What others have said about Hon. Firdaus F. Dordi



Comment #: CA39914
Judge Dordi is misogynistic and prejudiced. He has no idea what it is like to be victimized. He is not impartial as a judge should be while hearing a testimony allowing exceptions for one party but not the other. All the while repeatedly stating that we need to hurry up he doesn't have time..... Where do I file my complaint against this Judge? He needs to be re-evaluated.

Very observant, intelligence, does research
I have generally done my research with people regarding this Judge, never met anyone who has anything negative to say about him.
I was not so happy with the results I got from him the last time in Court, boats he was actually following the court procedure even though it did not go in my favor


Comment #: CA33248
From the height of his Office and his bench, His Honor feels justified in playing almighty with the "little people" scurrying before him. Namely, people who have been through domestic violence at he hands of powerful men. Prepare to be terrorized in court, via legal means.
The young, polished, polite (never raises his voice), respectful exterior His Honor has cultivated ever since taking his oath some 5 years ago is a veneer. Come bring your case to him if you feel like being a legal guinea pig as he cuts his judicial teeth! Behold the legal dissection in vivo, as he adjudicates cases with the wisdom of a butcher.

Judge Dordi does not have a particularly sophisticated understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence. If you have a non-physical domestic abuse case and are seeking a restraining order or FC 3044 finding, I would recommend 170.6ing Judge Dordi and taking your chances elsewhere.


Comment #: CA24624
WORST family court Judge ever! He does not understand family law at all, and signs documents without apparently even reading them!!!

Comment #: CA23579
Although I lost today, he was (very) patient. I didn’t agree with his interpretation of the law and he took the time to re explain his interpretation. Even when I was taking over him out of fear of being misunderstood, he reprimanded me sternly and respectfully. I wish all judges were this commendable.


Comment #: CA21163
Fair, measured, patient and kind.

170.6 this judge! He has no understanding of civil procedure or the evidence code. Seems completely lost on the simplest of cases. Do not agree to appear in front of him.
