What others have said about Hon. Randolph M. Hammock


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA9663
Judge Hammock is extremely intelligent, understands case issues, even when very complex, will always listen to, and most importantly consider, both sides. Even if he ruled against my client, I would understand why; he explains his decision making.

Rating:Not Rated
Judge Hammock is much better judge than judge Nieto. It is a shame that both oversee the Dept 77 of the Stanley Mosk, and have different views and treat the pro we litigants totally different.

I may not always agree with his decisions, but it is clear to me that he reads everything, he does try to listen and understand your position, and he is one of the smartest and fairest judges at Mosk. Frankly, the court seems to be wasting his talents in Limited Jurisdiction.
