What others have said about Hon. Andre Manssourian


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA9702
Judge Manssourian is a good man, and a good judge. I have not had a trial in his courtroom, but I did have some legal issues in misdemeanor cases when he was handling that calendar at the beginning of his career. I was positive about a legal issue (and I was wrong)... but what really impressed me was the way this judge handled the disagreement and me.
He never lost his temper, never got frustrated, and went to research the issue in chambers. He presented me with his view point, supported by law and asked me if I wanted time to re-look at my position.
He could have made me feel stupid, he could have embarrassed me in front of my client and my peers. He did neither. I hope he loves being a judge as much as we need judges like him -- the positive responses to him seem to be universal, and from all sides.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA6958
H. Manssourian must have forgotten his crucial role in the justice system. Is he even deciding his own judgements? Started his career from the DA special prosecutions, but now appears to be working for the highest bidder/CCo.'s agendas. Shame on yet another well-intentioned sell-out and sitting duck.
