Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA52684
This Judge has an amazing temperament, is very prepared, and very smart. She treats both sides with respect and commands respect because of it. I wish we could clone her.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA40454
`This judge is the gold standard of what a Superior Court Judge should be: smart, hard-working, and fair. She demonstrates passion for the mission of the court and likes her job. As a former private-bar practitioner she understands the pressures and provocations to which lawyers in civil cases are subject. She would be my first pick in any case.


Comment #: CA3444
This judge was kind and professional and she tried to let the juvenile involved reform, instead of just tossing him in jail. When he still did not behave right, she ordered him back to juvi. It really seemed like she was trying to save lives by not letting an alcoholic drive around, instead of just trying to punish him.


Comment #: CA3416
Very poor judgment despite knowledge of the law. Biased in favor of state in every case and inexplicably resistant to giving consideration to testimony that contradicts or challenges the State's position. Very disappointing. Hopefully she will get through her career without hurting too many people.
