What others have said about Hon. Brian F. Gasdia



Comment #: CA10161
Its been been 13 years since that fateful day when Judge Gasdia took my teenage son and daughter from me. They were with me until age 14 and 12 when the 14 year old wanted to go live with his dad.

The dad worked nights, so the teenagers would be by themselves after school. I fought this tooth and nail. In & out of the courts since 2001. Judge Gasdia ordered a pysch evaluation, which I had to pay for since the ex had no money. The court appointed evaluator came to the conclusion that my son should be allowed to go to his fathers, but my daughter should be allowed to stay with me.

Judge Gasdia did not heed his own Court appointed physch evaluation and sent both of them to live with their dad. He also ordered that my attorney, the ex did not have one, draw up the orders (which I had to pay for, too!).

The kids went to live with their dad and went from getting straight A's to failing classes. Horrbile situation and the court evaluator knew this. But Judge did not care. I believe he is just biased towards women.

Now my ex is in jail for molesting his step daughter since she was 8 (now 16) & I'm trying to help my daughter overcome what she went thru.

Women beware, of this Judge. If your case is assigned to him, request a recusal. He is not a good family law judge - he does not care what happens to the children in his court.
