Recently tried a case in front of this judge and found him to be extremely conscientious and was all around excellent in his rulings and how he handled the courtroom. He was knowledgeable about the law, read the cases and actually had them in front of him while arguing motions in limine. Throughout trial, his rulings were well reasoned and correct even though I was on the wrong side of some of them. One of the best judges in LA County. If you get him, hold on to him because he is a good one. I would try every case I had in front of this judge.

I had the opportunity to sit in Judge Tamzarian's courtroom observing several cases. I was very impressed with his compassion. He was very patient and gave everyone a chance to say everything they needed to say. He explained rules & definitions clearly to those without an attorney. He took time to make sure everyone understood his orders and why he made the decision he did.

This judge would probably be a great mediator, but doesn't seem to have sufficient knowledge or experience to adjudicate family law matters. Loves to talk. More interested in doing what he believes is fair instead of what the law requires. Doesn't understand parental alienation. Probably rules from instructions of the Supervising Judge. Will always 170.6 him from now on.

Biased. As the petitioner with insurmountable amounts of proof and exhibits. The court did not review all. Let Respondent be heard and believed without any burden of proof. This judge is dangerous and is not looking to protect children.

I've been following the Lexi & Ruby Dillon case. There are too many cases getting lost within the OC system and it's failed processes, mine included. Judge Tamzarian, thank you for being so thorough and mindful of all your work. Your Honor, I am praying for you, and for the best possible outcome for all the parties involved.

I have been a family law litigant for over 9 years. It is refreshing to see a family law Judge be lawful and have the best interest of the children top priority in their courtroom. I have been following Lexi and Ruby's case since the beginning. Happy Lexi is coming home! Time for healing!

Dear honorable judge Armen Tamzarian,
We are all admiring your righteousness in dealing with the case of Lexi and her mother Ruby Dillon.
Thank you for being fair-minded and bringing Lexi to her mother.
John Cate is an evil individual and dose not have the interest of the innocent child Lexi in his mind.
we expectant eyes we are fallowing this case and we are confident that you will render Ruby victorious in getting her beloved daughter back in her loving embrace.
Thank you abundantly your honor

I see so many crimes in the news, 2 years for rape, 7 years for manslaughter, gee I even had a friend sentenced to LIFE and she got out in 12 years! Thank-you for upholding the law in Orange County's family court system. Hopefully it will allow my friend, who did nothing other than file for divorce, to see her child. It has been years of alienation and now you're giving her a chance. Thanks Honorable Armen!

I have been monitoring this case from the beginning. It's refreshing to finally see a judge following the law. It has been far too long Lexi Dillon hasn't been allowed to see or speak to her Mother. John Cate should not be involved in any case. His interests are NOT in the well being of any child or family.

Thank You For taking Ruby Dillon's case in a serious manner. John Cate should not be involve in this case neither should represent any minor. He represented my children and he side their dad to the point that he told me " if you don't accept all the terms that dad wants your children are going to end up in a foster home" . John Cate needs to be out of this case. Children need to be protected not harm.

Thank you for being a fair and upstanding Judge. I have followed the Lexi case from the start. I feel you are the best judge to now put this case after all these years up front and judged with no bias and rule with the true laws. Thank you again for being a true and fair judge in the state of California.

Good things to say about him! Upholds the best interests of children. To many superior court judges do not read the facts placed before them...this one does. That ensures the safety of children.

Thank you Judge for observing the law and protecting children. I have been following the Ruby Dillon and Lexi Dillon case closely for years. I commend you for not allowing John Cate to deter you from following the law and being fair. I am hopeful that you will continue to keep John Cate's vendetta out of this case. I truly hope that other judges will take notice of your actions and also be fair and follow the law. Again, thank you your honor.

I've been following Lexi's case very closely. It's refreshing to see a judge finally look out for children! I want to thank him for doing the right thing. It's important that we have more judges like him so that our trust in the system is restored and the children are protected. Praying and cannot wait to see Lexi returned to her mother

Very thoughtful and thorough judge. He does not tolerate game playing at all - not by the parties and not by attorneys. He is very fair though, and truly makes sure all parties get their day in court. He is very patient with parties who are in pro per. I believe he is truly interested in making decisions which are in the best interest of the children involved.
