Not a good judge. She is un able to make clear decision. She dose not even finish the ruling. Leaving things out wants parents they do what to do child sup. She trays and makes them. I have set through her court room many times. Let's the women get away with everything. Will no hold the accountable for nothing. One mom got away with working 12 hours a week and making that dad pay her alimony when she didn't even ask for it. And won't let the dad be with his kids. Cause mom made up lies. judge even count her in the lie. She is ruining lives. Yelled at a lady in the crowd for shaking her hair on disbelief she should not have the right to make decisions.

This judge never starts on time. She cannot handle a calendar on her own. She has to have the bailiff pull files for her. It is apparent that she either takes the bench without reading the files, or that she does not take notes, or is unable to remember the facts of the case that is in front of her. She is unprepared and seems overwhelmed. She also appears to be biased and unable to make a decision. She is always referring people back to mediation to see if they can "resolve" their family law case.
