Comment #: CA30363
It is common knowledge that judge Pacheco is corrupt and has his hand out. Watch out if the other side has a lawyer from Huntington Beach or Westminster because they are all his buddies and he will help them and rule against you.


Comment #: CA20194
Initially I had high hopes that Judge Pacheco would make his decision based on facts and justice would be served. The antics that went on in his courtroom and behind closed doors had nothing to do with justice. It's difficult for me to even address this but I've come to the conclusion if I don't shed light on this darkness nothing positive will happen. So here's to exposing the truth. It's time to disrobe Randall Pacheco.Transparency can be hard on the eyes. Ouch!

He is biased. . He has no regard for defendants who are victims of malicious plaintiffs. He also postponed a hearing because he had jury duty. We were not informed of this so I had to pay my attorney for coming to court. He also continued another hearing because he had "personal business."


Comment #: CA12061
Biased judge. Does not read information provided to him nor does he look past the bench to see the people whose lives he is impacting with his decisions.. WHEN he actually shows up to court. Why continue a case, repeatedly, to dates you KNOW you will not be there?


Comment #: CA8191
[Redacted.] Important financial decisions were made without allowing expert discovery. Our family business was valued at zero for obvious reasons. The business continues to thrive five years later. Fraud was allowed in this courtroom. Yes! brought to the courts attention by the county attorney, myself, and our adult son. After bringing numerous documented violations of the custody and support orders before the court the orders were modified to further support and enable the misconduct. Our family of four children has been completely shredded and torn apart by the 'family court' 3 of our 4 no longer have a relationship with their father. The youngest stated to me everyone lies in court, and thats the only way to win. He has lost the relationship he once had with the 3 older siblings who have zero faith in our justice system.

Judge Pachecho is a nice man. However, there is much to be desired as far as intelligence goes. In the two times I have been before him, he has grossly failed to follow the law, but only because he is not smart enough, in my humble opinion.


Comment #: CA5423
Forgetful and willing to allow fraudulence. Fairly mean as well.


Comment #: CA4962
This is the worst judge ever. He allowed perjury even after it was pointed out to him. He stole my children and put them in their lying alcoholic grandfather's hands.
