What others have said about Hon. Enrique E Camarena



Comment #: CA22317
Judge Camarena is very calm, polite, and has a cool mustache, but he did not appear to have read my family law pleadings and declarations (aka lazy). He did not follow CA rules of court which requires income and expense statements from the opposition (mom w/ an attorney), does not follow rules (FC 4251c) that requires the judge shall "schedule a hearing de novo within 10 court days." He did not appear interested in actually reviewing the evidence. He was actually admonished me for interrupting opposing counsel when I politely objected that he was flagrantly lying and proved what he was saying was not true.
If he actually read the paperwork for the hearing, I would have respected him more. His questions and lack of understanding of the basic issues indicated zero reading.

Rating:Not Rated
Judge Camarena was thoughtful, respectful and listened to both sides of the story. He took the time to get the facts and he understood the law. He had a lot of compassion.


Comment #: CA14792
Rating:Not Rated
Judge Camarena is humble and he treats every one respectfully. He is at least open to correct mistakes and not like some other judges who are stubborn and not willing to change even court of appeal remand and reverse.
God bless your humble heart Judge Camarena.

Judge Camarena treat people in the courtroom respectfully. His rulings are not fair and one sided.
Some times he does the ruling with out completely reading.


Comment #: CA13986
Judge Camarena is brilliant, fair, thoughtful, and willing to make tough decisions.

He reads every document, and always has an in-depth understanding of the facts of each case, and the applicable law.

He has the perfect temperament for a judge, and the only criticism is minor; he could control the courtroom a little better - he sometimes lets the lawyers and pro per litigants act up too much in his courtroom.

As far as family law is concerned he should not have any business there he believes the fake outlandish horror stories and smear campaigns. your child will end up being given to the other party even if you are the parent due process will not be given either by Camarena and if you are a parent with even a misdemeanor on your record he will look at you like he looks at all criminals
