What others have said about Hon. Cheri T. Pham



Comment #: CA5943
Rating:Not Rated
This judge is terrible when it comes to handling domestic violent cases. She hears from the victim and assumes they are telling the truth. She is an absolute psychotic judge who has no idea what the bills of rights is, and shits on the grave of every man and woman who had died for this country if she allows victims to lie, even ones who she is aware has demonstrated a history of deceiving others. To hand out a five year restraining order to someone who has never laid a finger on any of the parties is sick in the head, and has no idea what domestic violence truly is.

She is a very unfair judge. The Honorable Judge Pham is a joke. My ex got everything, and I got nothing. She got the house with all the equity, both of my businesses (one of which I brought to the marriage and the other of which was established during the marriage). She was able to sell one of my cars and keep the other, with no consequences. Watch out for this judge. I'm sure my ex-wife would rate this judge a 10.

One of the top two or three family court judges I have been in front of. I only hope she doesn't burn out like many of our older burn-outs (i.e. Judges Vogl and Wilson). She really wants to make fair, carefully thought out decisions that benefit the parties and their children.
