Comment #: CA24364
Judge Elvine-Kreis is an intellectual behemoth! He really is head and shoulders above his contemporaries. He takes his job extremely serious and never jokes at inappropriate times. He is kind and gentle to staff and the public.


Comment #: CA23949
Well I am no lawyer but Judge Elvine-Kreis is extremely brilliant, a great orator and blessed with magnetic charisma. Our community is so blessed to have such a great jurist. His sense of humor is legendary in Humboldt. Judge Elvine-Kreis really embodies the spirit and culture of Humboldt. He is the perfect judge for Humboldt who has a long history of extremely ethical judges. You can't go wrong with the Honorable Elvine-Kreis. What a wonderful court we have!


Comment #: CA23819
By far Judge Elive-Kreis is the smartest judge in California. His sharp wit and wisdom are epic. Always quick with a joke and keeps it jolly! We are so blessed to have Judge Elvine-Kreis as the new presiding judge of Humboldt! He will keep things moving smooth for many decades!

This judge has no respect for people who represent themselves. I would disqualify this judge under section 170.6 if I represented myself. His courtroom is a circus of lawyers doing whatever they want.

Judge will change his on rules right in the middle of a hearing. Says one thing but does another. Does not care about the life of the child period.

This judge and his wife love local politics. He is a yes man for the Humboldt establishment for better or worse. Politics trump the law for Elvine-Kreis.


Comment #: CA21276
He ignores evidence and the law and makes decisions that are not in the best interest of the children. He has no problem continuing to expose children to drug addicted parents. He ruins people's lives with a smile on his face. He puts children through tremendous trauma by changing their living circumstances every 6 months or less. It's like he doesn't even see children as human being. He is causing damage to their emotional state. If you can't trust a judge to protect your children how can your children trust anyone?


Comment #: CA19959
After two years he is still ignorant of family law. he will remove your child from you without a hearing and only on his 'hunch'. Very scary Judge.

Brand new judge. No prior civil or family-law experience. Appears conscientious and willing to learn. Nice guy.
