Comment #: CA8376
Agree with comment CA7705, this judge needs to be pulled from legal system, he easily gets angry for continuances, rarely looks at you in the face, very biasis against defendants, ignores the law and acts on his own rather than follow the law, he's a YALE Yuppy grad that ignores the law and wants to punish you severly for the alleged crime youve commited regardless of being not guilty, Arnold schwarzenegger made a huge mistake in appointing this man as a judge, but then again Arnold was a joke as a governor and now innocent people will suffer for this mistake. Also, has racist notions becareful with this poor excuse of a judge


Comment #: CA7705

I am beginning my 4th decade in practice. Do your homework for this fine Judge. On motions, know the law and be able to apply it to the material facts in your case. Be selective. Be concise. Be polite. Stand up to address him. Prepare oral argument on a motion as if you were before the jury. Judge Jurado reads everything that you consider important. If you are not prepared, he will not save you. He ruled fairly and against me, but I did not make it one bit easy for him. You walk out of his courtroom knowing your client got his monies worth and the system works.

I can say with 29 years experience, you want a person with Judge Jurado's temperament sitting in judgment on your case. He can be trusted with your case and is not shy to tell you how well or in-need your brief writing skills either help or hurt your case. He asks the right questions and gets the most out of oral argument.

Judge Jurado has the ideal judicial temperament to be on the bench, and has a significant reputation for integrity. He is even-tempered, very respectful of everybody's time and the value thereof. I would appear in front of him on anything.
