What others have said about Hon. Christopher G Rudy



Comment #: CA16610
He is honest, smart and compassionate judge who will truly acts in the best interest of children.

He is good listener and very quickly gets the full picture. He can see through lies and exaggerations and after spending over a year in his court room i would highly suggest dont even bother. He is too good to be "fooled"

Civil Litigation - Private

We need more judges like him in Santa-Clara family court system. I have been going in front of this judge for years. He is a fine judge who even when i lost defending my client i always knew he was making the right decision.

I'am a parent in a child custody case and judge Christopher Rudy has been the judge who has heard the case a couple times.
I had the need to express how impressed I'am by judge Rudy. He strikes me as a person who does what is fair and I get the impression that he is a good person when a great heart.
