What others have said about Hon. Joseph S. Biderman



Comment #: CA15363
Brought empathy, humor, and results to an otherwise uncomfortable situation (private civil litigation). Judge Biderman is very quick and witty. He moves strategically and is effective without being intrusive. High recommend.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA5142
I have for filed a complaint with the Department of Justice, The Los Angeles District Attorney's office And, received a letter from Ms. Jackie Lacey instyructing me to move forward and report what I think is a crime. I have scheduled an appointment with a dective to report "Obstruction of Justice" and "Witness Tampering" by Judge Biderman and the Honorable Lisa Heart-Cole; and Kamala Harris California Attorney General .

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA2210
Extremely fair to both sides. Tries very hard to get both sides to an agreement. Yoda could learn a thing or two from Judge Biderman.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA347
Pays attention to detail. It's obvious that he has read all briefs. Carefully considers all written and oral arguments, gives all sides an opportunity to present their arguments, flexible and good natured.
