Rating:1.0

I have been in civil litigation for 42 years Jones has demonstrated the inability to honor a perfection on trust that he can and will withhold an integrity to protect the general public in civil matters. Jones has enlighten an ego type of posture in his courtroom that has and will continue to damage our Already Fragil legal system. I have no trust in this Judge that he has any regards for the law we reside in. Do not use this judge to litigate your case trust me it's like a carnival in his courtroom.

The word in and around placer county court and it's staff is Jones is crazy. No telling what you'll get sitting in his courtroom. Law, protection of the law Jones has proven over and over in the few years he had been on the bench he has no knowledge or regards for the law we reside in he allows testimony that has no legal merit and denies evidence that is prudent to factual conclusion.

Newly appointed judge works as he is above the law and the oath he signed. Reckless and can be influenced not a true finder of fact and works with little no regards for the truth.

Outstanding judge. A recent trial had multiple difficult issues, each of which he handled with fairness and respect. He is great with juries, lawyers and witnesses.

Judge Jones displayed the utmost professionalism during a recent trial. He was gracious with the jurors and truly expressed his gratitude and acknowledgment of the contribution from the jurors to the justice system. He is a great example for other judges in helping jurors have a more positive view of the jury experience. He was very calm, polite and professional with the attorneys. He provided very helpful directions to both the witnesses and the jury.
