Rating:Not Rated
Extremely biased towards big corporations.


Comment #: CA11513
Does not care about law or facts. Value only opinions of "important people". He is completely Ok to leave the child with convicted (by the criminal court for battery against own children)) criminal). Easily susceptible to the influence from the people of power. Have extrajudicial contacts with parties and attorneys of his choice. Cover for the relative - criminal in Arizona. Very indecisive so he prolongs cases for years.

Comment #: CA9638
Does what he thinks is fair instead of following California Family Code. In particular ignored FamilyCode 4063-(2.b). Ex submitted bills from 5 to 7 years prior for $17,000+ that included duplicates and did not include proof of payment. Judge Convey made a ruling that they were to be accepted even though there was not proof of payment and the submission was much after 30 days.

Horrible judge who simply doesn't deserve the title. If he doesn't like you he rules against you period. Calls children liars and doesn't have a problem with them being physically abused with and emotionally abused. He should be taken put of family law because he breaks families apart with NO REGARD FOR THE CHILDREN and what's TRULY IN THEIR BEST INTEREST! He needs to be stripped of his judicial title!
