this way with other witnesses. I don't think she was listening to my testimony or anyone else's. I don't think those people got a fair trial.


Comment #: AZ1268
Jeanne Garcia is the most incompetent judge I have every been in front of. She ignores the evidence; makes her rulings on her personal opinion. She retaliates against any litigant who dares question her rulings. Unfortunately, an appeal takes 12-18 months and about $30K, so it isn't worth it. She should be disbarred.

Did not familiarize herself pre hearing and did understand how updating vital records works.. Also was confused in regards to her own orders. Her rulings then began to favor other party when issue was raised.
