What others have said about Hon. Tamara E. Hall


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA6798
This judge appears to have a problem with men. Her attitude in the court room is not far from ones attitude in the street. She does not have an establish method of getting to the truth. It may be that she does not care about the truth as her personal feelings seems to be centered in her decision process and not the facts of the case.


Comment #: CA6758
This judge does not have a clue about being a judge or any family law statutes.


Comment #: CA6583
Rating:Not Rated
This judge is incompetent and has no business being on the bench


Comment #: CA6582
Judge Hall does not know what she is doing in the courtroom and has a gross lack of knowledge of the law It is scary, that someone like this family court judge, makes decisions that don't protect the victim, her life, safety and her children. Very very scary. A first year law student, has more knowledge of the law than Judge Hall.

Tamara E. Hall is clearly and completely sexist, and favors mothers in her courtroom. Fathers have no rights or benefit of the doubt with this judge. It's more of the same old story here in California where mothers receive undeserved custody rights, and ridiculous sums of child support/alimony payments that financial ruin fathers. Tamara E. Hall is much more suited to be a prison guard so she can punish those who deserve it. Not families and children!


Comment #: CA6253
This judge is a danger to families and children. Please file a complaint at http://cjp.ca.gov if you were unfortunate enough to have this woman as your family law judge. Don't let her get away with it!!!


Comment #: CA6071
Fair and equitable. Has justice and the law at the forefront of her decisions.

Quite possibly the worst judge I've been before in my short 5-year career. She embarrassed herself, her courtroom and quite frankly the entire family law bar - with her lack of knowledge or interest in family law precedent and procedure.


Comment #: CA5461
Tamara E. Hall has no business in Family Law. While some people try to become a judge to help people, Tamara E. Hall has made it clear to me that some people become a judge to hurt people. Before my case I heard several cases. A couple of her rulings were downright scary due to the obvious danger she placed litigants and their children in. This judge seems to award litigants who have been violent toward the other parent. It seems as though she either doesn't care about the safety and we'll being of children at best. Honestly I think it is quite possible that she wants children to be harmed. Tamara E. Hall is going to cause death and bodily harm, either some one's or several people's depending on how long she is able to remain a family court judge. If you think you have a reason to complain, please go to the California Commission on Judicial Perfourmance website and download the complaint form: http://cjp.ca.gov/complaint_process.htm. We all have to speak up and protect ourselves, our children and future litigants. We will succeed only if everyone who can complain, does complain. They can't ignore all of us but they will ignore some of us. Don't let Tamara E. Hall remain in a position to harm anyone else. She is grossly incompetent, at best.

An embarrassment to herself and the legal system. Avoid at all costs unless you want to watch someone mishandle a case and mismanage a courtroom.
