No trial experience in front of Judge Pacheco, but I've always been satisfied with his pre-trial rulings and his temperament.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA2095
Rating:5.3
Comments:
Although he is a very even tempered judge, and generally pleasant to be before, I don't think he (or his staff) can grasp more complex/nuanced arguments. Perhaps this is because he was the UD judge for quite some time.
I've had defense cases in front of him and he seems to give the plaintiff every single opportunity when it seems clear to me that no cause of action was there. Example: gave plaintiff 4 chances to amend his complaint which wasted time and money.
