What others have said about Hon. Daniel Juarez


Court Staff

Comment #: CA35379
Judge Juarez is very conservative, contientious and fair. He is thorough and follows the rules. He is completely prepared and ready for all cases. He treats everyone with respect and deference.
He understands the process thoroughly since he has a sibling who is a client of the Regional Center. He takes his job seriously.


Comment #: CA31594
Judges like Juarez of Mental Health Court compel their conserved slaves of the psychiatrist to appear every year whether they have done anything wrong or not. When contesting a case the psychiatrist must be given a chance to testify, and is payed by the defendant who is referred to by Mental Health Court as a respondent. Neither Judge Juarez nor any other judge of Mental Health Court, ever tells the defendant what they are there for. People in Mental Health Court are convicted because they do not willingly take the medicine prescribed to them by the psychiatrist, a doctor that the defendants must pay to testify against them if they chose to contest their conservatorship.
The defendants in Mental Health Court do not know that their conservatorships are reinstated because they do not willingly take the medicine forced upon them. They are never told. I figured it out only after being conserved for more than ten years. I had been conserved for twelve years before I told a knew psychiatrist earning four hundred dollars an hour that I can see now that whether or not I needed the medicine when first conserved I need it now because I have been taking it for so long. I was hoping that this psychiatrist would write me a letter in my favor on account of my confession, but he did me one better. He said that on account of my understanding that I need the medicine their will be no need for him to write a letter recommending reappointment of my conservatorship. Psychiatry as practiced in Mental Health Court is a religion where the defendants serve the psychiatrist, who is like a high priest , the court room Devision 95A is their temple and the judge is equivalent to the Pope. Mental Health court does not discuss whether or not the defendant needs the medicine, that has already been decided, Mental Health Court is about whether or not the person is willing to consent to taking the medicine, but that is kept a secret.

This Judge is a total embarrassment. Totally unsuited to be a Judge. Passive and aggressive and vindictive. Appears to never read any papers filed. Biased in favor of "professional" fiduciaries and their attorneys, and against law people. If you represent a lay person, would be malpractice not to 170.6 this Judge every time.

This Judge comes into courtroom saying "he's tired from the night before,so bear with him". Says he's "confused and has a headache". This Judge did not review the complete facts and medical records regarding our 94 year old uncle, and made decision's anyway instead of reading all documentation before we get into court again. He uses the same comments again "I have a headache and I'am confused on this matter" and ultimately denied the family over a neighbor's wrongful doing in taking advantage of a elderly gentleman! Three times in court the Judge has used these same excuses and comments. My family and I have lost all faith in the court system after what we have had to go through with this Judge, before, during, and after our case. We feel that this Judge was completely incompetent and totally incapable of understanding what was at stake, and made decisions without fully comprehending what he was doing to the family's well being.
