This judge needs to be removed, he is unethical, never reads briefs, hates case law, short temper, short attention span, never prepared, has many conflict of interests, has been bounced from Civil, Family and now Probate. Good judges don't get flipped like pancakes. Too many complaints, to every Judicial Committee found on the state against this judge. The state does not review complaints of this judge and as a result many families are left devastated. All these positive comments are fake. If he was a good judge and knowledgeable he would not be passed around like a cheap prostitute around court department.

Complete & utter disastrous Judge in Probate. He needs to be De-Robed And we are in the process of starting a movement to have him removed he’s causing great damage to the elder community- - I agree with one of the comments, huge ego , thinks he’s the boss and yells at the counselors- Here’s a tip, hire an Atty who is aggressive ALPHA MALE - He deflates like a marshmallow amazing to watch. If you’re reading this Robert Longstreth “Your days are numbered”

This judge had a 2 week trail and in 4 days without even hearing the evidence he called it to end. He refused to allow us to call certain witnesses to testify regarding the girls safety. He gives dad 50%. Teen girls who have never lived with dad mostly because dad wasn't protecting them in his house. Our daughter has now been raped by the person he refused to put on the stand the same person who had admitted to touching this same child years ago and was ordered into therpy but did continue because dad never followed court orders. This judge looked the other way he didn't listen to the evidence and failed to protect our children. He's moody ,disrespectful and doesn't deserve this position.

This so called judge gave custody of my children to their mother who was in prison (with no release pending) after being arrested for cocaine smuggling. He is either crazy or was bribed. reading some of the other comments I see he hasn't changed. He is a dishonor to the bench, California, the U.S. and to humanity

If I could give him zero I would. Real smart ass, sarcastic, knows little or nothing about law. got some serious problem with inflated ego. Probably was placed there by special interests to do the bidding for them and is probably well compensated. Real piece of work, very sad that this is the best California politicians can appoint.

It appears that this judge is serious about bringing real law and order to the San Diego Probate Courts. For this undertaking, my contingent gives him a standing ovation.

This judge is awful and rude often interrupting the counselors when they are speaking or thumbing through other things at his bench paying no mind to the speaker. He has no regard for the safety or welfare of children or what is in their best interest. I witnessed this in several cases prior to ours being presented. He has no business ruling on any matter that involves the welfare or best interest of any child. If you see his name come up on your case, ask for a different judge immediately.

Judge Longstreth is exceedingly smart, to the point, insightful and unafraid to make important rulings. It means that he can handle cases efficiently, since he does not put off to another day what he can decide and resolve today. He is a SUPERB judge.

This is the first time I have ever rated a Judge or any professional like an Hon. Judge. This Judge mediated a case that involve me as a tenant with a bad landlord. Although I did not walk out without paying about $4,000, Judge Longstreth is sensible, fair and looks at both sides with open eyes. He is a top notch professional and even though I did not walk out a winner I walked out of his courtroom with great respect for this outstanding Judge.
Judge Longstreth is honest, fair and looks at parties with an open mind.
You can trust his decisions!

He is a terrible human being and has no regard for actual rights of parents. He is a terrible judge. If you see his name come up on your case when you file, ask for a new judge immediately!!!!

Judge Longstreth has been a blessing. Frankly, he's probably the SMARTEST judge we've worked with, does a lot of preparation behind the scenes, keeps track of facts like no other, sees through smokescreens, and is not afraid to make tough decisions. He has a challenging job that I don't envy; having to listen to days of testimony was exhausting for me as a litigant and I don't know how he does it, but he's sharp as a tack, pays attention (even when you don't think he is), and doesn't get distracted. He's a gem and you have nothing to worry about if you tell the truth, have a good track record of acting in your kids' best interest, and listen to his instructions. You and your family are in good hands with Judge Longstreth!
