What others have said about Hon. Michelle R. Rosenblatt


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA6179
Very surprised that the reviews were so mixed. This is one of the better prepared, efficient, and smart trial judges in L.A. I have appeared before, and it was in a bench trial context. I agree with the comment that she is Court of Appeal material, However, we are lucky to have her on the bench. I would not strike her ever.

You must affidavit this judge if you do not know her. She is condescending and arrogant. But what is most troubling is that the oath she took as a judge is meaningless to her. She will ignore the law to help those she favors.


Comment #: CA4911
Rating:Not Rated
She is rude, moody, condescending and unprofessional.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4840
She is one of the best judges in Los Angeles County. She is smart, well-prepared, and will engage with counsel. I see the Court of Appeals in her future.

Judge Rosenblatt is without question one of the better judges in the LASC, downtown or elsewhere. She is smart, even-handed, and knows the law.

This judge is perhaps a little wishy-washy, but I think she got it right in our case. She allowed the parties to argue, was relatively pleasant, and kind of attractive.

Comment #: CA4032
One of the best judges at L.A. Superior Court. Smart and unbiased. Very well prepared for hearings and trial. Reads the papers and follows the law. Very professional to counsel. Evenhanded. Excellent to try a case before.

If you are a prosecutor or if you are in the corporate world, I do understand the attraction to this judge. As an abused woman, I would recommend that you choose another judge, as surprisingly, this judge is not concerned with truth, justice, and the American way. She is condescending and has very little patience. Again, if you are in the circle, you will do fine, for the little people, I do not see fair due process in your future with this woman.
