What others have said about Hon. Candace S. Heidelberger



Comment #: CA37041
Ours was a Family Law matter. She was biased and did not stay informed about the case history, which was very important. She didn't even make any orders other than letting the custodial parent make all future decisions because she was sure he would do everythng he said. Heidleberger is the most nieve judge I have ever seen. Her actions and inactions have caused our family more pain and suffering than if we had never asmed tbe court for help. She needs to GO!


Comment #: CA16951
She needs to go. She gives probation to killers, rapists and robbers

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA15223
I haven't appeared before her as a judge, but I did work alongside her many years ago when she was working for the county representing juveniles in dependency hearings. She seem fair and reasonable. Hopefully she still is.
