The Gould-Saltmans' are a metasizing cancer, seeping toxins, plaguing the sham family courts.

Rating:Not Rated
Dianna Gould-Saltman has her own agenda; to help her own (and her attorney husband's) interests, even when illegal and unethical, and to pad their pockets, from ill-gotten and illegal gains; while their vulnerable victims, become destitute and irreparably harmed.

My x husband earned 6 figures, owns his own corporation and W2d himself for an amount that he could get support from me. I told the judge he owned his corp, just bought a BMW750 and was buliding a pool and she did not care. She awarded him CHILD SUPPORT. SHe should nt be on the bench. SHe caused me and my child financial distress.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA14845
Did not understand the substantive law, did not understand the rules of evidence, and displayed bias.


Comment #: CA10630
Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman is rude, disparaging and unprepared. I was forewarned about her before appearing in her courtroom, and cautioned that she is friends with Commissioner Alan Friedenthal and his wife, Commissioner Steff Padilla. I was warned to not appear in front of her over her outrage that I had the leading role in getting Commissioner Alan Friendethal "Severely Publicly Admonished" by the California Judical Commission. Does anyone have any information about her alleged friendship/connection to these two Commissioners?
