Comment #: CA13031
I strongly believe Judge Heeseman is racially biased when ruling his verdicts. I would caution non-caucasian clients to think twice prior to using him for arbitration.

Professional, thoughtful, hard-working and intelligent. Judge Heeseman will read your papers and make the right decision. I have appeared before him as both a civil defense lawyer on a very complex HOA case, and as a plaintiff's lawyer in employment cases. A definite keep, but now working just MSC bench. I hope he returns to the trial bench.

This is a great judge for pro per litigants, as well as other litigants. He’s fair, honest and will give you a chance to be heard. You never feel like he is trying to be rude or disrespectful, even if you don't agree with his rulings. I can’t say enough about this judge -- what a great person. I so wish there were more like him at 111 North Hill!

Judge Heeseman is a very affable, pleasant judge to work with. He is somewhat reluctant to make difficult calls at times, and frequently requests additional briefing. Often telegraphs his position openly - "This is not a ruling, but . . ." - however, a very conscientious judge and a good addition to the bench here in L.A.
