What others have said about Hon. Julie A Emede



Comment #: CA14365
She was fair, respectful and saw through the nonsense of the case and handled it professionally. I was impressed with how she dealt with other cases I heard. It was a sad day when she could no longer be my Judge on my case due to the situation, but she took care of business with great attention to the law and still respected the emotion in the room. I have been in front of 5 Judges in Santa Clara County and she has been the best.

I have to admit I have seen more than my fair share of judge's in my life. I had a checkers past. (Alcoholic)
This was my first time in court after recovering from alcoholism. (Claen and sober from my last arrest, just 3 years and some change) I have to say she is very remarkable in how she conducted the hearing. In all cases before mine and the mess mine was.
I have to honestly say if my case wouldn't have gone in my favor, she was the most patient, kind, informative, fair and understanding judge I've ever been before. It was a privilege to witness her work.
I have to say I look up to how she operated her Cort room and treated everyone with respect.
I hope some day I can become as Serene patient as she is. Jacob S.
