Comment #: CA27227
Most Judges wait for the Evidence to be presented before they make ruling ! Must had a golf game so rushed it along and @#$&ed a family out a home. To a grifter with 10 Names and know for identity theft ! JUSTICE is BS


Comment #: CA24400
He told us to make it work for our child. Sent us out to reach an agreement we didn’t come to one (but we came close) so he sent us back out. I respect his view on the importance of two healthy parents parenting while setting aside any petty differences

Outstanding judicial officer. San Diego County is very lucky to have him on the bench. He knows the file. He is patient with litigants.

Judge Mangione is a good guy who wants it like it is and doesn't like BS. While my family law case had a mixed outcome, he was fair and deliberate in his verdict. I would highly recommend him
