Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA12785
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.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA12615
Respectful of both the law and the litigants. Excellent Judge.


Comment #: CA12492
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.

Rating:Not Rated
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!


Comment #: CA6795
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!!!!


Comment #: CA6782
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!
