What others have said about Hon. Lily L. Sinfield



Comment #: CA8622
I'm surprised by the bad comments. Maybe other people didn't come prepared. As a business owner, I have had to file a few cases because people didn't pay me. I have always gotten my full amount in front of this judge. The other ones in Fontana are unpredictable.


Comment #: CA8405
No sense of fairness or common sense - extremely pro-defendant. First time experience with the court as a plaintiff and very sad to learn how justice can go to the wrong side with incompetent judge.


Comment #: CA7169
Delay in making a decision after trial. All parties appeared. Simple Unlawful Detainer case for non payment of rent. No decision in over a week. Judge not available by phone.

If you strive for best possible result in this particular courtroom, be on time, be prepared, be organized, be flexible, be polite and quietly respectful, and be helpful to the court with applicable legal authorities. Oh, yes, don't bullsh*t her.
