What others have said about Hon. Lori R. Behar



Comment #: CA23560
Judge Lori Bahar victim-blamed me by saying, "You should have thought of that before you had a baby with him!" in response to answering her question by replying that the man who fathered my child was abusive. She has moved on from family court and I recently saw that she was awarded some kind of commendation for her work on the bench. Bahar left a trail of broken women and children and she doesn't want it made known through this site. I remember the verbal abuse and attacks on my character by you Lori and every chance I get to say what type of cruel woman you were to use your power against domestic violence victims - mostly other women - I will.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11706
I first appeared before her when she was a commissioner and found her to be involved and interested in each case. She then became a judge and continued her growth as a judicial officer. Even handed and treats parties with care and caution as family law is emotional.


Comment #: CA5126
If you are a mother, beware. She bends over backwards to aid deadbeat fathers who don't work, abuse the mother and/or kids and especially if you are black or Latino. Men are allowed to be indigent, lackadaisical and indifferent, while the mothers are held to a far more critical standard. If you are a woman, you better not go in her courtroom without an attorney.
