Comment #: CA19850
This judge is fair and equitable. I have been suing the healthcare insurance carriers for years now. I usually have to be in front of the same judge several times for them to actually understand this complicated law. She got it on the first shot. Incredible!. Not expected in a relatively new judge who is dealing with simple small claims cases all day long. She is bright, sharp and doesnt let either party get away with wasting the courts time repeating the same argument. I am so impressed that she actually puts her foot down and gets to the details. I am not so happy that she makes us wait until the end of the day for our cases to be heard, even though it now takes no more time to get through our cases as it does anyone elses. SHe even was instrumental in getting 14 of our cases resolved by arranging another judge in the courthouse to mediate. Honorable, fair, eloquent, respectable and no nonsense are some of the words that come to mind. Recommend her as a judge any day of the week :)

This Judge is terrible for tenants. Obseerved she is particularly hard on african american tenants. Comes from an insurance company background and it shows. She physically presides over the Unlawful Detainer department at Stanley Mosk, but an appearance attorney tends to call the shots for her. Not very well prepared and runs her Court more like a circus than a Courtroom. Lacks the intellect, demeanor and judgment necessary to preside anywhere else. Strongly recommend using 170.6 on her if you are a tenant or not buddies with the appearance attorney. Not suitable for any other place than the UD department, and not really suitable for that.
