What others have said about Hon. Kristin C. Hoffman



Comment #: AZ699
This judge needs to be voted out. She is very pro "father's rights" even when there is evidence of the father being abusive to the children, suspicion of drug use, and when caught in lies in the courtroom. She will divide everything 50/50 no matter what. Even parenting time when the parents live an hour away from each other. She will not rule on a primary address so that the parents are unable to choose a school for their children thus sending it to a parenting coordinator to use all the parents' money and make crappy decisions. She is harmful to children in divorce rulings.

This "judicial officer" is the worst I have ever seen on any bench! She is allowed to rule by the "rule of man" as she is totally ignorant to the "rule of law" ... such a sad time for "democracy". She needs to have some "reality check" training big time! She must be stopped!

Should not be a family court judge. She was a criminal judge for 10 years then goes to family court and makes criminal rulings in a family court setting.
