What others have said about Hon. Trevor S. White



Comment #: CA12600
I filed a pro se restraining order against my husband's brother for neglect, abuse, isolation, etc. during a conservatorship case.
I had evidence attesting to all violations of the welfare and institutions code.
My previous lawyer didn't want to file the TRO because he was afraid of Judge White, so I did so.

My husband had Alzheimer's and this brother managed to take him out of my home while I was at work. He fleeced him of his life savings and was taking his social security from him.

Judge White humiliated me in court, saying that people like me clog up the courts with frivolous cases. He only had two cases that day.
Obviously he hadn't looked at my evidence. He denied the restraining order.

Judge White is an angry, impatient man who should not be on the bench.


Comment #: CA6435
This judge is homophobic. Would not let the defendant's lawyer speak, due to the fact the defendant was guy. This was completely obvious. All he kept repeating was how many cases he needed to get through that day. That was 14 by the way. I don't fell the defendant was given a fair hearing. What a shame it has come to this. They need to get younger more vibrant judges in place.

Judge White was a career D.A., and it shows. He has a short fuse, and is not at all even-handed. Any pro se litigant appearing before him is in for a rough ride.
