What others have said about Hon. Bunmi O. Awoniyi


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA8593
Chumminess with lawyers she knows; questions of impartiality


Comment #: CA8590
This judge is openly biased in her decisions, and doesn't seem to care who knows or the impact on the lives of the 'un-favored' ... clearly a political appointee ... I filed a complaint to no avail after my son, despondent over her clear favoring of the woman he was trying to divorce, took his life ... she is not competent to be a family court judge.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA8587
She has her cronies from her former practice that she favors. Likes to lecture everyone, knows how to parent the children better than the parents. Seems to be going one way and will flip on a dime. Stay out of her courtroom.


Comment #: CA6685
She does not listen, seems biased for the woman, not the family ... does not understand that alcoholism is a family disease ...
