This judge destroyed my children's future and didn't follow the law in any way. We had solid proof showing my Ex-wife and her family was constantly telling lies and she laughed it off. She was not a fair or resonable judge by any means. Worst judge I have ever had an experience with. If you get assigned to her do whatever you can to get a different judge.

She is absolutely horrible.
Unfortunately I have been involved in the SD family court process since late 2012 and Judge Parker is the WORST judge I have experienced! She rules by the seat of her pants and does not seem to know or care about court rules! Judge Miller was taking over for Judge Parker recently and she was GREAT ...fare, just and worked at fining happy medium in her rulings and keep needs of children front and center. I pray that Judge Miller permanently takes over for Judge Parker!

Worst judge I have ever seen. She reverses decisions, doesn't hold people accountable to not showing up to court, takes sides without any evidence, is scared to take action, heavily against people in recovery. Completely unfair and has ruined the past multiple years of my life!!! Wish I had other judge who saw completely through my ex in 10 minutes.

I have been working in this field for nearly 20 years. I have seen many judges, lawyers and divorcees. I have been seeing this judge for a little more than 2 years. At first, we were glad we are getting a Harvard educated judge on the bench who can decipher through the bs of the criminals and liars. But within a few days, the staff realized that this judge is not smart at all. Despite her expensive and prestigious degree, she can not see or is unwilling to acknowledge that liars and criminals in the court. She routinely rules against the innocent parties and put the lives of innocent children at further risk with awarding custody to poor parent.. Everyone in the court is seeing it except her. The degenerates who do fool her over and over again are ecstatic before coming to court because they know they can fool her and they usually laugh at her outside the court room when they get a ruling in their favor. THIS JUDGE DOES NOT BELONG IN FAMILY COURT. I hope to god She will be removed sooner rather than later.

This judge is unable to see malignant Cluster B personality disorders of the divorcing parties. In fact, I believe she knows ZERO about cluster B personality disorders. If she does see them, she is not brave enough to rule based on her intuition. Thus, she routinely rules for her own job safety. Unfortunately for her, appellate judges with more experience in family law and their day in and day out experience with cluster B personality disorders will see what this judge is not seeing. She is in for a rude awakening regarding her reputation as her rulings will get reversed over and over again. I believe her knowledge of family law is very minimal and she is highly pro-female. She is downright mean and rude at times. She is easily charmed and fooled by the narcissist party in divorce proceeding to the extent that when they get "one over her", they are laughing at her outside of the courtroom. Judge Parker might think that she is running the courtroom, but it's the Cluster B narcissist divorce party that is really in charge of this courtroom. She should be educated, if not re-educated on family law and possible newly educated in cluster B personality disorder with relation to Narcissistic spectrum. One good place to start for her would be Sam Vaknin's "malignant self-love, Narcissism Revisited". If you are divorcing a narcissist in her court, keep your energy for the appellate court. She is blind when it comes to cluster B narcissism.

Judge Pamela Parker saw right through the lies of the petitioner in my case. She is the first person to ever hold the petitioner accountable for her actions and I felt vindicated after hearing her rule in my favor today. Judge Parker is very intuitive and she has great instincts. She knew I was a good dad to my kids in spite of what petitioner and her attorney said about me, and I am eternally grateful to her for that. For anyone else who has their case heard by Judge Parker, all I can tell you is that if you are one hundred percent truthful then you should come out on the winning side.

Highly intelligent and sharp judge. Unfortunately, she knows little about family law. In addition, she incapable of seeing through a Borderline or a Narcissist. She is easily fooled and manipulated by the narcissistic charm and the borderline emotions. She needs some time away from the bench to study family law and get detailed knowledge about NPD and BPD. Judges and lawyers like this should read a book called "splitting" by Bill Eddy LCSW, JD. There is no doubt in my mind that this judge has the raw intellect and passion to make a great family court judge. However, she needs more knowledge about family law and detailed training and information about Cluster B narcissism and borderline sociopathy.

This judge knows NOTHING about family law. She has ZERO knowledge about cluster B personality disorder. She rules only to protect herself. She easily falls prey to narcissistic charm. Despite her Harvard education, she has no real world intelligence. She is possibly disappointed in her own personal life, liklely with her own relationships. She routinely disregards evidence based on hearsay. This judge was an environmental lawyer and just recently assigned as a judge to family court!!! She is definitely pro female. If you are dealing with a narcissistic spouse in court, IMMEDIATELY RECUSE HER as she is blind in spotting cluster B narcissism. If you are dealing with a narcissistic spouse, do not rely on her to give you justice.

Judge Pamela Parker does not know family law. She also can't see through an abusive man, doesn't take domestic violence seriously and couldn't care less about the best interest of children in a shared custody situation. She should get educated about narcissistic personality disorder, and cluster B personality disorder in general. She gave 50% custody to my abusive ex, right after he was back from deployment. Our kid was 3, and she disconsidered my requests for a gradual adjustment period. My child suffers until today... anxiety and abandonment issues. I begged for her to consider the Domestic violence history, she didn't care. Right after 1 month of shared custody my little girl told me her father was sexually abusing her, by touching her privates. For the love of God, why this judge didn't listen to a mother in need??? Why disconsidered all the signs??? I can't tell how much I dislike this judge. Because of her I share custody with a pedophile. Please judge Pamela Parker, be more attentive and prepared. Shared custody situation when a parent is unfit is traumatic for the children!!!! Shame on you!!! Go do something else. You ruined mine and my daughter's life.

Judge Pamela Parker, allowed a Plantiff to make a fool out of her, as the Respondent told Judge Parker that the Plantiff was Perjuring himself, and taking documents out of the file, any yet Judge Parker, as educated , as experienced as she is, and a mother, she allowed criminal actions to take place. Shame on you Judge Parker? YOU FAILED!!!!!!!!

I believe she was fair. I was very honest and my ex tried every tactic to embarrass and discredit me for my dvro. She properly weighed facts and thankfully saw through his facade.

After over two years in a custody trial in her courtroom, I can say I am very familiar with this judge. I have been dealing with a narcissist ex for 6 years in court, and this is the first judge who rightly and completely exacted justice for the children in my case. With laser beam precision, she saw through all of my ex's lies and behavior and ruled as the judges in family court are supposed to do, in the best interest of the children! It isn't about a parent "winning", it's about the kids. I have never witnessed a judge in family court so deeply committed to their job, and so thoughtful in their ruling. I consider it a great loss that she will be leaving Vista court in January.

This Judge has really let down and disappointed me and my young children. I presented CPS records of all of my children stating that their father hits them, a letter and medical files stating that my daughter is afraid of her father and that she needs anti anxiety medication. I also provided my daughters direct statements of escalated abuse in a forensic interview. My daughter can't even sleep in her own bed, she's too afraid. This judge stated that she doesn't believe that my children are being abused by their father. HOW MANY TIMES DOES A CHILD HAVE TO BE HURT BEFORE SHE CONSIDERS IT TO BE ABUSE!? She seemed to be unhappy with ME for bringing this case to court. My narcissist ex charmed and fooled her and his case was dismissed. My ex looked at me and smirked after she gave her judgement. How can one protect their children and stop the cycle of abuse when a judge allows it to happen? I'm disgusted.

I CONCUR! This Judge knows little about Family Law/ Court. Has to look everything up - but she was Appellate & Environmental Lawyer in family court? To be Harvard law she made procedural mistake SEVERAL times in my case and has gotten upset to the point she has made decisions and comments that fall under the Definition of Misconduct. She is getting out of Family Court but she is doing SERIOUS damage while she is there, its SAD for the children while do we need to be the proving grounds for Judges like this. Don't sit and take it, go thru the process of Recusing her so it can bring this issues to more light. Obvious if you have a lawyer that is going in front of multiple times a week they will be hesitate to do so because it may effect them and other cases but don't her damage your family any more than needed. The party in your case is already an adversary you don't need the Judge to be also.

This judge does not know anything about family law. She is willing to risk placing a child back in the home of a criminal who hits and abuses a child. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS SERIOUS. She is not taking this matter seriously.

During our Divorce case / Trial, I told and showed proof to Judge Parker, that, my Ex LIED about anything and everything that came out of his mouth. Judge Parker allowed my Ex to play her as a Fool, not only should my ex, be Ashamed of himself, of how he Lied over and over, he wasted the Judicial systems time and resources, but Judge Parker, should be embarrassed, that my ex, made her look like the biggest Fool ever. My ex, and his sister, were waiting in the court room lobby, boasting about how easy, that was, to get over on Judge Parker.

I really liked Judge Parker. She seemed fair and willing to give the litigants time to present their side. She also has a very keen BS meter and often used it to admonish people who were getting out of control in the courtroom. I love how she would put my husband's ex-wife in her place when the ex-wife would get histrionic and start telling lies that anyone could see through. I went to observe her before she heard my husband's case, and I was very very impressed with how she showed compassion and insight into people's situations, and really tried to bring about the most fair and compassionate result. She is a much better judge than Judge Huguenor, who was, quite frankly, a disaster, as she was incompetent, old and tired and obviously didn't care about the best interests of the children or the parties. She would just rubber stamp whatever the female litigant would demand, without any discernment, anything to get the people out of the courtroom. My husband is still trying to recover from the damage that Judge Huguenor brought not only to his relationships with his children, but also to his finances. He will NEVER get back the years that Judge Huguenor, through her incompetence and laziness, took away from him and his children. Judge Parker is a breath of fresh air by comparison; bright, compassionate, truly committed to bringing about the best and most fair result. I am sorry to see her go.

New Judge. Doesn't seem to know what she is doing. Easily falls prey to Narcissist's charm at the peril of innocent parties. Needs to be better educated or go back to the PTA.
